We all know that spring and summer in Florida means surprise showers and thunderstorms, but did you know lightning strikes and the subsequent power surges are more common in Florida than any other state in the US? The lightning generated in these storms poses a real threat to your home’s electrical system and subsequently, your family’s safety. You want to make sure your home’s electrical system is safe from power surges.

Lightning is a culprit for electrical surges that can wreak havoc on your home’s electrical system and appliances, and even produce sparks that can cause deadly house fires. Lightning doesn’t even need to directly hit your home for a power surge to occur. If your home is close enough to a lightning strike, the power surge can come into your electrical system through the local infrastructure and may cause multiple problems:

Fire Hazards

If the surge passes through old wiring, it may be burned out, creating a fire hazard. Sparks produced in electrical systems from surges may also lead to fires.

Damage to Expensive Appliances

A surge can cause major damage to plugged in electronics like cooking appliances, televisions or computers. You may need to repair or even replace affected appliances.

Property Damage

Besides the threat to your family, an electrical house fire may cause costly damage or worse, total loss of your home. Your home is quite an investment to lose.

How A Surge Arrester Protects You:

[/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ spacing=”” center_content=”no” link=”” target=”_self” min_height=”” hide_on_mobile=”small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility” class=”” id=”” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_position=”left top” background_repeat=”no-repeat” hover_type=”none” border_size=”0″ border_color=”” border_style=”solid” border_position=”all” padding=”undefined” dimension_margin=”undefined” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”left” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_offset=”” last=”no”][fusion_text]

When a surge comes through the surge arrester, the dangerously high voltage current is redirected into the ground to divert it away from your home’s electrical system. This protects your electrical system and appliances from ever being exposed to a dangerous power surge and avoids the potential fire hazards and damages associated with a surge.

A whole house surge arrester is generally connected to your home’s electric service box. The arrester still allows normal voltage levels to continue through to your appliances, even while diverting damaging high voltage.
