Electrical surges can damage your electronics and appliances. Many electronics and appliances have small circuit boards in them that control the functions, and an electrical surge can “fry” these boards. This renders your devices useless. Additionally, although rare, surges can even cause a fire in your home.
Luckily, many surge protection devices exist, ranging from surge-protecting power strips to whole house surge protection. While using smaller and local devices can help, you leave many of your appliances unprotected. Because of this, the best option is to protect your whole home.
If you decide to install whole house surge protection, American Air will come to your home and install devices in your electric panel. When the devices detect the electricity goes above a certain level, it sends the excess out and grounds it. This prevents damage to the appliances and electronics in your home.
These devices need regular maintenance, and American Air can service them with ease. If your home does not have a whole house surge protector, you might want to consider protecting your home and appliances by calling American Air today.
