The Benefits of Whole House Surge Protectors

The Benefits of Whole House Surge Protectors

If you ask any electrician in South Carolina what one of the most important things a homeowner can do to protect their home and family, the answer you get will likely be the installation of a whole house surge protector. Trusting your home, electronics and possibly even your life to those little plus in strips is foolhardy at best. They are unlikely to provide you any real protection especially in the event of something major like a suddenly downed power line or a lightning strike. Either of those two events could leave your entire house vulnerable and could cause a power surge that completely destroys your wiring, equipment and could even lead to a fire. For those reasons, electrical companies and contractors recommend a better, more comprehensive plan of action.


A whole house surge protector is comprised of more than just a few power strips. It is three levels of protection that gives you more security and peace of mind. When you bring an electrician in to install this protection, you will be doing more than just protecting one piece of equipment, you are protecting your entire house. The whole house surge protector should include protection at the utility meter, at the load side of the main service panel and then at the equipment throughout your home. This will provide the maximum level of security from dangerous power surges and unexpected events.


It is impossible to protect some of the most devastating surges, so you cannot effectively expect to prevent the damages they can cause. Even if you do have the power strip surge protectors for one item, it will be of no use if the surge destroys everything else in the home. Those strips also do nothing regarding the potential fire hazards of damaged wiring and overheating electronic devices. It really is about getting the most protection for your family and everything that you have worked so hard to have.
