Whole House Surge Protection

Protect Your Mesa Area Home With Whole House Surge Protection

Your home in the Phoenix Metro area is vulnerable to a few different types of surges that can damage your home’s appliances, electronics and electric system. Lightning and downed power lines can cause serious surges that can cause thousands of dollars of damage, while smaller surges originating from your own appliances can accumulate similar damage over a longer amount of time.

How much does it cost to have a whole house surge protector installed?

On average it will cost between $350 - $800 to have a whole house surge protector installed in your home. This price includes cost of installation and the device itself. Some factors that could influence the price include:

  • Subpanel - If you have a subpanel, you will need to install a separate surge protector to cover it.
  • Surge Protector - The type and brand of surge protector you choose, as well as how much power it can handle, will affect the price.
  • Warranty - An extended warranty will typically be more expensive. Make sure to choose a warranty that protects against “workmanship defects” for maximum coverage.

How do I protect my house from power surges?

The best way to protect your house from power surges is to have a whole house surge protector installed by an electrician. Some benefits of this device include:

  • Protection against power surges for every electronic device in your home without having to purchase individual power strips on each outlet. Surges are unpredictable and can be devastating. They can come from lightning strikes, utility companies, downed power lines and even your own appliances.
  • Surge protectors have been shown to extend the life of your electronics by stopping minor surges that you may not even notice.

How does a whole house surge protection work?

A whole house surge protector works by either blocking or directing to the ground excess surges in power if the voltage exceeds a certain amount. It protects from both internal and external power surges. Many of us do not think of internal surges harming other appliances we own, but experts estimate that 60 - 80% of surges come from your own major appliances cycling on and off. A whole house surge protector is installed to your electrical box and must be properly grounded or else will not function as it should. It is highly recommended that you hire a licensed electrician for this type of work to ensure safety and functionality.

The Benefits of Whole House Surge Protection

A whole house surge protector is a small investment compared to the payback you will receive:

  • Protection Against Sudden Damage - These devices are strong enough to absorb extreme power surges such as those caused by lightning strikes.
  • Protection Against Hidden Surges - It’s estimated that about 80% of surges originate within your own home, especially when large appliances such as your HVAC system cycle on.
  • Superior Results - You can spend money on many point-of-use surge protectors, but you probably can’t cover every possible area that you need covered. A surge protector meant for your entire home will do a more comprehensive job.

Replacing expensive appliances prematurely because of electrical damage, let alone having to replace any of your electronics, is not something you have to risk. A simple, professional whole house surge protector from an experienced minuteman electrician will slash the chances.
