Surge Protection in York
A power surge can travel through the wiring in your entire house and cause serious damage to appliances and electronic equipment. Surge protection strips and protective panels cannot completely protect your home from the significant harm caused by a potent power surge. Brooks Electric offers reliable protection devices and techniques that keep York properties safe.
What Is a Power Surge?
When the flow of electricity is interrupted during a power outage and then starts up again, after power is restored, low to high level surges cause thousands of electric volts to travel through the wiring. This can cause damage, ranging from a blown fuse to melted appliance parts or worse. This sudden and abrupt increase in electricity can cause electrical systems to overheat, become permanently damaged, or catch fire. Personal computers, audio- visual equipment, fridges, air conditioners and other sensitive electronic equipment are all susceptible to substantial harm caused by unexpected power surges.
External Power Surges
Power surges that occur outside your home or business location often involve a tree limb that has come into contact with a power line, or lightning that has struck a piece of utility equipment. Major outdoor power surges can travel through telephone and cable lines and cause serious and sudden damage to surrounding buildings and areas. Property owners in outlying areas of the York region are particularly vulnerable to external power surges caused by lightning and extreme weather conditions.
