Bad weather, natural disasters, and other issues can result in your home losing power. While you likely take steps to ensure to prepare for a power outage – what about the opposite? Do you know how to protect your home from excessive electricity?
If a power surge occurs, this is exactly what happens. If there’s a sudden wave of excess electricity coming into your home, it can cause damage to your expensive electronics, appliances, and even your HVAC system.
When you have appliances that rely on electricity – even just partially – they can get burned out for good if a surge occurs.
To help protect your home and HVAC system, you need Ultra Shield Surge.
Understanding Power Surges
A power surge is more dangerous for your HVAC system than a power outage. Also, it’s almost impossible to predict when a power surge will occur. A spike that only lasts one second can result in over 1,000 volts being sent into your home over a short period of time.
Your Home and Power Surges
Usually, homes are equipped with 120-volt service. This means that the wiring doesn’t allow over 120 volts through the lines at any given time. Consumer electronics, like computers, coffee makers, and televisions, are specifically designed to work with this current.
This is one reason that you see your electric dryer has a different-looking outlet. Large appliances that require more electricity are equipped with 220 volts. This means they must have a different outlet and line.
In any case, when a surge occurs, your circuit breaker can’t even deal with it. When this happens, you get over 120 or even 220 volts moving through the wires in your home. Sudden blasts and surges can fry the appliance you have connected – including your HVAC system.
When you get in touch with our experienced technicians, we can evaluate your home and determine if Ultra Shield Surge is right for you. This will provide protection for your HVAC system against a sudden surge that can damage it or require that you replace it.
