Previously, we talked about the benefits of the common surge protector. Today, we’ll go over whole-house surge suppressors and how, as a more advanced form of protection from electrical surges, they might be necessary in your home.
Whole-house surge suppressors allow only the electricity that your home needs, without excess. These surge suppressors protect your entire house, and are a good substitute for using multiple smaller surge protectors. They have a higher capacity to protect your electronic devices than regular, individual surge protectors that plug into your wall.
Surge suppressors are rated in joules, which is the mechanism’s ability to clamp inrushing electricity and charge. They need to be installed professionally by an electrician at your home’s main panel box, so call Eaton Electric today to schedule your appointment!
