Surge Protection

Surge protection is an extremely important safety feature that many homeowners ignore. Your home has electrical power surges everyday. Some may be minor and some can be major. Most go unnoticed. It is the major surges that will do harm to your home. These surges destroy your computers, televisions (older and the new flat screens), dishwashers, washing machines, dryers, stereo equipment, home theater equipment and gaming systems beyond repair. Virtually anything that you have plugged into the wall receptacle is in danger.

Surge Protection

You are probably asking yourself, “What is a whole house surge protector and how exactly does it benefit me? Below you will find answers to these questions and many more.

What Is A Whole Home Surge Protection?

Whole house surge protection acts as a first line of defense against electrical power surges. It offers protection against large power surges that can cause immense and immediate damage to electrical and electronic equipment throughout your home.

Whole house surge suppressors also help protect your electronic devices against continual small, unnoticeable power surges that happen every day. These daily occurrences can slowly wear down and shorten the life of your electronic equipment.

Think about it. In today’s world, circuit boards are in almost everything. And a power surge can damage a lot more than just the TV or the computer. Circuit boards can be found in your refrigerator, your dishwasher, your microwave, your oven/range, washing machines, clothes dryers, sewing machines, telephones, clocks, crock pots, blenders, toasters, coffee makers and so on.

Imagine how much it would cost to repair or replace any or all of those items! A service visit for just one appliance would run hundreds of dollars!

Installed at your electric meter, whole house surge protectors offer an excellent first line of defense to protect the thousands of dollars of electrical and electronic equipment in your home. And when done properly, they offer protection against surges through power lines, cable TV lines and telephone lines.

So while nothing can fully protect you against a direct lighting strike, whole home surge protection is your best … first line of defense against most electrical surge threats.

So Barney is my hero tonight! The AC went out this afternoon and the AC guy couldn't fix it and determined we needed an electrician! On a very hot Friday evening, right at dinner time, Barney came to our rescue. He was professional, quick, and personable! I'm so grateful for people like him who are willing to come to help - even on a Friday evening at the end of a long day! Thank you, Barney!

Barney and his guys came out the next day to replace a panel that had totally burned up preventing us from using our A/C in this heatwave. They didn't have to do this next day and they could have told me to wait until next week (like some of the other companies did). Barney understood that this was an emergency and came out after they already did a panel installation earlier that day (this is a time-consuming job) squeezing me in with other appointments. They worked quickly in the 100+ heat and did an excellent job. I'm very happy with the quality of the work at a reasonable price and Barney and his crew are a great team and were actually a pleasure to be around! I will use these guys much more in the future.

Outstanding Service! Barney and his team are great!

I called Barney on a Saturday morning expecting to leave a message for a call back on Monday. I was surprised that Barney answered my call. I was able to send him a list of my needs using his website. Barney called me the following Monday morning to schedule a date for the work to be completed.

Barney and his associates arrived on time and were very courteous and professional. They replaced several electrical outlets and a light fixture, added an outlet where I needed it, repaired two ceiling fans and installed a ceiling fan on my patio. All of this was done in about 3 hours.

I mentioned to one of the associates (Rusty) that the plug on my expensive hair dryer was burned up. He helped me located a replacement plug online. I called Barney when I received the plug, and he and Rusty came by and replaced the plug on the hair dryer (no extra charge). Thanks to Rusty, I'm so happy that I didn't have to trash this expensive hair dryer!!!!

Barney's Electric is definitely who I'll go to for future electrical needs!
