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.

We had Barney's Electric come out to install an outdoor ceiling fan on the patio. We really appreciated the no cost estimate. He quoted a fair price and when he came to install the fan, he worked very quickly and efficiently even though he had lost his assistant during the week and it was a little warm that morning. He was very nice. I would call him again for any additional work we might need.

Barney's Electric took out my old fluorescent lighting fixtures and installed recessed lighting with dimmer switches. He installed under cabinet lighting with switches, and installed USB ports in my kitchen outlets. The lighting transformed my kitchen. It looks so much better! They were nice, polite, and cleaned up after themselves.

My husband and I decided to completely gut and remodel our kitchen. In doing so, most of our existing kitchen electrical would need to be completely redone. After numerous, frustrating interviews with other electricians, I contacted Barney. I am very glad I did. He came out, assessed the project and gave us a clear idea of what to expect. Barney showed up promptly when he was scheduled and got right to work. When issues arose, he was very clear in communicating with me what the situation was and what options we had to address them correctly. He was very good about staying in contact with me throughout the project and even stopped by on occasions to see how other work was progressing so that he and I could coordinate next steps and completion of his work.

Our kitchen looks and operates amazing! He did a great job with all our lighting requests and made sure that we had all the appropriate electrical connections for our high-end appliances and to ensure all work was completed per code for inspection. On short notice he was very responsive and came out to make a last minute adjustment that was necessary to ensure proper installation of our range.

Barney has unbelievable character and is a great guy to work with. It is evident he takes a lot of pride in his work and we would highly recommend him to anyone.
