Surge Protector At Midway Services of St Petersburg, Clearwater and Tampa, we offer surge protection services to protect your home against electro-static damage, voltage spikes and electrical fires. Our Tampa Bay area is world famous for its lightning displays. These natural phenomena are beautiful to watch but can be deadly to sensitive electronic equipment in your home. Midway offers whole home surge protection solutions that will safeguard all outlets and appliances in your home. This is a great alternative to installing individual surge protection on individual outlets around the house. When You Need Surge Protection According to the How-ToGeek website, “Electrical sockets are supposed to provide a consistent voltage of electricity, and devices you plug into your power outlets depend on this. In some cases, a power spike can occur when the voltage suddenly increases. This can often be caused by lightning strikes, power outages, or malfunctions in the grid the power company is responsible for. A spike is a short increase in voltage, while a surge is one that lasts more than a few seconds. Surges are usually caused by problems with the electrical grid.” If you plan on selling your home at any point down the road, making sure it is protected against voltage spikes will help its resale value. Potential buyers will look at this feature as one less thing they will have to worry about in the future. Voltage spikes can come from either inside your Tampa Bay area home, such as from blown fuses, or from outside sources, such as lightning or cut power lines. If a voltage spike hits your house, any appliances that are plugged in will most likely be ruined, even if they are powered off. Consider for a second every appliance that is plugged into an outlet in your home: Televisions Kitchen appliances Washers and dryers Computers Printers and scanners Imagine how expensive replacing all those appliances would be and what would happen if the melted wires started an electrical fire. Most of the expensive appliances in our homes, such as computers and printers, come with what are known as microprocessors, which are multipurpose devices that deal with the digital data for both input and output functions. These units are sensitive to power surges and, if damaged, may require complete replacement. Not only will you lose money on repair or replacement costs, but you could also lose valuable data. This is just one example of the many reasons why having surge protection in your Tampa Bay area home is necessary. Think about how frustrating it would be to have to spend thousands of dollars on repairing/replacing appliances or mending damage caused by an electrical fire—especially when it could have been avoided with a simple electrical overflow protector installation.
