Electrical Home Safety
The majority of electrical work and wiring in the home lies out of sight and out of mind. On a day-to-day basis, it can be quite easy to forget just how influential the electrical powerhouse behind our walls is. Because of this, it can be difficult to notice when electrical issues may exist and put your family and home at risk. Fires caused by electrical malfunctions are the leading cause of all home and property damage in the United States, making a consistent electrical home safety inspection a must. It is recommended that you receive a home electric inspection whenever:
- You purchase a home, both old and new and in any condition.
- Installing new appliances like washers and dryers or dishwashers.
- Your home is undergoing renovations.
- The home is older than 40 years old.
- You feel as though there is a possibility of existing electrical work issues in your home.

It’s not often that we even realize we’ve experienced a power surge in our homes. We experience, on average, about 20 power surges a day in our homes. Most of these power surges happen internally, or because we’ve incited them. These power surges are not your stereotypical, entire-house-shuts-down type, they are power fluctuations only noticed by the appliances in your home.
Over time, these power surges ultimately wear away at your household electronics and appliances. It’s not uncommon for computerized appliances to be damaged or even destroyed by these surges. Most often, their lifespans are decreased by up to 30%. However, there is a practical solution to maintaining your appliances’ lifespan and protecting the electronics in your home while still being able to use them: home electrical surge protection.
A whole-house surge protector is the best form of home surge protection. It is designed to protect against costly and destructive transient surges that travel through your electricity supply. Home electrical surge protection blocks and redirects the voltages in order to regulate the voltage amount from your electrical appliances. They are installed at your main electrical panel and electricity source to ensure maximum protection for your entire home. They protect against all of the following:
- Major appliance disruptions
- Faulty wiring
- High voltage demand
- And more…
