Causes of Power Surges
You might be surprised to learn that the average home experiences approximately 20 power surges per day. Even though the majority of power surges your home or business experiences are minor, they are far from harmless. They all have the potential to damage your outlets, fry your appliances and electronics and they can spark electrical fires. Here are some of the more common causes of power surges.
Overloaded outlets and circuits.
Anywhere you have a tangled web of wires, it likely means that you have too many appliances and electronics plugged into the same socket, which can lead to power surges. If you are experience power surges, we will happily check to see if all of the outlets in a room are operation on the same circuit. If so, it might not be an outlet problem but a circuit problem.
Pests like mice can chew on the wiring inside the walls of your home or business and cause the wiring the fail. Damaged or exposed wires can cause power surges because the electricity flowing through them is not being directed in the way it normally would.
Lightning touching down near your power line can lead to an extra spike in electrical voltage. Your cable box, lamp or computer won’t stand a chance against these severe types of surges unless you have surge protection in place.
High-power electrical devices.
High-energy appliances or machines like elevators, refrigerators and air conditioners have all been known to cause spikes because when they power on they draw an abnormally large amount of electricity and overpowers any other appliances and electronics in its path.
The massive burst of energy that turns the power back on for a whole neighborhood can do serious damage to whatever is still connected.
As you can see, there is very little you can control when it comes to surges. All you can do is have the right protections in place, which is why you should call Andee's Electric LLC about our surge protection services today.
