Surge Protector Service in Butler County, PA

The appliances in your home are valuable assets. Your TV, your computer, your stereo, and your refrigerator are all included. Unfortunately, these devices are not safe from harm just because they’re tightly tucked away in your Butler County home. Power surges from your own electrical system can reach these devices and render them useless. To truly protect your appliances, what you need is whole-house surge protection.

By the way, we aren’t referring to the power strips you can buy in stores that feature surge protecting capabilities. Those offer little protection, and they only work for the systems that are directly plugged into them. The type of surge protector you need must be installed by a team of licensed electricians, like those you’ll find at Kennihan Plumbing & Heating, Inc.. Our promise is to treat your home like it was our grandma’s, and that means hooking it up with equipment to protect your investments. Contact us today to schedule surge protection services in Butler County, PA or the surrounding area.

The Reality of Power Surges

How likely do you think it is that a stray lightning bolt will strike your Butler County home, create a power surge, and disable all of your expensive appliances? Very unlikely. However, this is what many people envision when we talk about power surges, and it leads them to believe that there’s a very small chance they’d ever need whole-house surge protection.

The reality is that most power surges are created in your own home every day, just on a much smaller scale. When a particularly powerful appliance in your home demands energy, there’s a chance it can create a power surge and damage other appliances. A whole-house surge protector will route that extra current into the ground and away from your electrical system.

Dependable For Years of Service

Surge protectors are great for the cumulative effect of small power surges through the house, but that’s not to say they can’t help you in the event of extreme events: lightning strikes, stormy weather, or downed powerlines. Even if you’ve personally never encountered one of these issues before, being prepared with a surge protector will make all the difference.

Your surge protector should give you a service life of about two to three years. We can check your surge protector with every maintenance check to ensure that it’s still working properly to protect your appliances.
