Surge Protection in Charlotte, Mooresville and the Lake Norman Area.
Electrical surges are fluctuations in power. In most instances, you won’t notice a power surge, but they happen frequently and are detrimental to household appliances and electronics. Electrical surges can damage, destroy, or shorten the lifespan of everything from your laptop to your dishwasher to your television. At Douthit Electrical, our licensed electricians can set up your Charlotte home with surge protection, so that your pricey electronics and appliances won’t suffer the consequences of power fluctuations.Common Causes of Electrical Surges
- Lightening strikes
- Demands for power that are too high
- Excess voltage is redirected in a home when a motor is suddenly shut off
1. Whole House Surge Protection – A whole house surge protector is installed at your electrical panel or electrical meter by a licensed electrician. This will protect your home from electrical surges that come in through your home’s electrical supply, but the device cannot protect your appliances from surges caused from within the home.
2. Point-Of-Use Surge Protection – A point-of-use surge protector usually plugs right into the outlet of the appliance that you want to protect. If there are a limited number of electronics or appliances that you are seeking to protect inside your home, point-of-use surge protectors may be the right answer for you.
