Top 2 benefits of surge protectors in 2022

When the wiring in your house or workplace experiences sudden bursts of high electrical voltage, power surges happen. They could be minor or severe, but they’re never harmless.

A power surge can damage the internal batteries or circuit boards of electronics that are plugged into an outlet, making them useless.

Lightning, faulty wiring, electrical overload, and high-power electrical devices are common causes of power surges. They’re defined as an increase in the voltage flowing through electrical units that rise above the standard voltage levels. 

One way to protect both your electronics and appliances from power surges is with a surge protector. The device can also: 

•    Prevent the need for expensive repairs 

•    Extend the life of your appliances and electronics

At Eddy Power, our skilled and experienced electricians have the tools and knowledge to protect your home from power surges. And with the holiday season coming up, with all its plugged-in lights, baking and cooking, and new electronic toys to play with, there’s no better time to protect your home.

Why an electrician should help set up your holiday lighting

Hanging lights is a great way to embrace the holiday spirit. Yet, putting lights up on your property’s exterior can be risky in more ways than one, so it makes sense to get help from a licensed electrician to ensure your home or business, and the people in it, are safe.

Putting lights up can involve reaching and working with tools while on a ladder. Hiring an electrician like Eddy Power can help you reduce the chance of a mishap. A professional electrician will have insurance and be used to working on a ladder.

When it comes to the actual lights, some of them — as well as some extension cords — aren’t meant for outdoor use. An electrician can make sure everything is rated and configured properly, and can also help you determine what will be required if you want to run a dedicated circuit to your eaves for holiday lights and other outdoor applications.

Enjoy your holiday lights without the worry of electrical hazards. Contact the skilled and experienced electricians at Eddy Power for your lighting installation needs.
