Dangerous runoff electricity, known as a power surge, can destroy your most expensive electronics. The source of the power surge determines whether it is internal or external. Mister Sparky electricians offer the solutions to both.

External Power Surge Protectors

A lightning strike hitting a power line or transformer is one of the most common origins of this destructive phenomenon. Even if your electronics are hooked into power strips, the excess electricity forced through your devices can still incinerate them. A whole-house surge protector redirects the excess power harmlessly through your home’s grounding path. Partner with Mister Sparky Electric to keep your electronics 100% safe.

Internal Power Surge Protectors

Internal power surges are caused by your electronics shutting off temporarily, which redirects electricity to other electronics. On average, twenty of these internal surges happen every day. Electronics constantly exposed to internal power surges have their lifespan reduced by one-third! If you haven’t taken precautions against internal power surges, they are taking a toll. You are paying full price for your electronics but only enjoying two-thirds! Work with a Mister Sparky technician to eliminate these internal surges.

Surge Protection Maintenance

Since your surge protectors perform such a crucial task, ensure a Mister Sparky technician examines and adjusts them from time-to-time. Invest in power surge hardware or you may be forced to invest in a new television, computer, and other electronics.
