Surge protectors are inexpensive insurance policies for expensive electronics and appliances that might be vulnerable in the event of a power surge. For example, if you have a large flat screen TV or an expensive computer game system, it’s worthwhile to purchase a surge protector so that the risk of it getting damaged is less.
Grounding & Bonding
Grounding your electrical system is essential to protect you, your loved ones, and your electrical equipment from the dangers of high voltage. When a conductive surface, such as metal, isn’t appropriately grounded and becomes electrically energized or charged, it can send a strong enough electrical jolt to administer a dangerous shock.

Grounding wires discharge excess electricity into the ground safely so that it doesn’t cause injuries, damage or electrical fire.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to ground my wiring?
Suppose you care about safety or the law, yes! The NEC (National Electrical Code) requires all household electrical systems to be grounded. If that isn’t enough, think about the safety ground wire presents. Instead of an appliance discharging stored electricity to the ground, it would go directly to the next thing to complete the circuit – you!
What size generator do I need?
The generator size your home or building needs depends on what you want to have power in the event your electricity goes out. Size, when discussing generators, usually refers not to the physical size of the generator, but to its electrical capacity instead. For example, if you’ll want to keep your air conditioner, refrigerator, and television running simultaneously, you can determine the electrical capacity you’ll need by adding up the total watts of each piece of equipment to get the amount. Our generator installation experts here at MK Electric are happy to assist you with determining the size of generator you need.
Will a surge protector lower my electric bill?
Do backup generators need to be maintained?
All generators require periodic maintenance, such as oil and filter changes, to ensure maximum performance for years of reliable service. We recommend you have your unit serviced every six months. Refer to the owner’s manual for routine maintenance procedures and schedules. Schedule generator maintenance with MK Electric today!
