Residential & Commercial Surge Protector Installation in Lancaster, OH
Surge protectors minimize the amount of voltage supplied to electric devices in your home when a power surge occurs, preventing those devices from getting more electricity than required and protecting them from electrical damage.

MK Electric installs whole-house surge protection in homes and commercial businesses in Central Ohio and surrounding areas.

4 Benefits of a Whole-House Surge Protector
- Transient Surges Protection
Short transient surges usually come from inside the home. It could be something like a high-power air conditioner’s motor that generates the surge. Spikes don’t usually cause serious damage in a single event. However, the impacts add up over time. They can decrease performance and shorten their lifespan. It’s harder on larger appliances like microwaves, ovens, refrigerators, and washing machines. Larger appliances turning on and off periodically are often the source of internal surges.
- Prevent Damage to Appliances and Devices
The same appliances that generate power surges can be damaged by them. If your fridge fails because of a power surge, you won’t be able to keep your food sufficiently cold. A surge can cause an air conditioner or heater to breakdown; it can make your home uncomfortably chilly in winter and in the summer it can become dangerously hot. The damage can be quite expensive.
- Electrical Fire Prevention
Surges in your home’s wiring can cause sparks, overheating, fires and electrical arcing. Having this protection against surges of 40,000 amps, high external voltages can’t reach internal circuits and damage is prevented during internal surges Because faulty outlets, wiring problems, and aging appliances are among the most common causes of residential fires, it is essential to address these problems to maximize home safety.
- Protect Your High-Tech Gadgets
The average home has more devices and appliances now than ever before. Without a whole house surge protector, these expensive products are vulnerable to power surges. Most appliances you buy today have sensitive circuit boards and other components. Smart phones and tablets are also vulnerable to power surges. A single power surge can damage a circuit board beyond repair and disable the appliances connected to it, wiping vast amounts of data contained on personal devices.
Protect Your Home With a Whole-House Surge Protector.
How much are your electronics and appliances worth? That 60-inch TV or your Bluetooth speakers? What about the data you have stored on your laptop, desktop computer, and tablet? Could you replace it if you lost it? What about all the photos, music, and videos stored on your computers and mobile devices? Imagine how you’d feel learning of a power grid problem in your neighborhood while you were at work or on vacation. Knowing that all your electrical appliances are protected makes all the difference in that situation.
Whole house surge protection isn’t that costly to install, to begin with. Compared to the loss of all your appliances and electronics, it’s a bargain. A power surge coming from outside your home can destroy the circuitry of your expensive refrigerator, wipe your computers’ hard drives, and fry the rest of your electrical system for good measure. And remember, not every appliance can be protected with a plug-in surge protector. Will you pull out your installed refrigerator or dishwasher to ensure they’re protected at the outlets? Instead, a whole house surge protector acts as a filter, keeping out unsafe and irregular voltage so that all your electronics and appliances aren’t affected.
