Did you know that lightning during a storm can harm the electricity and electrical appliances in your home? Any energy spike can cause a power surge, but it’s especially common when you add lightning to the mix. A power surge causes the electricity in your home to spike. The surge is typically brief – less than a second. Even though its so quick, it can result in serious damages to your home and appliances. In a worst-case scenario, surges can even result in an electrical fire. For whole home surge protection, call Excel Electric LLC.
Common Causes of Surges
The average home gets hit with over 20 energy spikes per day, so it’s important to know all of the situations that can cause them. Here are some of the most common:
- Storms. Lightning is a major cause of power surges. Even a lightning strike a mile away can cause long-lasting damage to your home and appliances.
- High-powered devices. Refrigerators, air conditioners, and space heaters require a lot of electricity to work properly and can cause a surge when they are turned on.
- Faulty wiring. If your wiring is old, damaged, or outdated, it’s more susceptible to surges.
