Surge protection is actually a very important aspect that you probably need to look into. Especially for very specific types of equipment. Around here power surges are quite common. These surges can potentially damage sensitive equipment. Most of the time by sensitive equipment we mean expensive. These can be things like computers, TV’s and pretty much anything that you happen to have plugged in at the time. We can help you set up all sorts of surge protection so if there ever is an issue you can feel safe knowing that your equipment is not going to burn out!
Should you be using a GFCI circuit breaker to protect your equipment? People usually fall on one of two sides of the argument. Some people want to be extra cautious and make sure that everything that they put on a power outlet is overprotected. Other people really have no idea what the benefits are of adding a circuit breaker, so they really don’t have any protection. What we are going to be able to help you with is set GFCI circuit breakers in very specific areas to protect your most sensitive equipment. It is essentially one of those things you may not notice that you have. At the end of the day though it can make a world of a difference.
Arc Fault Protection
Arc fault protection is currently required for all 15 and 20 amp branch circuits. This essentially means that it can and mostly should be used all over your home. What this type of protection does is literally protect against fires that can be caused by faulty wiring. Shutting off the power when it detects an unusual surge. These devices are able to effectively distinguish between a normal surge which can be caused by a sudden uptick in the use of electrical devices and a potentially dangerous one.
