Why Whole Home Surge Protection is a Must-Have for Florida Homeowners

Living in Florida has its perks, such as beautiful beaches, warm weather, and diverse wildlife. However, it also has its downsides, such as frequent thunderstorms and lightning strikes that can cause power surges that damage electrical appliances and equipment. These power surges can harm your home and your wallet, which is why surge protection is necessary.

Surge protection protects your home's electrical system and appliances from power surges. Power surges can cause a significant amount of damage to your home's electrical system, including your appliances, televisions, computers, and other electronics. Power surges can occur due to lightning strikes, your utility company, and even the use of high-powered electrical equipment such as air conditioners and refrigerators.

While some utility companies offer surge protection built into their meters for a monthly fee, it's always best to install surge protection by a licensed electrical contractor. Here's why:


As a licensed electrical contractor, we can customize surge protection to meet your needs. We will evaluate your home's electrical system and recommend the appropriate surge protection system to keep your appliances safe.

Quality of Equipment

We use high-quality, name-brand surge protection equipment. These surge protection devices are designed to withstand high voltage and last longer than the built-in protection offered by utility companies.


Installing surge protection requires technical expertise and knowledge of electrical systems. Our licensed electricians have the training and experience necessary to ensure the safe installation of surge protection.


Installing surge protection can save you money in the long run. If a power surge damages your appliances or electrical system, you could face expensive repair or replacement costs. Surge protection can help prevent these costly repairs and replacements.

In conclusion, surge protection is necessary for anyone living in Florida due to the frequency of thunderstorms and lightning strikes. While utility companies offer surge protection built into their meters, it's best to have it installed by a licensed electrical contractor for customization, equipment quality, warranty, safety, and cost-effectiveness.
