What is a surge and where do they come from?

A surge is an abnormal or spike in voltage and current in your electrical system.  Your electrical system can only handle so much electricity.

  1. Surges come from mother nature
  2. Surges come from your utility company

When an electrical spike comes through it can damage your electrical system and everything that is tied into your system. This includes anything that is plugged-in regular outlets.

You may be safe from lighting but!

Did you know that you are more likely being hit by a surge from your Power Company than you do from a lightning surge?

Power surges occur when something boosts the electrical charge in the power lines. This causes an increase in the electrical potential energy, which can increase the current flowing to your to your home.
