Whole-Home Surge Protector FAQs

If you have questions about installing a whole-home surge protector, please call our friendly specialists. Here are some common questions our customers ask.

What Causes a Power Surge?

A power surge occurs when the amount of power flowing through a circuit overloads the capacity of that circuit. Minor surges happen often and are easily handled by internal regulators in equipment. But higher-voltage, more powerful surges can be catastrophic. There are many reasons for a power surge, including:

  • Thunderstorms
  • Power outages
  • Tripped circuit breakers
  • Short circuits

The lifespan of your whole-home surge protector depends on the frequency and severity of power surges in your area. However, most models are rated for up to 10 years.

4-Star Electric also offers a 3-year parts and labour guarantee on all electrical installations. So when you install a whole-home surge protector, your investment is protected too!

Plug-in surge protectors, or “power bars,” are far less effective than whole-home surge protection. This is because plug-in surge protectors:

  • DO NOT protect ALL the devices and electronic appliances in your home.
  • DO NOT protect hardwired electrical equipment (dryers, ovens, etc.).
  • DO NOT provide insurance benefits.
  • DO NOT always protect against minor surges because of poor surge ratings.

A plug-in protector only serves a purpose at a specific location in your home. A whole-home surge protector prevents electrical damage before a surge enters ANY of the circuitry inside your home.

A whole-home surge protector is typically more expensive than a point-of-use protector. But a whole-home surge protector can save you money in the long run.

In addition to the potential for discounts from your insurance company, a professional install can save you from regularly replacing expensive, damaged devices and appliances. A whole-home surge protector is an investment in electrical security.
