Surge Protection in Saskatoon

Keeping You Safe from Electrical Damage & Fires

Have you ever stopped to think how many electronic devices you have in your home? You rely on steady electricity to power your televisions, your computers, your phone chargers, your refrigerator and other kitchen appliances, and more. As we get more and more of these devices in our homes, we start to accumulate a tangled mess of power cords and extension strips. The more you plug in, the more you’re putting your home at risk for an over-voltage situation, or, worse, an electrical fire. Additionally, any storms can easily knock out your power and damage the function of your electronics.

Centennial Plumbing, Heating & Electrical offers an easy way to protect your devices and maintain a steady flow of electricity in your home. Our Saskatoon surge protection specialists care about the safety of you and your loved ones. Using our many years of training and experience, we will expertly install whole home surge protection directly onto the meter at your electrical panel.

What Is a Power Surge?

To power your devices and appliances, electricity typically flows in a steady current from the electric company to your electrical panel and from the panel to your outlets and so on. When there is a steady current, electricity is safe and easy to monitor. However, there are times when the electrical current will spike, also known as a surge.

There are a few different things that can cause a power surge, including:

  • High-power electrical devices: Certain devices and appliances in your home have large power demands. Examples of these include your refrigerator, your air conditioner, and even space heaters. Whenever you switch these devices on, because they demand more electricity, it can cause a surge.
  • Faulty wiring or tripped circuit breakers: Any time you have faulty electrical components, such as wiring, it can affect your electrical system’s ability to handle spikes. Additionally, any short circuiting can result in power surges.
  • Lightning: Your electrical system is designed to channel electricity. However, a lightning strike contains quite a powerful current. Whenever it strikes close to a power line, this can be incredibly dangerous because your electrical system doesn’t know how to do anything but accept the excessive current. A surge due to a lightning strike can be so powerful that it can damage a computer monitor within seconds.
  • Power outages: Whether due to a storm or some other reason, any time your power goes out you are at risk for a power surge. This is because when the power returns, it must supply electricity to all of the devices you had on at once. This demand can sometimes be too much on your electrical system and may result in damage.

How Whole Home Surge Protection Works

Installed directly onto your electrical panel, whole home surge protection works by restricting any over-voltages from your local electrical company to your home. From there, it helps protect your devices from surges within the home, preventing any spikes from reaching and potentially your appliances and plugged in devices.

Examples of devices that benefit from whole home surge protection include:

  • Cellphones
  • Televisions
  • Gaming systems
  • Stereo systems
  • Computers
  • Washers and dryers
  • Kitchen appliances
  • HVAC systems
