What Is A Surge?
A power surge, also known as a voltage surge or transient voltage, are sudden and unexpected spikes in voltage that travel through your electrical system. While they might only last a millisecond but, at its most destructive, it can carry tens of thousands of volts – enough to cause serious damage to your home.
These sudden spikes in voltage can damage or break appliances and electronics including computers, cell phones, TVs, dryers, refrigerators, HVAC systems, and more.
Top Causes Of Power Surges:
- Downed Power Lines
- Lightning Storms
- Faulty or Damaged Wiring
- Electrical Utility Switching
- Turning High-Powered Electrical Devices On and Off
