    Surge Protection – Repair, Replace, and Install in RI

    The average life expectancy for an electric range is 13 to 15 years. The challenge is most appliances like an electric range get hit with 20 power surges per day.

    The vast majority of them are micro surges. They are so micro; no one even knows they happen. Except for your electric range that is.

    Over time these micro-surges kill up to 30% of your appliances life expectancy. That 13 to 15 years of use just shrunk to 9-10 years.

    If you want to get more life out of your appliances and electrical devices, you need to protect them from these surges.

    Repair Your Surge Protector

    Most people read repair your surge protector and ask, “why would I ever need that?” They are right. Most of the surge protectors’ consumers use are too small for repairs.

    So, let’s explore two kinds of surge protectors available before we discuss repairs.

    Point of Use

    If you plugged in a surge protector into an outlet, it is a point of use surge protector. Many people use this device for a wide array of home and/or office protections.

    The garden variety surge protector (also called a surge suppressor or surge diverter) has six outlets and a 3-prong Power Plug. Your standard surge protector can absorb between 200 to 400 joules of power. Higher end suppressors can stop up to 600 joules.

    Whole House

    You need point of use protectors in your home. However, if you want to block transient surges from the electrical grid, you need a whole house surge protector.

    These surge diverters stop electrical surges from entering your home before it hits your home’s main electrical panel.
    By protecting your panel, you protect your home from dangerous surges outside your home.

    You still need to defend yourself with point of use devices. Often surges come from the main electrical panel or faulty whole house surge protectors.

    That brings up the issue of whether your home is secure from outside surges. If not, you might need to repair your whole house surge protector to ensure it continues working in the future. More than likely you need to fix the connection between the whole house surge protector and your electrical system

    Note: the point of use device repairs will probably cost more than buying a new one. Dispose of it properly and replace it.

    If you have any questions about how to repair your surge protector, then contact Mister Sparky for a free assessment to determine the next steps.

    Replacing Your Surge Protector

    Frequently when you repair the electrical system around the power surge, you end up having to replace surge protector as well.

    At Mister Sparky we understand which suppressors keep your home safe. You use our recommendations to create a comprehensive safety plan with point of use and whole house protectors for your home.

    All the new technology today comes at a cost. It is consuming more energy than in the past. That means homes (especially older ones) must adjust their power consumption to fit the needs of the occupants.

    Let us know how we can keep your growing list of electrical appliances safe. Between the home automation, smart homes, and computer revolution, energy needs are growing at a rapid rate.

    It is part of the reason the EIA predicts world energy use will increase another 28% by 2040. Replacing older surge diverters with newer models can reduce the number of surges that come from more power.

    What People Say
    Excellent service — we would recommend Mister Sparky to anyone!— Mary
    Very friendly and knowledgeable technician. They were prompt and organized. I thought they were a little pricey, but I've yet to encounter a cheap electrician!— Janine T.
    I thought it was kind of expensive to screw an electric bolt to the side of the house. It took no more than 10-15 minutes to erect the ladder, climb it, screw the bolt in, and take the ladder down.— Emilie L.
    The electrician was great and explained each step in the process as he moved through the work. He did a great job of cleaning up after the work. The wiring installed under the sink was in metal casing to protect is from potential leaks. I have not had an electrician in for a long time, so my knowledge about cost is not current, but I felt it was a bit high. However for quality of work, timeliness in terms of projected arrival, focus on the task, including not taking phone calls; clear explanation of work, and clean up, I would highly recommend the company.— Chuck S.
