Power surges are unavoidable, which is why business owners have to take steps in order to prevent massive damage from electrical surges, including lightning protection and other surge protection systems. There are a number of ways a surge can happen, but the effects are detrimental regardless of source.
To guard against surges, you need adequate surge protection. Temp-Rite Electrical is here to help you install the lightning and surge protection systems you need.
Electrical surges are a possibility within any electrical system, whether it’s within the typical residential home, a moderate to small retail business in a medium to small typical storefront, or a large business replete with manufacturing, maintenance and machine repair, and all admin and office staff contained under one roof, or anything else you can imagine. There is literally no electrical system that is free of surges.
There are a number of causes. One cause, the one that people fear most but oddly have to worry the least about in terms of probability of occurrence, is a lightning strike. A lightning that strikes power line, for instance, produces an enormous surge. This isn’t nearly as common, though, as the typical cause of electrical surges – namely, a large and sudden increase in net power usage.
Consider the typical home. Certain things run all the time – such as refrigerators and other appliances – but certain things do not. When a person turns on the washing machine, this creates a sudden demand for power. As more power enters the circuits, this can cause a surge and in a poorly-wired or poorly maintained home, damage to the wiring…if not a possible electrical fire.
This is a danger in any electrical system. To guard against it, surge protection systems have to be put in place in order to guard against the possible detrimental effects. This can include a surge arrester where the power lines meet your building, surge protectors at breaker boxes, and down to even at the outlet level. This safeguards your operation from harmful electrical surges from any source. Temp-Rite Electrical can help you, by designing, installing and maintaining the surge protection system you need to protect your home or business from lightning and other power surges.
