Our belief at LinkNow Media is that safety must be everyone’s first priority, and that is why we encourage the use of high quality surge protectors within homes and businesses. All of our technicians and electrical experts, located in the Montreal area, have years of experience in the industry, and conform to all industry standards to guarantee the best possible results. Without proper installation and maintenance by a licensed electrician, surge protectors can become ineffective, which is not only dangerous, but can result in potential damages.
There are various circumstances that can cause power surges, therefore it is best to prepare your Montreal home or business to be protected against the potential damages of electrical surges. The most common causes of electrical surges are:
The human body’s first line of defense against injury is the skin. Likewise, a home requires the same need for protection against sudden traumas. To protect against the dangerous repercussions of a large electrical power surge, the best way to defend your home is by hiring a professional to install a surge suppression device at the main service panel of your home. A whole home surge protector acts as the first point of impact during a power surge, and stops the high levels of electricity before it can cause damage.
Point-of-use surge protectors are only beneficial in addition to a whole home surge protector that has been installed at the service entrance of a home, as alone they will not protect you against large electrical surges. Also it is important to understand that some surges can destroy a point-of-use suppressor’s effectiveness, and not all of these devices indicate when they are no longer effective. If you are considering buying multiple point-of-use devices for your Montreal area home or business, there are some other points you may want to keep in mind.
