POWER SURGE PROTECTION AND LIGHTNING PROTECTION VS OUTLET POWER BARS

WHY DO I NEED A SURGE PROTECTOR?

Calgary and the Foothills see our fair share of thunderstorms, and those storms include lightning. Lightning, along with power surges in general, can overload your electrical system causing damage to wiring, appliances and expensive electronics. At Gentlemen Electric, we can install whole-home surge protection and lightning arrestors in your home or business to give you piece of mind and save you money.

WHAT CAUSES A POWER SURGE?

Lightning is not the only cause of a power surge. Electricity does not flow evenly throughout the day. Every time a fridge, heater, blow dryer or any other appliance comes on, you are creating a small surge. The overall electrical grid also has its own surges, which you may see as lights flickering. There is no way to externally prevent a surge, but we can help you mitigate the effect on your electronics. Power surges are a major contributor to breaking down the microchips in equipment, causing the need to replace or repair items more frequently than necessary.

POWER BARS VS. WHOLE-HOME SURGE PROTECTION

Gentlemen Electric installs surge protectors at the main electrical panel to protect the whole system. Simple power bars with 'surge protection' are often not efficient enough to protect what they are powering.  They are also rarely utilized for washers, dryers, ranges and refrigerators, likely a home’s most expensive electronics. Gentlemen Electric installs surge protectors at the main electrical panel to stop surges from reaching the rest of your home, protecting the whole system.

WHOLE HOME SURGE PROTECTION AND COMMERCIAL SURGE PROTECTION OPTIONS

Gentlemen Electric offers Whole Home Surge Protection and Commercial Surge Protection. By installing the protector right at your electrical panel, you are protecting your electrical system from damage. We install only the highest quality protectors and are an Authorized Dealer and Installer of CleanVolt Surge Protectors.
