Bad Weather PSA: How Surge Protectors Can Help

While our side of the Gulf is known for being a seasonal paradise, we can get some of the worst thunderstorms imaginable. These storms quickly lead to power outages, power surges, and other electrical woes that can leave our customers feeling defeated.

Well, the good news is that there are some incredible technological advancements that can keep your home in good shape even when the storm of the century rolls in, protecting your home appliances and devices from dangerous power surges that would otherwise cause thousands of dollars in damage and even potentially start a fire.

These improvements and upgrades can be made easily by calling us for surge protectors in Tampa Bay. So when it comes to power surge protection–I’m your guy!

Our Dependence on Devices

One of the main reasons why surge protectors and outlet replacements are becoming so important and widely discussed is due to our dependence on devices. From computers to TVs, smart devices, and LED lighting systems, we depend a lot on electrical appliances.

Think about how different life was 30 years ago. It could be normal to go a day or so only using two or three electrical appliances and some lights. Now, we use dozens of electrical systems to live our lives, and it shows! We have access to TV shows, movies, music, friends, and the internet at our fingertips when we stay connected.

So, make sure your devices stay protected by upgrading your electrical system when it’s required.

Surge Protection

Let’s start with surge protection.

When a thunderstorm hits, sometimes lightning can strike power lines and cause a huge surge of electricity to flow through your house. This can be so powerful that it destroys electrical components, starts fires, and generally is a risk for anything that’s plugged in.

However, surge protectors send that power into the ground where it dissipates. Whole house surge protectors, like the ones we install, protect every outlet in your home so you don’t have to worry about your devices.

We are also offering a promotion for owners of multiple properties–two surge protectors for the price of one! Take advantage of this through the end of July.

Keep Our Number Handy

With storms and heatwaves becoming a real problem for people in our area, it’s only fair that we be honest with you–we don’t know what’s going to happen this summer. We could have the worst storm we’ve seen in decades, or we could have a dry spell that turns into an extended heatwave. The weather can be unpredictable, and there’s nothing that your local meteorologist or HVAC technician can do about that.

What we can do is be there for you when you need it. As long as you’ve got our number handy (or access to our website), you can schedule service promptly and get the best technician on the job. When it comes to AC or electrical work that you need done, I’m your guy!
