Surge Protection

We Provide Surge Protection in San Antonio, TX, and the Surrounding Areas

Most power surges will reduce the lifespan of your appliances and electronics. In worst cases scenarios, they can cause electrical fires. Thankfully, Hunter Service Group offers state-of-the-art surge protection in San Antonio, TX, and nearby areas to work as your home’s first line of defense against high-voltage electrical surges.

Rarely do households notice that they have faced a power surge. Most people go about their daily routines without thinking about it, without ever realizing that their homes experience about 20 power surges daily. These power surges are not the common, entire-home-shuts-down type. Instead, they are power fluctuations only experienced by your appliances. To better prevent these issues, we offer surge protection in these areas:

Whole House Surge Protectors

Whole-house surge protectors are designed to protect your home against destructive and costly transient surges that pass through your electricity supply. However, they don’t protect from power surges formed internally in your home when motors, such as refrigerators and hair dryers, turn on and off.

Surge protectors not only protect your home from destructive surges and the need for frequent electrical repair services but can also qualify you for affordable insurance rates and eventually pay for themselves. In addition, these devices help prevent electrical fires, giving you the peace of mind that comes with learning that your home is safe.

They safeguard your devices so you can avoid loss from:

  • Faulty wiring
  • Major appliance disruptions
  • Lightning
  • Malfunctioning utilities

What to Expect When We Are Installing a Surge Protector

Whole-home protectors are installed at the meter or electric panel. Our professional electricians begin the surge protector installation process by switching off the main power to make sure no power is flowing in your home. Next, we fix the surge protector and connect the wires. Finally, we reassemble the electrical panel and perform a test to check that everything works correctly and your home is safe.

Surge Protection FAQs

Will a Surge Protector Safeguard Everything in My Home?

Yes. A whole-house surge protector can defend your home from power surges coming off the grid.

Will a Surge Protector Help Me Reduce My Energy Bills?

No. A whole-surge protector isn’t an energy-saving device; it’s a gatekeeper. It’s designed only to block power surges.

Can I Install It Myself?

Unless you’re a professional electrician, you should hire a skilled electrical contractor to handle the installation. Your home’s electrical wiring can be confusing, poorly installed, or have home defects that could present a danger to DIY enthusiasts. Additionally, without correct grounding, your surge protector will not work. For the safety of your home, family, and appliances, consult our team for expert surge protector installation.

Which Electronics Are More Susceptible to Power Surges?

Many modern electronic devices are prone to power surges. Nonetheless, appliances and electronics with microprocessors are mainly vulnerable to power surges. Since microprocessors only work correctly with the correct voltage, power surges can quickly damage these delicate devices, affecting everything from the HVAC system to kitchen appliances.

Should I Use My Existing Plugin Surge Protectors?

Yes. We recommend that you keep any power strips or point-of-use surge protectors that you already have behind your computer, TV, and other fragile equipment as added protection.
