Beat the Speed of Light with Integra Electrical

Humans naturally love power. From the very beginning of our existence, both men and women have put everything on the line in a quest for ultimate control and power.  But in reality, power isn’t always such a great thing. This applies not only to human nature, but also to your home’s electric. A power surge in your home’s electric system can be stopped by installing surge protection with Integra Electrical.

What Are Power Surges, Exactly?

Because electricity typically flows in a steady current, we are able to use our favorite appliances each day without much apprehension.

Why Do Power Surges Happen?

Though they appear sporadic and unpredictable, there are explanations behind power surges.

The most common causes include:

  • Lightning. If lightning strikes near a power line, it can almost instantly send an intense surge through your electrical system. Suddenly, millions of volts are traveling through your wires and appliances. Unfortunately, there is no surge protector on the market that can protect against the power of lightning. That’s why, during storms, it’s important to unplug appliances and avoid using them until the lightning subsides.
  • High-powered electrical appliances. Certain appliances in your home, such as refrigerators and furnaces, have very high power demands. In addition, they contain components that are constantly turning on and off, such as a furnace motor turning on and off in response to your home’s temperature. When these sudden changes in electrical current take place, it upsets the steady flow of electricity and can lead to a power surge. Though these surges do not match the power of lightning surges, they can still be significant enough to damage your appliances, and even cause electrical fires.
