Harmful Surges Can Endanger Your Orlando Home!

Florida is the lightning capital of the United States. Furthermore, Central Florida residents and business owners share the distinct privilege of being right in the heart of “Lightning Alley.” What does that mean for property owners in communities like College Park, Windermere and Lake Mary? Electrical current from a lightning strike can run through the wires in your home or business, causing power surges that can damage appliances like T.V.s and computers.

There are many ways that a power surge can infiltrate your electrical system. Whether caused from within (through appliance use) or from an outside source (like lightning or a downed power line), they can have a huge impact on your home. Through constant exposure to surges, your valuable electronics and appliances can become corrupted over time. Surge protection devices protect against power surges generated from any source, so you can rest easy.

What Is a Power Surge?

A power surge is a wave of intense power running through your circuits and into every device or appliance you have plugged in at the time. Several things outside of your control can cause power surges. 

A tree limb might fall on nearby power lines. A car accident involving a nearby power line might occur. Lightning strikes can cause especially dangerous power surges. However, most power surges are caused by outdated electrical systems or faulty appliances inside the home.

How Does a Power Surge Affect My Home?

A power surge can ruin any electronic device or appliance plugged in when the power surge strikes your home. If you’re lucky, the surge caused no significant damage. Much of the time, damage may not be noticeable at first. 

Over time, you might notice certain devices or appliances behaving strangely. Computer monitors and TVs might flicker or fail to power on. Toasters might not heat up. The buttons on your microwave might not work. In worse cases, electronics might fail immediately after a power surge.

If you’re not sure how to identify a power surge, there are some signs you can look out for. Flashing or reset clocks on devices tend to hint at a recent power surge. You might detect a burning smell near your outlets or power strips, as well. 

What Is a Whole House Surge Protector?

You might be familiar with surge protector power strips. A whole house surge protector is like that, but for your entire home instead of just one outlet. A-Lumination Electric will install a lightning surge protection device in your electrical panel, which can block a power surge before it races through your home’s wiring.
