Surges, also known as transient surges or spikes, are momentary increases in ordinary household voltage. They occur over 2,000 times a year in the average home. Surges can be generated externally and internally. Lightning storms, accidents, and utility power station switching can generate significant transient events. Home appliances such as furnaces, air conditioners, washers, and dryers can also generate surges that travel back to the breaker panel and throughout your home.

Protect your home and appliances with whole house surge protection. For proper protection against surges, your home needs a protector that is wired into your electrical panel. The professional technicians at Ott Electrical can easily install whole house surge protection.
