Whole Home Surge Protection

Whole Home Surge Protection

All of our homes possess many electronics, from our phones to our washing machines. What would you do if, all of a sudden, one day all of these devices had to be replaced? At the same time? It’s not a situation that most would be prepared for. You may think that electrical power strips are protecting you from such power surges, but surprisingly, these do not do much in the event of a severe power surge. Instead of relying on these small products for protection, consider having your an electrician install a whole home surge protector.

Though we often think of serious power surges, throughout the course of a year, small, unnoticeable surges happen all the time. These cause damage over time, and can also be controlled by installing a whole home surge protector. The whole house surge protectors can be installed at the utility meter or the breaker box. You can never go wrong by installing them in both areas. Surge protectors act as a pressure relief valve, immediately diverting excess energy to the ground. The investment in this type of surge protection is worth not having to replace thousands of dollars’ worth of appliances and electronics later. John's Electric can advise you on the best solution for your home.

Please contact John's Electric at (205) 426-0583 or use our online form to a request an appointment to see how our expert residential electricians can help you with whole house surge protection!

Is aluminum wire a fire hazard and what should I do about it?

Monday, March 11, 2019

From the mid-'60s to the early '70s, electricians in many new or remodeled homes installed aluminum wiring to feed branch circuits from the main panel to outlets and lighting fixtures.  What was later discovered is that while continuous runs of aluminum wire didn't present problems, when those wires were connected to light switches, outlets and other wires in junction boxes, the connections deteriorated and became fire hazards.

Mr. Teele arrived quickly, diagnosed our outage problem and fixed it that same afternoon. We have an older electrical system that many other electricians simply won't work with. But Mr. Teele confidently made repairs and even called to check on us the next day to ensure all was working well.
