Surge Protection Services in Stamford, Norwalk, Danbury, Hamden, New Haven, Hartford

If you’ve ever wondered whether power strips really work, or what happens to your major appliances and other equipment when a surge affects your home, then you might be interested to learn more about whole house surge protection. In an age dominated by electronic technology, we rely more and more on electrical powered devices such as computers, tablets, phones, HDTVs and other electrical devices to keep our lives organized and to keep us entertained. But power surges can ruin the sensitive electronic components inside these devices, and making sure that your home is properly protected is the primary goal of our surge protection service in Hartford, Stamford, Norwalk, Danbury, Hamden, New Haven, Bridgeport, Wilton, Newtown, Madison, Darien, Weston, New Canaan, and surrounding CT.

At Harrington Electric, we take pride in the ability of our technicians to provide excellent solutions to various electrical issues in the home. Surges occur in your home not only when lightning strikes, but also when you overload a circuit or use a high–wattage device in one area of the home. While a circuit breaker is there to protect the system from overloading, it does not protect electronics and other powered devices that can be negatively affected. Whole house surge protection devices are your best course of action. We offer high quality whole house surge protectors that are integrated directly at the electrical panel. Our electricians are certified and our prices are right. We have been doing this for over 15 years, and we can make sure that you’re satisfied with our customer service excellence. Call now to schedule service.

The surge protection experts at Harrington Electric offer quality electrical services throughout the New Haven and Fairfield County area.

Portable vs. Whole House Surge Protection

There are two major disadvantages to portable surge protectors. First, they have very limited coverage. Even if you pepper your home with a variety of power strips, this does not affect major appliances such as your water heater or your HVAC system. Second, they do not have anything near the protective capacity (often rated in joules) of a whole house surge protection device. For comprehensive and powerful surge protection, you need to consider a whole house model.

Benefits of Surge Protection in Connecticut

Making sure that your entire electrical system is well protected is incredibly important. If you were to add up the cost of replacing your major appliances and electronic equipment, we’re willing to bet the number would surprise you. If it’s lightning protection you’re after, then we also offer that service, but whole house surge protection is principally about reducing the negative impact of micro surges that occur throughout your home every day. Over time, these can take a toll on the sensitive electronic components in your home, particularly your stereo, HDTV and computers. It also gives you the peace of mind knowing that your home has a greater level of surge protection.

Professional Surge Protection Installation and Service

At Harrington Electric, we make sure that our Monroe, New Fairfield, West Hartford, Simsbury, Meriden, Manchester, Milford, CT customers have everything they need when it comes to surge protection. If you’re in the market or just plain curious about whole house surge protection, we can sit down with you and discuss your options. If you already have a surge protection device, but have reason to believe that it’s no longer functioning as it once did or the way it should, then we can help with that, too. Simply pick up the phone and dial our number. Our friendly staff members will be able to set up a convenient time so that one of our certified electricians can address your concerns.
