Surge Protection Services in Northern Virginia

The average Northern Virginia home experiences many small power surges that span the entire house. Some of these surges enter through lightning, others from changes in your local power grid. But 80 percent of these internal spikes in voltage are triggered because of electrical issues in your home and can silently cause long-term damages to your electrical components and devices. Learn how to prevent power surges and get the surge protection services you need to keep your home and belongings safe with the knowledge and expertise of C.B. Lucas. Our team of licensed professional electricians can explain your surge protection options and inspect your home for current vulnerabilities.

The Benefits of Whole-Home Surge Protection 

Both large and small, power surges increase voltage above an appliance’s standard operating voltage, producing an arc of electrical current inside the appliance. This arc creates heat which harms electric circuit boards and components. When not addressed, these consistent, accumulated heat damages shorten the lifespan of your appliances and electronic devices. 

The benefits of whole-home surge protection shouldn’t be overlooked. Consider the following ways whole-home surge protection in Northern Virginia works to your advantage by:

  • Extend the lifespan of your electronics. Slow and immediate damages to your home’s electrical devices and appliances from small and large surges can be prevented with surge protection devices. 
  • Reduce your risk of electrical fires. Spikes in voltage can make electrical wires overheat. In some instances, the wire sheathing can melt, or the wires can spark, creating a fire hazard. 
  • Prevent costly repairs. Surge protection reduces the need for surge-related rewiring, outlet replacement, or appliance replacement.

Common Signs that Your Home Needs Surge Protection

Remember, storms aren’t the only source of power surges to your home. The electronic circuitry of your home could currently be causing damages. Be on the lookout for the following signs that indicate you need surge protection today: 

  • Tarnished or non-functioning outlets. Outlets that looked burned or discolored indicate overheating behind the wall. Act immediately if you notice this sign of electrical malfunctioning. You are at risk for an electrical fire. 
  • Circuit breakers that consistently trip. Power surges are common reasons a circuit breaker will trip. Contact a member of our C.B. Lucas team to inspect your system.
  • Flickering lights. Lights that flicker or dim after a large appliance powers on or off indicate a power surge. This response may seem small, but significant damages are occurring.

Don’t delay when you notice signs of power surges in your home. Keep your home and property safe by contacting C.B. Lucas at (703) 590-3700 to set up a surge protection installation. 

What to Expect with Surge Protection System Installation

The highly-trained electricians at C.B. Lucas have the tools and experience needed to fit your home with a surge protection system equipped to handle your home’s needs. A surge protection installation can be accomplished in one home visit with minimal disruption to your daily rhythm. Point-of-use protection devices (SPDs) will be combined with a proper grounding system to safeguard your electrical appliances and devices from electrical surges. 

Special electrical outlets also offer surge protection and can be swapped for your current outlets in locations that would be useful. Service entrance surge protection devices protect your entire electrical system. These devices reduce the power surge to an appropriate level before it reaches the point-of-use protection device.
