Bad weather like heavy snow, ice storms, or thunderstorms are quite common in Michigan, often leading to power outages. Eventually, when the power is restored, it can cause a surge of power to any devices plugged into your home’s power outlets.

What Can Cause Unexpected Power Surges in My Home?

A power surge is an instantaneous spike in the voltage or current of your home’s electrical system, and it can happen for several reasons:

  • Lightning strikes: A nearby lightning strike can induce a high voltage in your home’s electrical system. 
  • Power outages: Whether caused by bad weather, accidents, or maintenance issues, a power outage can cause a surge when power is restored.
  • Internal surges: The most common causes of power surges happen in your home. A surge can happen when a large appliance like an AC, refrigerator, or circular saw starts up, or it can be due to electrical problems like loose wiring, faulty breakers, or other damage.

How Do Whole-Home Surge Protectors Work?

Whole-home surge protectors are installed in the main electrical panel for your home. They work by:

  • Monitoring the incoming power
  • Detecting dangerously high currents or voltages
  • Shunting the extra power to the ground wire

The ground connection can safely absorb this extra power, protecting your electronics and appliances. Whole-home surge protectors have a limited amount of power they can divert over their lifetime, measured in joules, and when they reach this limit, they’ll need to be replaced.

Most surge protectors have a light that indicates when it’s working properly, and they can last about five years.

Why Is a Whole-Home Surge Protector Important in Michigan?

In addition to their extreme weather, cities like Grand Rapids and Lansing have plenty of older homes with electrical systems that may have hidden problems or be undersized for modern electrical needs. A whole-home surge protector helps intercept any surges in your home’s electrical system that could damage costly appliances and electronics.

Many devices are vulnerable to surge damage, including:

  • Computers
  • Set-top cable boxes
  • Modems
