Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky Whole-Home Surge Protection Services
Protect your entire home from power surges
Chances are you’ve graduated from basic surge protection strips. When installed at the main service panel in your home, your electrical system, electronics, and appliances are protected from internal and external power surges.
Many newer appliances, such as televisions, washers, dryers, dishwashers, microwaves, security systems, and more, operate using high-tech circuit boards and would be expensive and inconvenient to repair or replace. Whole-home surge protection is essentially a secondary home insurance policy as it insulates expensive electronics and appliances from unexpected damages.
Surges can come from multiple sources and are not limited to external events such as thunderstorm activity. Surge protection also contributes to home safety and carries a limited warranty.
Enjoy a Home Office?
Beyond usual home appliances and electronics, you may especially benefit from whole-home surge protection if you maintain a home office. Consider the safety of your computer, monitor, laptops, tablets, phone chargers, and other devices you may have plugged in for your occupation. Whole-home surge protection can help prevent the repair or replacement of these home office essentials.

Surge Protection FAQs
Are there any items in my home that cannot go on a surge protector?
High power capacity appliances, such as a toaster oven or microwave, should never be plugged into a power strip style surge protector. Instead, these must be plugged directly into the wall. Similarly, space heaters cannot be plugged into a surge protector.
Do whole-house surge protectors really work?
Yes, a whole-house surge protector provides instant protection against surges that may enter home circuits, such as if lighting hits the line or home. This protects every electrical item in your home, not just items plugged directly into a surge protector.
What surge protector do I need?
To choose the right surge protector, consider asking an electrician for advice. Look for something that is at least 600 joules that has a clamping voltage of around 400 volts. The clamping voltage tells the surge protector when it needs to go to work, so you want this low enough to provide adequate protection. Finally, evaluate whether you want a whole-house surge protector or one that works like a power strip.
