Whole Home Surge Protection

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.

"Ernie & Mike did a superb job on my new furnace and A/C installation. Despite having more than a day’s work to do, they came in and stayed until the job was done. They were organized, efficient, and protected the rest of the house well. Got both furnace and A/C installed the same day. Ernie was courteous, informative, and clearly knew his job better than anyone I’ve encountered before. The units look so good guests now get The Tour of our new system. Apollo is clearly not a fly-by-night company. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new furnace and/or A/C."

"I called Apollo because of a water leak I thought I had in our upstairs shower going into the kitchen. Robbie came and assured me everything was fine & looked at all the other plumbing. He ended up changing a few pipes for our washer & clearing a drain. He was very nice & knowledgeable with all my questions. I ended up signing up for the care plan & was very happy with my service."
- Cassandra B.
"The team at Apollo exceeded my expectations. As a business owner, my attention to the details and commitment to providing excellent service is high. From the sales rep. to the installation team, everyone’s performance was outstanding. For example, the installation team went to great lengths to protect our floors, placing floor runners and across the wood floors and up the stairs. They even were spot washing walls upon their departure. I highly recommend this company."

"We scheduled an estimate AND a tune-up. We knew something was wrong with our furnace, but hoped we could make it through the rest of the season. Upon telling Bill what our furnace was doing, he warned us immediately what the possible outcome was going to be; a cracked heat exchanger. He watched the flames roll backward, tested carbon monoxide levels, which were so high they meter’s last reading was 5,600 before saying “high”. He immediately shut it down, tagged it, and explained that with levels that high and children in our home he wanted off right away. He continued his inspection and showed us via a camera that not only was it cracked in multiple places, but had holes all over it. He gave us a few options for repairing it; his knowledge as well as genuine concern was beneficial and refreshing. Luckily we also scheduled an estimator, Micah, to come too and we were able to get costs between repairing and replacing (with several options). We decided to replace with a much higher efficiency furnace and one sized properly to our home. Hands down, not only did they both provide us great service and knowledge, but without sounding dramatic, they may have saved our lives. This was our first time calling Apollo, but it won’t be our last."

"Apollo is an excellent company. I always receive great service. Alex A. was professional and friendly. He kept me informed during the process of checking my furnace and heat pump to make sure they were working properly. The company makes sure you are notified who is coming and when they are on the way. All my interactions with the company have been wonderful."
