Surge Protector Installation Service Locations
Today, we use more electrical appliances than ever. You may have several appliances plugged into one outlet at the same time. When you plug in too many electrical appliances at once, your power supply may surge causing a circuit breaker to flip or even start a fire. If you have many appliances that you need to be plugged in all at once, it may be useful to install a surge protector solution. Our solutions allow multiple appliances to be plugged in at once with a much lower risk of any danger. If you are located in North Carolina, contact Coastal Home Services for a surge protection along with many other electrical services. Although we serve our customers all along eastern NC, here are the locations which we frequent the most.

What Does A Surge Protector Do?
A surge protector does exactly what the term describes. It protects your powered appliances from being damaged when an electrical surge occurs. There are several things that can cause a power surge to affect your home. A power surge occurs when the electrical current running through your power source has a higher voltage than necessary causing anything connected to the source to overload. This can cause electronics to burn out or even catch fire in extreme situations.
A surge protector will recognize when a power surge is happening and redirect the surge of electricity into a ground wire. This allows you to be able to safely plug in multiple items without having to worry about losing them due to a power surge. A surge protector is a form of insurance for your electrical appliances and we strongly recommend that you take advantage of these devices.
What Causes A Power Surge?
There are many things that can cause a circuit to experience a power surge. Some of the most common reasons that a power surge occurs include:
Electrical Overload – Too much power is being drawn from one circuit at a single moment
Lightning Strike – A direct strike to power lines can cause a power surge in your home
Power Outage Restoration – When the power is restored after a large power outage, the surge in power can cause damage
