Surge Protection

Fast & Friendly Service with a Smile for All

Protecting Homes from Electrical Hazards Since 1969

Have you ever stopped to think about just how many computers you have in your home? In addition to your actual computer or laptop, many of your appliances can also be considered computers, especially if they’re smart devices. This means that your washing machine and dryer, refrigerator, and stove all require a great deal of electricity in order to work. While you may have tons of power strips throughout your home to power your televisions, computers, internet router, and various other electronics, not every device is compatible with these strips. Additionally, these power strips are still susceptible to power surges that can significantly damage your devices.

Fortunately, our team at Clinton Electric Company offers the perfect solution. Our experienced electricians can install whole-home surge protection in Baltimore. Before beginning any work, we will always provide you with an upfront, honest quote. Additionally, we are so confident in the quality of our work that we offer 100% satisfaction guarantees.

Why You Should Invest in Whole-Home Surge Protection in Baltimore

Whenever you’re dealing with electricity, it’s important to ensure that your system is up to code. Today, the code requires either Type 1 or Type 2 surge protection for all single, two, and multi-family residences. The surge protection equipment must be located within the property’s electrical panel or adjacent to it. This code change was mandated in order to safeguard necessary safety-related devices, such as GFCI outlets, smoke alarms, and heat detectors.

Whole-home surge protection works by monitoring the electrical current supplied by your electric company. Should any over-voltages occur, it will protect your devices by preventing the excess current from reaching them.

Common Causes of Power Surges

Because we rely so heavily on our devices these days, our homes have become a tangled web of power strips and extension cords. Under normal conditions, the power from the electric company flows in a steady current to your electrical panel, and from there is dispersed to your outlets. A steady current is safe and relatively easy to monitor. However, any time there is a spike in the current, also known as a power surge, it can pose serious threats to your home, including fire and electrocution. Some of the common causes of power surges include:

Power Outages

Typically, we don’t power up all of our appliances or devices at once. However, after a power outage, the electrical current must provide power to all of your devices at once. Because of this increased demand on your system, it could lead to significant damage.

High-Powered Electrical Devices

Some of your devices require more electricity than others. Examples of these include your refrigerator, your air conditioner, or even a space heater. Sometimes, powering such devices on can cause a surge due to their higher electrical demand.


While your electrical system is designed to channel electricity from your utility company to the devices in your home, it can only handle so much. Lightning contains an extremely powerful electrical current, and when it strikes a powerline close to your home, your electrical system doesn’t know what to do with the high current other than accept it. Unfortunately, the resulting surge can cause significant damage to your appliances, such as computers and monitors.

Tripped Circuit Breakers or Faulty Wiring

If you’re currently dealing with faulty electrical components, such as wiring, it will leave you more prone to experiencing power surges. Similarly, any short circuiting can lead to a power surge.

Spectacular Service

The people over at Clinton Electric really do a wonderful job of keeping their customers happy. I had them come by to set something up for me and the guy they sent, Chris I believe his name was, was just an absolute gem. He did a great job with installing what I needed done, and when I had an issue a couple weeks later he was right back out to my home to fix it. These guys are just spectacular and Chris just does such a wonderful job, I would definitely recommend these guys to anyone and everyone!

Amazing to Work With

Clinton Electric Co. were amazing to work with. I used their services twice because I had to have lights and extensions installed in my home. They were very good when I called; extremely prompt, their scheduling was prompt. The first time I had issues and they couldn't find the problem, but the service person who came went above and beyond and didn't stop his work until he found it, even though I told him it was okay - this was on Christmas Day exactly! I asked for him the second time around because he was so good. All in all excellent service and communication, these guys really care about the work that they do and the quality of their service is top notch. I would recommend them to anyone who needs a reliable electrician.

Really Great Prices

I recently had the folks over at Clinton Electric come over to fix some stuff for me and I am very happy with the results. They were really easy to schedule an appointment with which was a big relief for me. I really appreciated that they called prior to coming to give me a heads up of when they were coming and it was within the time slot I was assigned so that was good. When they came they did a really great job and now my electrical problems are no more! Their prices are really great and I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is in need of a high quality electrician!
