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:
High-Powered Electrical Devices
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.
