Many people have had power surges in their homes, and may not have even known it. At electrician Tulsa when we do a service call to someone’s home or business, we are surprised with how little knowledge the overall general public has concerning the safety of electricity, especially trying to contain your electrical circuit so it does not have a power surge. Power surges when there is increase energy within an electrical circuit. It can cause Appliance failure, electrical shock, or even in extreme cases electrical fire.
The best way to protect yourself from a power surge is to get a UPS surge protector strip. And UPS protect surge protector is a power strip that will protect your appliances and devices when there is a power surge so that they will not be ruined. It also protects from sags surges and lightning strikes. Do not buy an unprotected powerstrip because they do nothing to protect your expensive and important equipment from Power surges.
Another saying about power surges, is that they can actually be a source of an increase in your electricity bill. When any of your electrical products have a surge or an increase in voltage it affects the quality of the power and it can short out batteries or even short out one of your large appliances if the electric jolt is strong enough and travels to your product. If you continually have these power surges it will also cause your electrical bill to be higher than normal because you are having frequently higher number of electrical volts used within the circuit even if you aren’t increasing the use of your appliances or other devices.
