Whole-Home Surge Protector Installation in MD & DC
Electricity flows through your home all the time to power your many devices and appliances. Issues can arise if the voltage suddenly jumps — also known as a power surge. Installing a whole-home surge protector can help you avoid an outage or serious hazards when a power surge hits.
Michael Bonsby HVAC, Plumbing & Electrical can install a surge protector that regulates power surges as they come into your home. This will help ensure that blasts of electricity don’t hit your systems, causing overload, premature aging, or even a fire.
What Causes a Power Surge & How Does a Surge Protector Help?
Many things can cause a power surge that pushes extra electricity through your electrical panel. A few of the most common instances include:
- Power outages: When the power goes out, electricity stops flowing into the home. However, when it comes back on, a blast of energy can be sent through the system.
- Lighting strikes: If lighting hits an electrical wire or substation nearby, a surge of power could be sent through to every home in the area.
- Indoor surges: Power surges all the time throughout the home. Whenever a major appliance turns on or off, it can send a wave of power through to other outlets, switches, and systems.
Just like a power strip helps control the flow of electricity to small electronics, a whole-home surge protector does the same thing on a much larger scale for the entire home. These systems catch high currents or voltages and push them to a ground wire to absorb the shock.
Benefits of Whole-Home Surge Protectors
There are many good reasons to install a whole-home surge protector. These systems offer a variety of benefits, including:
- Extra safety for your home

Do You Need a Surge Protector for Your Home Generator?
Surge protectors and home generators are becoming increasingly popular for homeowners today. Both are very useful and should be installed together. It’s important to know that you really do need a surge protector for a home generator.
When a generator turns on during an outage, it will send a blast of energy into the home’s electrical system. Without a proper surge protector in place, this can damage your appliances, electronics, and wiring. With a surge protector, the energy will flow smoothly through the system and avoid causing damage.
Add a surge protector if you have a home generator. Call 301-990-7970 today to learn more about generator and surge protector services from Michael Bonsby.
