Whole-Home vs. Outlet Surge Protection

While many are familiar with standard outlet surge protectors, whole-home surge protection may not be as widely known. As a homeowner, knowing the difference between the two can help you better protect your house from a preventable hazard.

Outlet surge protectors (or power strip surge protectors) are designed to protect the devices or appliances plugged into them. They typically feature multiple outlets and provide surge suppression for the devices connected to those outlets (like computers, televisions, gaming consoles, etc.).

A whole home surge protection is a comprehensive system installed at your home's electrical panel or meter by a licensed electrician. It offers protection for ALL the electrical circuits and devices within your home. Whole home surge protectors are designed to mitigate power surges that may originate from external sources, such as lightning strikes or utility grid fluctuations. They provide a more robust defense against surges, covering a broader range of electrical equipment, including appliances, HVAC systems, lighting fixtures, and more.

Power surges can vary in intensity and duration – some may be minor and go unnoticed, while others can be severe and cause immediate damage to electronics. Proper surge protection measures are the best way to protect your electrical equipment from potential harm.

What Causes a Power Surge?

Various factors, both internal and external, can cause power surges. Some of the most common include:
  • Lightning Strikes: One of the most powerful and destructive causes of power surges is lightning. When lightning strikes near power lines or utility equipment, it can induce a surge of electricity that can travel through the electrical grid and reach homes or buildings.
  • Electrical Grid Issues: Problems within the electrical grid, such as faults in power lines, transformer malfunctions, or switching operations, can generate power surges. These surges can propagate through the grid and affect the electrical supply to homes and businesses.
  • Faulty Wiring or Grounding: Poorly installed or outdated electrical wiring, improper grounding, or inadequate electrical infrastructure within a building can lead to power surges. These internal issues can cause voltage fluctuations or sudden increases in electrical current, resulting in surges affecting connected devices.
  • Power Outages: A power surge can occur when the power supply is disrupted and restored. This is particularly true when power is restored after an outage, as the sudden surge of electricity can temporarily exceed normal levels.
  • High-Powered Electrical Devices: The operation of large electrical appliances or equipment, such as air conditioners, refrigerators, elevators, or industrial machinery, can cause electrical disturbances within the building's electrical system. These devices may draw significant power, leading to voltage fluctuations and potential surges.
