A surge suppressor, commonly referred to as a surge protector, is a tool designed to protect electrical equipment from sudden increases in voltage. The suppressor works by limiting the voltage allotted to an electrical device, by grounding any voltage beyond the appropriate threshold.
Suppressors are often used in industrial settings with devices installed in communication systems, power distribution panels and process control systems. Smaller versions of suppressors are used in homes to protect household appliances from voltage hazards. These types of suppressors are different from protecting plug strips that are commonly used for plugging multiple electronics into the same area.
Benefits of Transient Voltage Surge Suppressors
Transient voltage, referred to as a “power surge,” is an increase in voltage above the safely determined level. The standard voltage is 120 volts in residential and commercial buildings in the United States. If the voltage exceeds this amount, it may cause serious damage to any electrical devices powered by the outlets experiencing a surge.
Here at Piper Electric Co., Inc., we are excited to offer free electrical service estimates to any potential customers. We know that each situation is unique and that charging flat rate pricing for our services could end up costing clients far more than what’s in their budget. Whether customers need residential services or electrical services and repairs in the commercial industry, we want to provide it to customers at the best rate possible.
Other electrical companies charge for their estimates and then bill customers for a flat rate depending on what services they need. We don’t think that’s the right way to run our company. For more than 30 years, we have prided ourselves on offering a personal, tailored service that suits the needs of each and every customer. For example, one client may only need to install cable television wiring while another customer will need a home inspection and TVSS surge suppression, while someone else may need emergency electrical services for their home or business. A flat rate estimate for these circumstances would be unfair to all three customers.
