Home Surge Protection

Arkansas is no stranger to storms. Homeowners know that during a thunder storm, their power system and electric grid aren’t always reliable. If a power surge occurs, home appliances or operating systems can be damaged—which can be both costly and dangerous to you and your family. Thankfully, you can protect your home and your family with residential house surge protection.

Contact CJ’s Electric today to discuss options for house surge protection. Our professional electricians will come to your home and provide a free in-home consultation to discover your needs and provide a free quote.

WHAT CAUSES POWER SURGES?

Natural events, like lightning and thunderstorms, can be one cause of residential power surges. When lighting strikes near a power line, it can cause a drastic voltage spike—resulting in a power surge in connected homes (and, potentially, major damage to your electronics thanks to short circuiting or burning).

Faulty wiring, wire crossovers, or events that occur within your household can also cause residential power surges. Even more commonly, AC motors, refrigeration motors, dishwasher motors, or washer and dryer motors may cause a residential power surge.

When it comes to electrical surges, if you don’t take measures to keep your home safe, anything that requires a lot of power to operate can be a culprit.

WHY DO I NEED RESIDENTIAL SURGE PROTECTION?

By pushing voltage towards the ground, a surge protector keeps your home, your electronics, and your family safe from incoming surges and conduction that can be caused from outdoor moisture. Not only will a residential surge protector save you from having to make costly repairs or replace expensive equipment (such as your AC) but it will also prevent a great deal of wear and tear on your appliances and electronics.

Electrical surges can also be dangerous, and if you’ve ever witnessed one, you know that a power surge usually comes with a bit of a boom and a flash of light. If you’re standing too close when a surge happens, you risk being burned or even electrocuted.

I had an issue where my new monitor would reboot every time the dryer kicked on. I'd tossed it around some internet forums and the consensus was something weird was going on and an electrician would need to come out and run all kinds of tests to track it down. I called Chris, he said, "Sounds like a loose ground wire," he came out, tightened some screws in the circuit breaker panel, and problem solved. So Chris 1, Internet 0. Also worked me in the day I called, and my dog loved him to boot. I will definitely call him again the next time I have a problem.

Chris is always top of the mark. Professional and on time Chris always does a great job. Have used his services in my home as will as referring him to friends and family. He did not try and charge me to do an "estimate" unlike other companies.

Awesome! Extremely knowledgeable, proficient, informative, and efficient. Chris wired our new house and was always available for questions. He showed us ways we could save money from him and through electrical bills. He only charged us for what he did and very up front about everything. Chris can be opinionated, but aren't all contractors? However, if I disagreed with his expertise he would honor our request. He lives for the Lord. We had many conversations around the Almighty. Chris does a great job spreading the Gospel. Most builders/contractors/servicemen can have a foul mouth or listen to inappropriate music on the job-site. Chris Jones only listens to Christian music and spiritual sermons AND he never uses foul language. I highly recommend Chris Jones for any electrical job.
