Surge Protection

A surge protector is a device designed to protect your electrical foundation from undesired electrical spikes (or surges).

Not too long ago, we were able to assist customers who unfortunately experienced the affects of a lightning storm.  During this storm they not only lost power, but serveral valuable electronics.

As mentioned above, the most obvious surges occur from lightning during a storm.

However, a General Electric (GE) and National Power Labs (NPL) study shows that 65 percent to 80 percent of transient surges are caused internally from:

- Pumps (well or pool);

- A/C condenser motors;

- Refrigeration motors;

- Dishwasher motors; and

- Washer/dryer motors.


A surge protector can be conveniently installed on to your electrical panel.

Ceiling fans are a great way to save money on your energy bill.  Now that summer is soon approaching, its the perfect time to consider having a ceiling fan or two installed.  Here are a few reasons why: 

  • During the summer ceiling fans can save up to 40% on your utility bill
  • Most ceiling fans use as much energy as a 100 watt light bulb
  • A ceiling fan can be installed with an adjustable speed switch so you can choose just the right speed for your comfort
  • Great for those days that are just warm, but not too hot
  • Ceiling fans help to circulate fresh air while windows are open


  • By reversing the direction of the fan in the Winter you can circulate the warm air in the room, making you feel warmer, and allowing you to lower your thermostat 

Lastly, proper installation is very important to guarantee efficient and safe use. A qualified electrician can save you time and money along with unneccesary stress and frustration.  An electrician can also take care of unanticipated circumstances that you may not have been prepared for.  

Take the time to hire an electrician, you will be cool all summer long.
