Whole Home Surge Protectors

We have a lot of electrical needs in today’s modern world. From household appliances to entertainment systems, computers, and more, we have a lot tied into our home’s electricity. However, without the proper level of surge protection, you could be risking all these things to severe damage or needing to replace them much sooner than you should.

Even if you’ve never experienced a surge coming into your home before, over 80% of residential voltage surges are generated within your own home and they happen more often than you’d think. This is why Quail Services urges all of our Auburn customers to protect their homes through the use of a whole-home surge protection device or SPD for short.

How Does Whole Home Surge Protection Work?

Not to be confused with lightning or current protection systems, a whole-home surge protector attaches to your electric panel, managing the voltage in your home’s electrical system by safely dispersing excess voltage away from your home if it detects voltage above a certain threshold. In practice, this means that every piece of equipment, device, and electrical fixture are protected from external and internal surges without the need for point-of-use surge protection.

Benefits of Whole Home Surge Protection?

A whole-home surge protector is just that. It protects anything plugged into your home’s electrical system natively, without the need for point-of-use protectors (commonly seen as surge protection strips or outlets). As a primary line of defense, this is the basic level of protection all homes should have and is now required by code in all new construction. When used in combination with point-of-use surge protection, SPDs can eliminate the threat of voltage surges to your expensive devices and equipment.

Do You Have to Update Whole Home Surge Protection?

Wear and tear will occur on any surge protector through use. This means that over time it will lose its effectiveness to protect your home. The lifespan of whole-home SPDs is typically three to five years depending on how often your home experiences surges. Regardless, we always recommend you check your surge protector for proper operation at least once a year.

It was a pleasure dealing with all the people a Quail Services. The job was done on time and professionally. Quail did all the leg work for the rebates on the mini split we had installed which is great. I will definitely call them again with any more needs.

Quail Services provided excellent and professional service at my home. Logan and James M. were prompt, efficient and personable. They were able to complete the plumbing job, and also they completed two other items that were not scheduled. They showed expertise in the field, and the professional service was excellent. I would highly recommend this service.

I lost hot water and heat at 10pm. Within 15 minutes of calling the emergency line and was talking to tech. The honesty. Reasonable rates. And hard work for this company is outstanding. I can not speak more highly.

Quail Services got it right, WOW. No question about it, they have the service piece down cold. Had an issue with my HVAC system. The owner called me directly and within the hour sent his ace out to remedy my issue. I have worked with his technician Bill for the last four years since moving to Webster. Once again, he came and conquered. He wasn’t rushing the job or rushing my questions. He took his time to ensure I was comfortable with the end product. Thank you again for the great service. Keep up the good work. Other industries could learn something from your business plan.
