"Tim with Anything Electric did a great job with my basement wiring and prices were reasonable. Very responsive and professional with their work. Definitely will keep them in mind for phase two of my basement project."
Increasingly, Canton residents find themselves more and more dependent on electrical devices in this modern world. Our DVD players, gaming systems, microwaves and of course our computers are important to our quality of life and communication with our family, friends and in some cases, work contacts. Considering also that these electronic devices are not always cheap to replace and contacting a Canton electrician isnâ€™t an option to fix these devices, it is a good idea to consider the following in an effort to prevent damage from electrical surges or spikes.
Electrical surges or spike events are typically defined as a â€œlarge current/voltage transients that occurs in an electrical signal or the power-lineâ€. Basically, itâ€™s when the power line gets hit with a little extra â€œjuiceâ€ for a few nanoseconds, due either externally to something like a lightening strike or internally due to a device that require extra energy to turn on, like a refrigerator or air conditioning unit.
Use caution in using surge protectors, however. As they absorb energy from surges, they can wear out over time. Replace them every three years or when the â€œprotectedâ€ light that comes on most of them goes out.
By using just a little bit of caution, you can save your sensitive electronics from an early death and save your phone calls to a Canton electrician for the big stuff.
