What Is a Surge Protector?

A surge protector or surge suppressor, protects electronics from power surges or "spikes." Power surges can occur in an instant, and the damage they can cause to our sensitive electronics can be bothersome or disastrous in some cases. 

Surge protectors can shield devices such as:

  • TVs
  • Stereo systems
  • Refrigerators
  • Dishwashers
  • Microwaves
  • Washers and dryers
  • HVAC appliances
  • Computers
  • Tablets

Ultimately, a surge protector is a needed investment as it acts as a shield, blocking harmful voltage increases from reaching our devices and ensuring they stay safe and operational. Our team at AirPlus Heating, Cooling & Electrical values clear and honest communication throughout, and we are more than happy to address your questions and concerns.

    “Their technicians were great, easy to work with and very communicative.” - Aaron F.

How a Surge Protector Works

Surge protectors function by using one of these two methods:

  • Metal Oxide Varistor (MOV): This method works by having the surge protector absorb excess voltage and divert the current to ground.
  • Gas Exchange Discharge Arrestor (GDR): The GDR is made up of gas which is normally a poor conductor at a certain voltage level. However, when there‚Äôs an electrical surge, the voltage causes the gad to ionize, making it an effective conductor. The current is then passed to the ground line. Once the voltage returns to normal levels, the gas returns to its original state as a poor conductor. 

What Causes Electrical Surges?

Electrical surges can cause significant damage to homes and commercial buildings. Not only can they damage appliances and electronics, but they can also pose a safety risk to occupants. Electrical surges have different causes depending on if they are internal or external. These causes include:

  • Internal: Internal surges can be caused by motors turning on and off, or the introduction of large appliances such as dryers, HVAC systems, fans, shop tools, and more.
  • External: External surges can occur from lightning, damaged utility lines, power outages, and more.

Whether caused by internal electrical issues or external forces, a surge protector acts as a first line of defense against electrical surges. Contact our surge protector team to shield your property from costly damages and ensure the safety of all those inside.
