Everything You Need To Know About Surge Protectors

If you’re not familiar with surge protectors and are wondering what a power surge is, keep reading. A surge protector is what? What then is a surge protector for the whole house? Power surges can happen when the flow of electricity is interrupted and then resumed, or when something causes electricity to flow back into the system. Electrical surges can be caused by lightning strikes, broken power lines, broken appliances, and improper wiring in the home. Even though a single surge only lasts a fraction of a second, frequent surges can seriously harm the electrical parts of your home, shortening their lifespan. SURGE AND LIGHTNING PROTECTION 3

Power surges can result in “electronic rust,” which slowly deteriorates internal circuitry until it collapses. Even though small surges occur frequently throughout the day, you might not even notice them because they leave no outward signs. The best approach to prevent surge damage to your devices is to plug them into power surge protectors.

Many homeowners believe that when they plug their computer into a power strip, surface protection starts and stops. Sadly, this doesn’t happen very often. So, you can’t rely on power strips to protect your house and your equipment. Instead of using power strips, a surge protector that snaps into place is a more complete and reliable choice. A single surge protector or surge protector breaker can safeguard your entire house from surges. Because of this, they are referred to as “whole-house surge protectors.”

Lightning and grounding protection

lightning protection installation Lightning Protection System consists of  lightning rod or Lightning Arrester (LA) also known as Air Terminal,  a metal rod mounted on a structure or Lightning mast and intended to protect the structure from a lightning strike, to transfer Lightning Energy to ground and Earthing.  If lightning hits the structure, it will preferentially strike the rod and be conducted to ground through a wire, instead of passing through the structure, where it could  cause electrocution  or fire

What is a home lightning protection system?

When lightning strikes, the resulting electrical surge can travel through utility transmission lines to nearby homes. And, of course, a direct lightning strike on your home can cause serious damage. But if your home has a lightning protection system, a surge caused by lightning may more often be safely deflected into the ground. A lightning protection system is not intended to prevent a strike. Its purpose is to provide a safe path on which the current can be safely directed to the ground.

What does a lightning protection system look like?

-Air terminals: These inconspicuous copper or aluminum poles are spaced vertically on the roof and are also known as lightning rods. The air terminals act as lightning strike detectors, intended to deflect the bolt of lightning.

-Main conductors: Made of copper or aluminum, these braided cables link the air terminals to the grounds and other parts of the system.

-Grounds: All constructions must have a minimum of two ground rods buried at least 10 feet beneath the surface of the ground. To prevent injury or damage to the structure, the ground terminations send the dangerous current into the earth.

-Bonds: Bonding secures conductivity and prevents side flashing (lightning jumping between two objects) by joining metallic bodies (roof components) and grounded building systems to the primary conductor.

-Protection for trees: According to the Lightning Protection Institute, any tree that is 10 feet or taller than a house should have a lightning protection system installed. Although trees cannot provide protection, many homeowners opt to have them protected because they value them. A tree that isn’t protected that’s close to a building could additionally endanger the nearby house from side-flash hazards.

Only a lightning protection system contractor should be hired to design and install these systems.
