Surges of electricity can be dangerous and damaging to your home. Electrical protection is important to protect against lightning strikes, tripped circuit breakers, and malfunctions that can cause voltage spikes; here are a few tips to remember during your next LA home inspection.

Extension Cords

An easy way to guard against surges is to use extension cords with surge protectors in them. However, it can be pain to purchase and plug in an extension for every single electrical device in your home, and you must be careful not to overload an outlet.

Whole-House Protection

A better option is to have a surge protection device installed on your main electrical panel to protect your whole home. If you’re interested in comprehensive surge protection, you should consult a Beverly Hills electrician—call Powerhouse Electric at 323-464-0888 today.
