Barnes Electric Service's Most Common Power Surge Causes
Power surges can be very dangerous to both your property and your wallet. That is why it is best to know what can cause power surges so you are able to prevent them.
- Worn or exposed wiring - If your house is a little older and you have not updated the wiring, you may be at risk for a power surge. If your wiring is damaged, the electrical current may not be able to travel in the way it is supposed to causing a surge. Exposed wiring should not be handled, so consult an electrician if you suspect you might have some.
- Electrical storms/lightning - Lightning striking down around your property or your electrical lines can be the most harmful source of a power surge. Lightning has the ability to render all your electronics useless, so during a storm, it may be safest to unplug them.
- High electricity-consuming devices - Electronics that takes a lot of energy to operate such as air conditioners, elevators, and refrigerators, can cause power surges. If while using high energy-consuming electronics you notice lights flickering, it may be wise to turn the device off.
- Overburdened outlets/circuits - Often behind desks or TVs there are multiple devices plugged in causing a tangled web of cords. This is not only unsightly but dangerous as well. If an outlet is overused, it can cause power surges and even electrical fires.
