What is Surge Protection?

Surge protection is equipment that helps protect your electronic equipment from power surges before they damage the electronics in your home. These spikes are typically seen when lightning hits a power line or when an alternating current connects to phone and data lines, putting extra strain on your electrical wiring. Surge protectors can prevent crippling damage to your electronic equipment connected to a power source.

What is GFI?

GFI stands for ground fault interrupter. This is an outlet placed in areas of your home that may potentially contact water or other sources of moisture. These outlets are typically found in kitchens, bathrooms, and unfinished basements.

Is 100 Amps Enough for a House?

The average kitchen alone draws more power than most houses when they were built.

Why Does a Breaker Trip?

A breaker will typically trip because it is overloaded or there is a dead short.
