Summer is the time of year to be sure your home is safe electrically. So, why not make summer the time for your yearly electrical check up? Here are a few things to consider and a few places to start:

Surge Protectors

With summer comes summer storms, black outs and the need for surge protectors. Surge protectors are designed to protect electrical devices from voltage spikes. A surge protector is there to limit the voltage supplied to an electric device by either blocking or shorting to ground any unwanted voltages above a safe threshold. At our electrical store you can find a variety of quality, dependable surge protectors to help safeguard your home. It is also important to know that not all surge protectors are alike. The experts here at our electrical store can help you find one for your unique needs.

Electrical Panel

Is your electrical panel up to date? Do you have old circuit breakers that need replaced? Now is a great time to ensure your electrical panel is current with the latest codes. And, if you are considering selling your home this summer, this is all the more important.
