Whole-Home Surge Protector Installation in DFW

Keep your home and your appliances safe with a surge protector.

Contact our experts today for whole-home surge protector installation services in Tarrant, Denton & Dallas Counties.

Power surges are typically caused by your utility company making updates to the system, lightning, or an outdated electrical system. A power surge lasts no more than a second, but it’s often powerful enough to cause damage to your electrical devices and appliances.

Without surge protection in place, your electrical equipment can crash during an unexpected power surge and end up costing you thousands of dollars in damage.

Surge protection is the most effective way to avoid unnecessary damage to your devices and appliances.

Our experts can help you set up a whole-home surge protector for greater peace of mind. Call TopTech Electric today to schedule professional installation in Dallas-Fort Worth or the surrounding area.

Why Install a Whole-Home Surge Protector?

Arlington Electrician

Many homeowners use surge strips or uninterruptible power supply units. These are effective at protecting smaller devices and systems such as your computer, Internet lines, and television. But they won’t be able to project larger appliances, leaving your HVAC system, water heater, stove, as well as your refrigerator vulnerable in the event of a power surge.

This is why we recommend having a whole-home surge protector installed. Whole-home surge protectors offer more comprehensive coverage and can provide you with greater peace of mind.

How Do Surge Protectors Work?

A whole-home surge protector will instantly sense any change in the current (often within nanoseconds) and quickly respond by directing higher voltages to the ground wire instead of your appliances.

Power surges of 40,000 amps or greater can be redirected with a quality surge protector in place. You can opt for a surge protector that comes with additional features as well, such as alarms or thermal fuses.

Type 2 surge protectors are the most common option for homeowners. These can help protect your property from both smaller and larger surges. If you are prepared to move forward with installation, our experts are happy to discuss your options and help you determine the best type of surge protector for your home.

The Surge Protector Installation Process

Whole-home surge protectors are designed to complement your main breaker and are installed in the electrical panel.

Our experts will be able to carry out the appropriate adjustments, spot any potential issues, and ensure a safe and efficient installation.

Appointment was super easy to make. They arrived in the window I was told they would. They had to leave to get the right parts and stayed until the job was complete. The techs friendly and professional.

I had TopTech install 7 smoke detectors as well as fix a few outlets. Pricing was in line with 'national averages', electrician arrived on time with necessary tools/equipment and was done quickly. The electrician (Allan) was professional, helped explain what issues were and took photos of issues. Will recommend in the future to friends/family.Update: I had TopTech come out again for a different issue 2 years later. I requested Allan and he was great again. He was able to diagnose problem after some troubleshooting and fixed outlet on roof and suggested simply solution for my garage. Highly recommend.

Matthew R. and his team came out almost as soon as I called TopTech. An outlet blew and restarting the breaker wouldn't work. Matthew checked essentially every single outlet, even after figuring out the problem, just to make sure everything else was in order. He was super diligent, but also responsive, timely, and kept me in the loop of what was going on. I will absolutely be calling TopTech/Matthew again! The front office people were great to work with, too!
