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Power surges are typically caused by your utility company making updates to the system, lightning, or an outdated electrical system.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?

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.

Top Tech’s electrician Casey was professional, friendly, and efficient. He expertly diagnosed our issue as a faulty light switch, and replaced the switch in a few minutes. We contacted Top Tech late in the day, and by the next morning our issue was resolved satisfactorily at a reasonable price. We will use this company anytime we have an electrical issue. Great service!

Old house with weird things going on. Ac quit working but also when you turned the thermostat on or off, You would lose the power to TV, lights, Oxygen concentrator, a lot of stuff. Do the opposite everything flickered , then came back on. But no AC in Texas hot weather with major health problems. Bobby came, explained what was needed. How much it cost. Gave options. Bobby the one that gave a quote after a thorough inspection ! Then Bobby & Allen( sorry if I misspelled the name. )Installed everything the same day ! Brought house up to code & worked very hard ! Now AC cold as a cucumber , electric no longer has a mind of it's own, nor is it a fire hazard! Thanks guys & office staff! Have a Blessed weekend !

If I could give 10 stars for Top Tech - and specifically for electrician David Gandara - I would. Truly exceptional service from start to finish. Polite, knowledgeable, transparent, friendly, you name it and David was spot on.Was it a bit pricey, sure - but worth every penny. We had a circuit breaker that tripped and wouldn’t reset. David meticulously tracked down the source of the problem all the while explaining exactly what he was doing and looking for. You get what you pay for and their quick and professional service was complexly worth it.
