Why Should I Be Concerned About Surges?
Machines that contain microprocessors – such as TV, computers, washing machines, microwaves and dishwashers – are vulnerable to surges. They may sustain permanent damage from the least amount of voltage. Even a fluctuation of 5 to 10 volts can be devastating to those electric devices. With the installation of a whole-house surge protector, you’ll ensure that your electrical equipment is safe from electric fluctuation and prevent your expensive equipment from frying.
Surge protection is key to keeping your electrical equipment safe from power surges. A large power surge, mostly caused by lightning, could fry most of your electronic devices and melt the metal and plastic components. Smaller electric power surges usually reduce the functionality of devices or blow fuses. Prevent your equipment from overloading and contact us today to see how our electricians can help through the installation of a whole-house surge protector system.

Checking Your Electrical Panel
Your electrical panel needs regular check-ups, especially if it is older than 25 years. Here are a few signs that you might need to replace your electric panel:
- Crackling sounds from the electrical panel
- Corrosion and rust from circuit breakers
- Heat/warmth from the interior of the panels
- Equipment running at less than full power
- Outlets near water sources
- A constant need for extension cords
- If your home has 60-amp or 100-amp service, it can’t support some equipment.
- Your Myrtle Beach area home is older and uses a fuse block or split-bus panel, both of which lack main breakers.
If you’ve noticed any of these issues with your electrical panel, call or contact us online as soon as possible to replace it with a new one.
