The Atlanta electricians, Pat Murphy Electric, discuss why nearly every room in your home should have a surge protector. These devices divert excess energy loads away from fragile consumer electronics and home appliances.

ATLANTA, GA, June 17, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Atlanta electricians, Pat Murphy Electric, remind homeowners to use surge protectors whenever possible to avoid damaging their valuable electronics. A lot of people confuse these devices with power strips, so it is worth distinguishing the two. The role of a power strip is to provide more outlets. Instead of the standard two sockets on the wall, you can have as many as 12 ports available for plugging in your consumer electronic devices.

Stop the Surge Before It's Too Late
A surge protector acts a fail-safe in the event of an electrical surge, which is basically any increase (sustained or immediate) in your home wiring's voltage load. Standard electrical lines in homes are designed to transfer 120 or 240 volts of power, but there are instances when excess voltage can come about. Power spikes are not uncommon but can instantly ruin that expensive, flat-panel TV hanging on your wall or that new video game console if you are not careful.

These low-draw devices are not equipped to handle a sudden increase in voltage, unlike larger load appliances like air conditioners, refrigerators and washers and dryers. The commercial electrical contractor notes the factor that differentiates surge protectors from their vulnerable power strip counterparts is the Metal Oxide Varistor or MOV.

According to Guy Roberts, CEO of Pat Murphy Electric, Inc., "This is a small, two-armed metal prong that absorbs excess voltage during power spikes. It traps the energy from going where it does not need to go. Surge protectors are an inexpensive investment that are absolutely necessary."
