Many people associate the state of Texas with being hot, dry, and dusty, but the truth is that we experience multiple climate and temperature changes throughout the year. In fact, of all the states located in the southern part of the country, we often receive the worst thunderstorms, lightning strikes, heavy winds, hailstorms, and other inclement weather conditions. Even a small surge from these natural disasters can completely destroy your complex and fragile devices, unless you are equipped with whole-house surge protection. If you want to protect your valuables from utter ruin, you need to be ready for the blackouts that are sure to come — speak to our team at Matrix Electric immediately.

Why You Should Consider Whole-House Surge Protection
Some residents are fooled into thinking their expensive valuables are secured from an unexpected loss of power simply because they use power strips that claim to have “surge protection.” Even though it is true that power strips come equipped with a thin strip to absorb the shock of a surge, this element is quite fragile and wears out extremely rapidly. As soon as the strip is worn out, your costly computers, mobile phones, televisions, and sound systems can be irrevocably ruined during even the slightest electrical surge.
Moreover, a power strip is only able to secure the devices plugged into it. Any of your larger devices that are plugged into the wall or to a circuit board, such as ovens, thermostats, dryers, security systems, and HVAC units, will still be extremely susceptible. When you have whole-home surge protection, however, you can secure every appliance and system on your property, whether or not the imbalance of power came from outside or inside the house.

It is important to be on the lookout for the possibility that your home is due for a new protection system, whether because you have never had one before or because your old one is becoming too worn.
Some of the warning signals that your house requires full surge protection include:
- Your house was built several years ago: Homes with outdated panels, service amperage, and wiring are prone to experiencing even more damage when a surge occurs.
- You have many sensitive devices: Although they are extremely powerful, contemporary mobile devices and appliances, as well as automated technology, also have delicate chipsets that will be easily damaged by surges.
- You have been noticing malfunctioning parts of your system: When your system is already experiencing issues, from dimming lights to tripping breakers, this is a sign that it is even more susceptible to a devastating surge.
As soon as you notice these symptoms, do not delay in speaking with Matrix Electric for rapid support.
