MILESTONE - FAQ
DOES MILESTONE OFFER SURGE PROTECTION?
Yes! Milestone recommends that every home should have some type of surge protection. If your home is unguarded from harmful electrical surges, give us a call today and we can install surge protection on your home.
TYPES OF SURGE PROTECTION
Almost all surge suppressors are made up of single or multiple metal oxide varistors (MOV’s). They function similar to a capacitor. When an MOV receives a charge that exceeds the normal energy level, it drains it, or bleeds it back to the ground. Most surge suppressors are one-time units, meaning once they have performed their surge suppressing task, they need to be replaced.
Some three phase applications can require surge suppressors. Several units that are available use parallel technologies allowing multiple uses and higher life expectancy, however these units usually do not offer any insurance for your electronics or appliances. The worst part is they are very expensive! Our surge suppressors have a limited warranty, and cover up to $50,000.00 of damage to your electronics (depending on the model).
RECOMMENDED SURGE PROTECTION LEVELS...
Level I: Whole house protection – This unit installs on the main breaker box. It provides protection from incoming surges occurring from the utility company.
Level II: Independent surge protection at point of use – Wherever you have sensitive electronics, plasma TV’s, sound systems, or computers, you should have additional surge protectors. These will provide another level of protection; protection from inside surges. That’s right, you homes own electronics, motors, even your refrigerator can induce surges on the circuits that can damage or even destroy other electronics in your home. A whole house surge protector will not protect against this type of transient or surge. We can supply and install these levels of surge protection at your convenience.
