How Many Joules of Surge Protection Do I Need?

Choosing the right surge protector depends heavily on what electronics you're trying to protect:

  • Small electronics like lamps, clocks, toasters, etc: 600-1,000 joules of protection should be enough to keep these appliances safe.
  • Basic office equipment like printers, routers, and phones and power tools: 1,000-2,000 joules of protection should be enough to protect these slightly more complex and sensitive appliances.
  • Computers, video game consoles, home theater equipment, etc: 2,000 joules of protection is the bare minimum for electronics that store important and valuable data.

Every building has unique needs that require a custom solution. Our electricians understand the many considerations that go into installing surge protectors. It is important to understand the types of electronic devices used in the home and their electrical capacities compared to what the panels and circuits can handle. Rather than replacing your electronics after a strong surge, our surge protectors save both time and money by protecting your home for years to come.

Most surges are not due to lightning strikes or power outages, but rather from overworking the existing electrical system. Surges are completely preventable with the help of a qualified electrician. We bring extensive experience serving the local community to provide the highest quality services.
