Main Grounding Systems
Main Grounding Systems in Austin, TX
Houses built before 1994 in Austin, TX metro area, did not have main grounding systems installed to protect homes from electrical surges. Typical surge protectors purchased at local hardware stores become very limited and cannot defend your electrical system against damage to your circuit breakers, electronics and appliances, leaving many homes at risk for undetected hazards.
Many homes can receive up to 10-40 surges a day, equivalent to 400-3500 volts. In a thunderstom, it is upward of about 45,000 surge outs. Surge protection with home grounding prevents loss of 30 to 60 % of your appliance life. Typical replacement cycle of A/C systems is 6-10 years without surge protection; but with main grounding, A/C systems can last up to 20 plus years.
ABC Electric considers protection of not only your home, but your family, as the most important factor of our business. If your home was built before 1994; or if you don't have a main ground system, call ABC Electric to retro-fit a system that will work together with your surge protector, and provide a place for the energy to flow when it trips.
