Is your family protected from fire and carbon monoxide poisoning?
You know how you get so used to an object that you see every day that it becomes nearly invisible to you? You stop thinking about it altogether. Unfortunately, for most of us, this happens with the smoke alarms, or smoke detectors in our homes. The result is, we forget to test them, to replace their batteries, and to replace them altogether when they need to be. The alarming thing about that is that 40% of all home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms and 17% in homes where the smoke alarms were no longer working.
CO is a concern in any home that uses natural gas or combusts other fuel types. If your home relies on natural gas in some way—and the majority of households do—you must have carbon monoxide detectors to give you the warning your senses cannot. Although you can purchase inexpensive CO detectors at home improvement stores, it’s better to have OT Electric hook them up in your home in units that combine CO detection with smoke detection. Our OT Electric electricians will have both detection needs taken care of in a single installation.
Why Your SWFL Home Needs Surge Protection
According to LCEC, there are 30 million lightning flashes each and every year in the U.S., and Florida is the lightning capitol of the nation! Lightning is just one of the things that cause power surges which can kill your electronic equipment such as computers and televisions. Over 20 million cloud-to-ground lightning strikes occur annually in the continental U.S., whose resulting losses are typically not covered under homeowner’s insurance. Additionally, the average home experiences 20 power surges a day, about half of which are internal.
But what exactly is a power surge? Surges are sudden and unexpected spikes in voltage that travel throughout your home’s electrical system. The effects of a surge can be powerful. From burst light bulbs to fried computers, power surges can wreak incredible damage on your belongings, with costs up in the thousands of dollars to replace and repair. Every day, expensive electronics are taken out of commission by these surges. Lightning induced surges are the most powerful and can send a 200,000-amp jolt through your power lines. That’s why an investment in surge protection devices is not only a wise, but necessary investment.
