Whole-house surge protection can give you peace of mind knowing that you will not have to replace high-dollar items or lose any information that might be on your computers due to a surge.What is a surge and where do they come from?

A surge is an abnormal or spike in voltage and current in your electrical system.  Your electrical system can only handle so much electricity.

  1. Surges come from mother nature
  2. Surges come from your utility company

When an electrical spike comes through it can damage your electrical system and everything that is tied to your system. This includes anything that is plugged-in regular outlets.

You may be safe from lighting but!

Did you know that you are more likely being hit by a surge from your Power Company than you do from a lightning surge?

Power surges occur when something boosts the electrical charge in the power lines. This causes an increase in the electrical potential energy, which can increase the current flowing to your to your home.

What do I do next?

There are many types of surge protection on the market, and there are different levels of protection.  The expert electricians at Best Electric Service can evaluate your home or business and discuss what level of surge protection you will need.

Best Electric Service encourages all home and business owners in Colorado Springs and surrounding areas to have surge protection installed.

We recommend that to completely protect your investment; you should consider a 2-stage approach to Surge Protection.

Stage 1 - Primary Protection for Service Entrance Conductors and Panels

Stage 2 - Secondary Protection at Point of Use

By installing two stages of surge protection, your electronic equipment can be protected from most power surges, spikes and voltage impulses that are common every day.

Do not underestimate an unchecked high-voltage surge that can wipe out your investment instantly or the smaller everyday surges that can degrade the electronic components in your home slowly over time.

We also can protect phone, cable and computer networks.

What Others Say About Us

I was extremely pleased with the work Joe did for me this past week and wanted to say something positive so others would consider him for jobs.  But the rating has to be done through a google account, and I do not want to have an account with them - the information required is personal, and I have no doubt sold immediately to places that do solicitations.  But if there is a way to insert my comments, so they contribute to the rating system, here they are. I wanted to say this:  I have an older home and a not-so-robust budget.   Joe inspired confidence with his knowledge, solved a sticky problem for me with my new range, left everything looking good and accommodated my work schedule.  His fees were competitive and, most importantly,  I am confident the work will stand up to the test of time.  I would recommend him highly to anyone asking for an electrician.

I hired Joe Bartels and Best Electric Service to add a 240V circuit for a hot tub at my home. I couldn't have been happier with their thoroughness and customer focus. They worked with our installation schedule, listened to my input and were creative in routing the final conduit. Quick and very professional. They have my highest recommendation!

I called Best Electric for a problem I was having with non-working pendant lights. Joe promptly called back to schedule an appointment. He arrived on time, was straight forward with the pricing and was able to diagnose and fix my problem in a relatively short time. While he was at my home he also was able to hang a new chandelier. I would highly recommend Best Electric!
