Protect home appliances from power surge
But, too often, people are plugging items into a 15 amp circuit that really requires a 20 amp breaker. In addition, the code for homes built 30 or 40 years ago also didn’t include arc fault circuit interrupters in bedrooms, which are designed to eliminate fire hazards and are part of state code in newer homes. That’s why Bratcher agrees with DTE’s Kaufmann that adding a whole-house surge protector is the first step to safeguarding your appliances and equipment. “It’s usually less than $500 to have a whole-house surge protector installed, and that’s a small price compared to the cost of replacing a sump pump, air conditioner or big screen TV because they were damaged by a power surge,” he said. In addition to adding a whole-house surge protector, Bratcher also suggested upgrading your electric panel with 20 amp circuits for areas where you are using some of these power-hungry appliances and electronics.
