Whole House Surge Protection in Denver
Protect Your Home with Whole-Home Surge Protection
In today’s modern world, our lives are intricately woven with technology. From smart appliances to entertainment systems, and even critical infrastructure like HVAC systems, everything seems to rely on a steady and uninterrupted flow of electricity.
However, the power grid isn’t always as stable as we’d like it to be. Unforeseen events such as lightning strikes, power outages, or even fluctuations in the power supply can lead to electrical surges that pose a significant threat to our valuable electronic devices and appliances. This is where surge protection in Denver and the expert electricians Blue Sky come into play.

What Is a Power Surge?
Electrical surges, also known as voltage spikes, are sudden and temporary increases in voltage levels within an electrical system. These surges can originate from both internal and external sources. Internally, large appliances like air conditioners and refrigerators can cause minor surges when they cycle on and off. Externally, lightning strikes are the most dramatic culprits, sending massive amounts of energy surging through power lines.
Even though these surges last only milliseconds, they can inflict serious damage on sensitive electronics. Think of them as tiny but powerful shockwaves that overload and fry delicate circuits, rendering devices inoperable. While some immediate damage might be visible, such as burnt components or a sudden shutdown, the long-term effects might not manifest immediately, leading to a shortened lifespan of your devices.
Comprehensive Protection with Whole-House Surge Protection
While individual surge protectors on power strips offer a certain degree of protection for individual devices, they can’t safeguard your home’s entire electrical system from external surges or those originating from within your home. This is where whole-house surge protection in Denver can be vital, offering a robust line of defense against surges at the point of entry itself.
Whole-house surge protection systems in Denver are designed to intercept and redirect excessive voltage levels away from your electrical system and into the ground. By installing surge protection at the main electrical panel, you’re effectively stopping surges in their tracks before they have a chance to spread throughout your home’s wiring.
Benefits of Whole Home Surge Protection:
- Comprehensive Coverage: Unlike individual surge protectors that only shield specific devices, whole-house surge protection defends all appliances and electronics connected to your home’s electrical system.
- Longevity: By preventing surges from entering your home, you extend the lifespan of your devices, saving you money in replacement costs.
- Fire Prevention: Some power surges generate heat, which can lead to electrical fires. By installing surge protection, you’re also enhancing the safety of your home.
- Property Value: A whole-house surge protection system can be an attractive selling point for potential buyers, as it demonstrates a commitment to the long-term health and safety of the home.
- Peace of Mind: With whole-house surge protection, you can rest assured that your valuable investments are shielded against unexpected voltage spikes, reducing the risk of downtime and inconvenience.

How can I know that my home’s electrical system is safe?
Perform an electrical safety inspection at home at least once a year. Start by checking your fuse panel or breaker box. Make sure that it’s not overloaded and that there aren’t any loose wires or connections. If you have circuit breakers, flip a couple and make sure the box is working as designed. Next, examine all visible cords and wires. Make sure that there aren’t any exposed wires and that all cords are plugged in properly. Finally, if you have GFCI outlets in your home, check them to make sure they are fully functional.
Why are my electrical bills so high?
Electrical bills can go up for many reasons. A surprising number of our customers find that their bills go up because the electrical company raises rates. They may notify you, but these notifications are easy to miss. If your company hasn’t raised rates, there are a number of places where your electrical system might be leaking electricity. The best way to find out what is going on in your home is to bring in an electrical professional from Blue Sky to find the problem and fix it quickly.
How can I improve my home’s lighting?
There are so many things you can do to improve your lighting. We can install lights that highlight or spotlight certain features of a room or certain pieces of art. We can also install lights so that they are convenient for the areas where you read or work. Finally, we can update your lighting so that it fits in with the look and feel of your home and the latest trends if you care about those. Call us today to make your lighting better than it’s ever been.
When should I call a professional electrician?
Bring in a professional for most electrical problems and installations. Working with electricity can be dangerous and it’s not worth an injury just to do it yourself. We know that people worry about the hassle and the cost of calling an electrician. At Blue Sky, we promise to do our work when it’s convenient for you. We also promise to work with you as much as possible on the cost of repairs or installations so you can have a safe, functional electrical system that you don’t have to worry about.
What can I do to prevent power surges?
Avoid damage from power surges when you install a whole-home surge protector or use highly-rated surge protectors for all of your important plugs and outlets. If you find out that you are having regular power surges, remove any cheap electronic devices from the system and see if the surges continue. If they keep going, it’s time to bring in an electrical professional to test your system and find the problem.
What should I do if my breakers keep tripping or my fuses keep blowing?
Breakers flip every now and then and fuses blow. It’s only a problem when it keeps happening, either on the same circuit or on different ones. If you have problems on different circuits, the issue may lie in your fuse or breaker box. Get a pro to test it out and see what is going on. If there’s one circuit that keeps causing problems, make sure you don’t have too many high-wattage devices plugged into it. Try unplugging one to see if the problem continues. You may need to plug some devices in somewhere else or install a new circuit to handle the necessary wattage.
What is involved in installing a hot tub?
Are you thinking about getting a new hot tub? They can provide you a great way to relax and have fun with the people you love. However, you need to make sure that you have the right electrical setup before you try to use your new tub. Some hot tubs are “plug and play” so you can simply plug them into an outdoor electrical outlet. However, most hot tubs require more voltage than normal. This can mean installing a new circuit or upgrading an existing one so that your hot tub will function. Our experts from Blue Sky can take a look at your new hot tub and your existing electrical setup and get everything working well soon.
