Generators and Surge Protectors

Cotton Electric offers a wide range of electrical services that also include generators and surge protector installations in the Dallas – Fort Worth area.

Operating heavy appliances, downed power lines, and lightning can cause sudden spikes in voltage, causing damage to your electronics and appliances. If you don’t have surge protection, it is time to call a qualified and certified electrician to install whole-house surge protection to safeguard your gadgets, and minimize safety risks that power surges may pose. It is also important to have a back-up generator to deal with unexpected power outages, avoiding disruptions at the home or office.

Surge Protector Installation in Dallas – Fort Worth

Power surges can damage your electric panel and electronic devices – whether it is your television, HVAC system, laptops, microwave, refrigerator, smart phones, tablets, or lamps. Your home goes through electrical surges almost every day, and modern appliances are extremely sensitive to these power spikes.

Power fluctuations have the potential to damage and destroy any equipment that is plugged into the outlet. Even small, every-day surges cause gradual wear and tear of your electrical equipment, reducing their lifespan and performance over a period of time. These surges not only damage costly appliances, but can also cause an electrical fire at your home or business if you are not protected. Our Dallas-Fort Worth surge protector installation experts believe it is better to invest in surge protection than spending thousands of dollars in repair after the damage has been done. Installing whole house surge protection will help safeguard your house’s sensitive electrical system, electronics, and appliances from the damage caused by sudden power surges.


What causes power surges?

High-power appliances being switched on and off
Down power lines
Issues with transformers
Power grid switching
Storms and lightning strikes

At Cotton Electric, our Dallas surge protector installation team installs both multi-outlet power strip and whole-house surge protection. While power strips are good for redirecting small surges, we recommend installing whole-house surge protectors, as they offer better coverage and better protection from surges of a higher magnitude, such as those caused by lightning. Whole house surge protective devices are hard-wired into the electrical service box of your house. This works by safely shunting electrical spikes to the grounding wire.

Surge protector installation is a job best left to qualified and licensed electricians. Cotton Electric Service, Inc. is your local and professional electrical company and our technicians have all the skills and technical knowledge required for surge protection installations in the Dallas – Fort Worth Metroplex. We make sure the work is completed safely and efficiently.
