High power can happen when electricity is interrupted then immediately re-established. This occurrence forces too much current through the electrical system. Power surges have the ability to knock out your delicate electronics, cause fires, and wreak havoc up and down the circuitry of your home or business.
Natural phenomena can cause serious damage to your appliances and home. When there is a power surge, any devices that you have plugged into the sockets can be ruined. This increase in voltage also leads to an increase in heat, which has the potential of starting an electrical fire.
Cut power lines, lightning, and blown fuses inside your home can also increase electrical voltage. Problems in the electrical grid can lead to power surges or spikes, which can make electronics short circuits.
All electronic devices in your home, including computers, washers and dryers, kitchen appliances, and others are powered through electrical sockets, which provide consistent voltage to keep the appliances functioning.

As important as it is to have electricity, it is also the cause of many property fires. At Ezell Electric, your safety always comes first. Having properly installed, wired, and functioning smoke detectors makes a difference. Smoke detectors are installed directly into your existing electrical system and are connected so that all units go off whenever one does to alert everyone in the space. These units should also contain a battery backup that kicks in should the power go out for any reason.
Considering the size of many homes and businesses in Pinellas County, a smoke detector can be the first and most important indicator that something is wrong. According to the National Fire Protection Association, detectors should be replaced every five years to maintain their efficiency in identifying problems.
Whether your current smoke detectors are experiencing problems, or you need new ones for your home or business, our electricians are ready to help.
We can help with these smoke detector services:
There are many instances where a property owner may not be aware their smoke detectors are no longer functional. This is why monthly inspection and testing of all smoke detectors are important. If you have battery-powered smoke detectors, you should also remember to change the batteries at least once or twice a year. Ezell Electric can help you with routine inspections. We can also replace the battery and perform troubleshooting should we find any problems.
