Protect your home from power surges.
Whole-House Surge Protector in Albuquerque
Think about everything in your home that uses electricity. Your phone, plugged in and charging. Your computer and television. Your thermostat, air conditioner, and water heater. Just about everything important in your home is connected to an outlet.
It’s all vulnerable to a power surge—and they’re more frequent than you might think. Even small surges can damage your appliances and electronics.
Our electricians at Wagner are ready to help. We’re Albuquerque’s locally trusted team for electrical services. With our whole house surge protector installation, we’ll ensure your home—and everything in it—is better protected against power surges.
Why do I need whole-home surge protection?
When most homeowners think of the phrase ‘surge protector,’ they probably picture the outlet strip under their computer desk.
Here’s the thing, though: most plugged-in power strips actually do very little to protect your electronics from damage. Plus, a power surge can travel through other, unprotected cords—such as a coaxial cable connected to your modem or TV.
Beyond that, some of your home’s most expensive appliances—such as your refrigerator, range, washing machine, and dryer—have no surge protection at all.
Is your home up to code?
The average home today has $10,000+ worth of electronics, devices, appliances, and other equipment. This makes a power surge a potentially expensive event for any home and any homeowner.
In response, the National Electric Code (NEC) has updated its guidance to states, builders, and contractors. The new NEC requires builders and contractors to install a whole-home surge protector when building or renovating a home. These requirements have been adopted by our state.

Here’s what you need to know.
What causes power surges?
Most homeowners associate power surges with thunderstorms. Here in New Mexico, we’re known for our lightning strikes. When lightning hits a power line, it sends 200,000 amps crashing through wiring.
Downed Power Lines
Power lines can be brought down by wind, snow, or even fire. When they fall, they often send a surge to nearby homes, negatively affecting all appliances and connected electronics.
The appliances in your home that use the most energy—such as your air conditioner, dryer, or fridge—can send small surges throughout your home as they turn off-and-on.
