How Michael & Son determines your estimate
- We determine if the home has a subpanel. The first thing a Michael & Son electrician will check for is whether a sub-panel has been installed in the home. A subpanel is a supplementary electrical panel powering a portion of your home. If you have a subpanel, you'll likely want that protected as well. This means an additional surge protector may be necessary.
- We add in the cost of the surge protector itself. Whole-home surge protectors come with a variety of features and power levels. A surge protector's VPR (Voltage Protective Rating) and MCOV (Maximum Continuous Operating Voltage) are the two most significant factors which determine the cost of the surge protector itself.
- We factor in the cost of any extended warranties. Most manufacturers will offer an extended warranty which will protect the homeowner from paying out of pocket for repairs. In some cases, they may even receive a replacement if the surge protector breaks. Most extended warranties that we encounter tend to be around 2 to 5 years.
