Surge Protection Services

Technician Looking at Electrical Panel | Electrician ClearwaterAt Midway Services of St Petersburg, Clearwater and Tampa, we offer surge protection services to protect your home against electro-static damage, voltage spikes and electrical fires.
Our Tampa Bay area is world famous for its lightning displays.  These natural phenomena are beautiful to watch but can be deadly to sensitive electronic equipment in your home.

Midway offers whole home surge protection solutions that will safeguard all outlets and appliances in your  home.  This is a great alternative to installing individual surge protection on individual outlets around the house.

When You Need Surge Protection

According to the How-ToGeek website,

“Electrical sockets are supposed to provide a consistent voltage of electricity, and devices you plug into your power outlets depend on this. In some cases, a power spike can occur when the voltage suddenly increases. This can often be caused by lightning strikes, power outages, or malfunctions in the grid the power company is responsible for. A spike is a short increase in voltage, while a surge is one that lasts more than a few seconds. Surges are usually caused by problems with the electrical grid.”

If you plan on selling your home at any point down the road, making sure it is protected against voltage spikes will help its resale value. Potential buyers will look at this feature as one less thing they will have to worry about in the future.

 Overloaded Surge Protector | Electrician ClearwaterVoltage spikes can come from either inside your Tampa Bay area home, such as from blown fuses, or from outside sources, such as lightning or cut power lines. If a voltage spike hits your house, any appliances that are plugged in will most likely be ruined, even if they are powered off.

Consider for a second every appliance that is plugged into an outlet in your home:


  • Televisions
  • Kitchen appliances
  • Washers and dryers
  • Computers
  • Printers and scanners

Imagine how expensive replacing all those appliances would be and what would happen if the melted wires started an electrical fire.

Most of the expensive appliances in our homes, such as computers and printers, come with what are known as microprocessors, which are multipurpose devices that deal with the digital data for both input and output functions. These units are sensitive to power surges and, if damaged, may require complete replacement. Not only will you lose money on repair or replacement costs, but you could also lose valuable data.

This is just one example of the many reasons why having surge protection in your Tampa Bay area home is necessary. Think about how frustrating it would be to have to spend thousands of dollars on repairing/replacing appliances or mending damage caused by an electrical fire—especially when it could have been avoided with a simple electrical overflow protector installation.

"Midway services is great. I called in a panic because I thought I killed my garbage disposal. I called in the morning and by the afternoon we had Felix come out. He fixed our garbage disposal and leaky pipe. He was very knowledgeable, experienced, and friendly. He took great care not to make a mess. He wore boot covers as to not track in dirt. He made what I thought was going to be an awful experience a pleasant one. Not the cheapest but worth every penny! Thank you Suzanne (dispatch) Felix and Midway Services!"

We needed our a/c serviced at 4am and Midway had someone out within the hour. He was friendly, informative, and thorough. Luckily it was a minor thing and we were very pleased with three service AND the cost..... so much so that we have contracted with Midway to service or a/c twice a year and our hot water heater once a year at a cost that is only a few dollars more annually than my Amazon prime account. So worth it!

"I have requested Shane as my tech and Midway has gone out of there way to make him available. Jeff has also been involved in resolving my A/C issues. Midway's techs, operators and senior officers have gone above the normal customer service regarding my A/C units. I own a large laundromat and have two large units that require scheduled maintenance and work. I am please with Midways service."

Had several bids to replace our entire HVAC system that crashed. Midway Services gave a great price and advice on the system we needed. Installed in 1-day and with extreme professionalism. We could not have been more satisfied. Their Techs were amazing and even cleaned the house before leaving. I was surprised that they did not even break for lunch so we got them pizza which they grabbed from time to time as they kept working. What a crew! Highly reccomend Midway and, in fact, we will be using them for the remodel of our bathroom and enlargement of our bedroom.

I have been using Midway Services for about 6 or 7 years. They have always been professional, responsive and good communicators. They respond quickly to needs of their customers every time. I have recommended them to several people. I give them an A+++

Midway Services is my call to outstanding work and professionalism by a staff highly trained to repair, remodel, replace and improve home ownership. After 26 years of owning and diligently caring for our home, it just began needing more assistance. A new hot water heater, toilets, tired bathrooms, hard water deposits, outlets that shut off, and the list went on. In the past seven months I have had the experience to work with Midway employees who have entered our home as professional members of a company they take pride in working for. Their work is outstanding. I can hardly wait for them to begin my kitchen remodel! I am proud to say Midway Services is a company I would highly recommend. Their customer satisfaction and work ethic is present every time a service person steps up to the door with Midway Services on that shirt.

We had an emergency with our AC unit one evening and Midway Services sent out HVAC service Dom L. He was fantastic! He temporarily fixed the problem so our AC worked that night until the part came in a few days later. Dom sat with us and gave us all of our options with prices. He made us feel very comfortable in choosing the best option for us (even since our unit was a quite few years old.) He was very upfront and honest on our options and let us choose the best route for us. We appreciated his honesty. We had some water leaking a few days later and we requested Dom back and he fixed the leak and replaced all the new parts that came in. He worked very hard and cleaned over and beyond (it was more cleaning that he thought.) He even took our wet rugs (we had in our garage) out to dry! He went over and beyond. He was very knowledgeable, hard working, kind and explained everything to us thoroughly. We would highly recommend Midway Services to everyone. They are very reliable, hard working, honest and Dom was exceptional!
