What is Surge Protection?

This is a device that is hooked up to your panel that will protect all of your vital electronic devices in your home from sudden surges and spikes in your electrical lines. It is similar to the device that you can plug into your outlet for your computer or other electronics only this one will take care of your entire home. For information on the cost of surge protection ask your technician. The cost is very minor knowing that the manufacturer will provide a $25,000 warranty for any electronic equipment that is lost.


What is an example of a surge that causes damage?

Surges can happen during lightning storms. If lighting strikes a power line and follows into your home with excess voltage, the power will disperse to anything that is plugged into your outlets and potentially “damage” these items. When these items are damaged, you will lose them and the item will no longer be any good. Items like plasma TV’s, computers, appliances and other household electronics might be lost when this happens. These are enough reasons to have surge protection in your home so that your expensive electronics are safe.


Plus if the surge protector does not do its job, there is a $25,000 manufacturer warranty on your items. 


If you are interested in protecting your vital electronic equipment, make sure to let your technician know that you are interested in Surge Protection.
