The Wonders of Whole-House Surge Protection

Have you ever had a power surge destroy one or more of your electronic devices? Perhaps you don’t know. Many people who don’t have whole-house surge protection will throw out appliances, video game systems, and other devices because they stopped working. Not knowing the cause, the owner may attribute the breakdown to old age or faulty machinery.

Although we can’t say for sure what broke your electronic device, we can say for sure that your home gets hit with power surges every day.

Lightning strikes do in fact create power surges, but they are actually not the most common cause. Most power surges begin in the home for various reasons, which in the long term can create appliances to malfunction. To avoid saving money replacing your belongings, you can invest in a surge protector.

The two surge protectors you can choose from are:

· Whole-house surge protection

· Plug-in surge protection

Many people purchase power strips to protect their computers, sound systems, televisions, and other in-home electronics. What many don’t know is that you can actually protect your entire home with one protector – a whole-house surge protector. Not only will this save you money on purchasing several power strips, but it could also lessen your chance of having to replace your electronics due to long-term exposure to power surges.
