Power surges can enter your home unexpectedly during a stormy night or a random power company disruption. They destroy electronic devices in their path and at times cause fires as well.
But did you know that most surges actually come from inside your home?
An average of 80% of residential surges are caused by devices you use everyday including your hair dryer, A/C unit or garage door openers. Every time you turn on a high-powered device, it forms a mini-surge in your home’s electrical circuitry that reduces the life expectancy of your appliances. Over time, these mini surges can damage the circuit boards in appliances and electronics and may cause them to fail or not operate properly which could cost you thousands of dollars in replacement.
It is unfortunate when your Mac or PC dies, but even more so when your photos, documents, music and other personal content are lost along with it as well. To reduce damage from power surges, have a whole house surge protector installed at the panel and additional multi-outlet power strip surge protection for delicate circuitry, telephone and cable lines. This will ensure both main zone as well as secondary zone surge protection to absorb any excess power that seeps through the primary protection.
Give yourself peace of mind for less than you would expect and protect your expensive appliances and precious documents.
