Don’t Risk Surge Damage - Install a Surge Protector
When you purchase televisions, computers, stereos, and other electronics for your home, you want to ensure they last a long time. To protect them from surge damage you need to install a whole house surge protector. This can protect you against the following risks:
- Your home can be at risk of lightning strikes up to a mile away. Some homeowner’s insurance policies don’t protect lightning strikes, leaving the damage to your electronics uncovered.
- Your property may suffer from surge damage as temperatures increase.
- Your house may experience an average of 20 energy spikes a day.
Benefits of Surge Protectors vs Power Strips
If you have power strips throughout your home, you might be thinking - why do I need a surge protector? However, while power strips can help you plug in multiple electronics in your home, they do not offer the same protection as surge protectors. Power strips typically have a circuit breaker on-off switch but don’t offer real protection against electrical surges. Surge protectors are meant to protect your electronics from power strikes.
