Many homeowners believe that a simple power strip is sufficient to protect sensitive electronics from a power surge or lightning strike. Unfortunately, that is not the case.
Each year, there are more than 20 million lightning strikes in the United States, each capable of sending a huge wave of voltage through your home's electrical system.
Other causes of power surges include downed power lines, sudden changes in electricity usage by a nearby business and daily fluctuations in power as household appliances in your home cycle on and off.
Though most power surges last less than one second, the damage they cause can be irreparable.
If your home or costly electronics are at risk from electrical surges, Whole House Surge Protection may be the answer for you.
Whole home surge protectors act like pressure-relief valves. Normally they allow electrical current to flow unimpeded. When an electrical surge is detected however, the extra energy is diverted to a ground wire and away from your home's appliances and sensitive devices.
