Why Every Home Should Have Whole-House Surge ProtectionDo you feel like your computer, television, and other electronics are not safe unless they are plugged into a surge protector? When you consider not only the cost to replace a computer, but also the data that can be lost, it makes sense to be cautious.

What you might not have thought about is that your refrigerator might have been quite an investment too, as were your washer and dryer, stove, water heater, and everything else you own that is powered by electricity. While you probably can’t plug all of these appliances into surge protectors, you can protect everything in your home with a whole-house surge protection system.

Another reason why this is such a good idea for every home is because today’s appliances are far different from those a few years ago. Nearly everything has sensitive computer components that can be adversely affected by even micro-surges that you aren’t even aware are happening. Unfortunately, our nation’s power grid is more antiquated than the electronics and appliances in our homes, so it often fails to provide consistent power.

While minor fluctuations won’t fry an appliance like a direct surge could, they can shorten your equipment’s functional life and lead to the need for repair parts. You can get the most use from the investment you have made in your appliances by protecting them with the investment into a whole-house surge protection system.
