Why Whole-House Surge Protection is Worth the Investment

Did you know your electronics suffer when your home experiences a power surge? The life of your electronics, appliances and any other type of technology in your home can be shortened by all types of power surges. This is why whole-house surge protection is a great investment. Whole-house surge protection devices, also known as SPDs, defend your home against all power surges, no matter how big or small. These power surges can be caused by internal and external sources, like:
  • Power outages
  • Power company malfunctions
  • Tripped circuit breakers
  • Short circuits
  • Lightning strikes
  • Electromagnetic pulses

These are just a few examples of the power surges threatening your home. Lightning strikes may be rare, but if one hits your home, you will wish you had whole-house surge protection, especially since most homes these days have so many electronics and technologically advanced appliances. The information saved on your devices can be jeopardized since they are connected to your wireless router. Once a surge hits, information can be lost, and devices and appliances could be ruined.

Alongside your electronics and appliances, whole-house surge protection safeguards your home’s entire electrical system. Most power surges are short and come from your home’s appliances, so when a power surge like this hits, whole-house surge protection will block the surge’s excess electrical current, protecting your electronics, appliances, and electrical system.

As you can see, there are many reasons why whole-house surge protection is a worthwhile investment for you home.
