Why do we recommend using appliance surge protector gear?
Here are four simple but critical reasons:
One high quality, high performance surge suppressor could be enough to protect all your major appliances for the next 25 years or more. Don't settle for inferior devices that provide partial protection.

NEC Update 2020: SPDs are now required for new or renovated homes. Get the Right Gear!
Today, everything you plug-in seems to have some type of sensitive electronic circuitry.
The oven, dishwasher, refrigerator, freezer, washer/dryer, microwave and other appliances are no exception. They are now considered High Tech.
However, high tech products have a weakness. The weakness is increased sensitivity and susceptibility to abnormal power and frequency changes called transient voltage. Transient voltage is more commonly referred to as power surges.
It's not if, but when. It's just a matter of time.

Blinking or flashing control panel lights, erratic appliance operation, burned out fans, damaged motors and sudden or premature equipment failure. All symptoms of transient voltage damage.
The good news? These frustrating and costly issues are preventable! Apply the Best Surge Protector Options!
Today, dishwashers, ovens and other appliances are built to sell. They are not built to last. This makes the need for quality SPDs even more important.
Installing the right High Quality, High Performance appliance surge protector at the main service panel is a great protection option.
By placing a SPD at the service panel, the entire facility, business or home is protected from external transient voltage entering the building.
Additionally, the right high quality, high performance unit will protect the individual circuits within the panel from internal transient voltage as well. Many individual circuits within a service entrance panel are appliance related.
Typical appliance related dedicated circuits:
Possible additional dedicated circuits:
Where applicable, include Plug-in SPDs as secondary layers of defense for best protection. If service panels are without SPDs, a High Performance Plug-In SPD may be used for stand alone protection for qualified appliances. Layered protection is always preferred.
Protecting appliances from power surges and frequency spikes will save time, money and frustration.
The right surge protector, in the right location, with the right installation may even extend appliance life cycle expectancy.
The Right SPD will deliver the Right Results... Get the Right Gear!
The right SPD employs a True All-Mode Protection design instead of partial protection designs. The right SPD includes a multi-stage, hybrid network with encapsulation technology and optional Frequency Responsive CircuitryTM.
Frequency Responsive CircuitryTM is an Advanced Suppression Technology. Not many SPDs in the marketplace include Frequency Responsive CircuitryTM let alone appliance related SPDs.
Install appliance surge protector devices that are... often imitated ...but rarely duplicated...
