NEC Update 2020: SPDs are now required for new or renovated homes. Get the Right Gear!
Residential or whole house surge protector gear has never been more important. The right High Quality SPD units provide the entire electrical system and electronic equipment protection from both external and internal transient voltage damage.
In today's home, electronics are everywhere. Home theater systems, televisions, video games, personal computers, laptops and appliances all have sensitive electronics. These are systems we have come to depend on.
Install the surge protection gear your systems can depend on...
Don't trust your...
...or other sensitive electronics to plug-in surge protectors alone.
In our opinion, thousands of dollars invested in high tech entertainment, heating, cooling and lighting should be protected with the best surge protector options. Not by secondary protective devices that costs $15 - $55 on average.
Surge strips are a great complimentary product to use down-line from whole house surge protector power units (and are a good start). However, used as stand alone prevention only, they are just not the best option.
A new customer had experienced a lightning strike on a power line up the road from his home. When it was all said and done he had lost just about everything that was plugged-in, including plugged-in to surge strips.
Damaged electrical equipment included: microwave, electric range, washer & dryer, television and computer.
The right high quality, high performance, whole house surge protector should be installed on the service entrance power panel. This provides a homes defense against large, external surge events.
In addition to external transient voltage protection, the same unit on the service panel will protect the individual circuits (breakers) from internally generated surges that are occurring hundreds to thousands of times daily.
Note: Today, electrical and electronic products found within homes are built to sell. They are not built to last.
Protecting these electronics from unnecessary stress caused by external and internal transient voltage can improve equipment reliability and dependability. However, for best results, you need the Right SPD.
Not all SPDs are created equal. Not all whole house SPDs deliver the same protection quality.
By protecting ALL incoming lines at the service entrance a homes electronic, electrical and communications equipment are protected from external surge events.
Remember: The Right SPDs provide protection from multiple types of transient voltage damage. Not many whole house SPDs protect against multiple types of transients effectively. Our SPDs Do.
Protected incoming lines should include:
Down-line from the service panel SPD, use plug-in surge protectors for added protection. Quality Plug-in SPDs add a critical second level of defense. Multiple layers (cascade effect) provide homes a solid surge protective design.
Unlike standard residential SPDs, High Performance, whole house surge suppressors protect a home's entire electrical system from multiple types of transient voltage damage. Electrical equipment going unnoticed or usually forgotten about regarding surge protection include:
In other words, major appliances. These home essentials are typically over-looked for surge
protection until they are damaged by a large utility based surge or lightning strike event.
An average home with average appliances, TVs, computers, radios and other electronics can total over $10,000.00 in value. These can all be wiped out in an instant. Whole House Surge Protection is no longer just an option.
Installing the Right SPDs in the Right Locations are critical for home electronics and electrical system reliability.

Our unique line of SPDs are specifically designed for applications and
protection needs of the Residential Industry.
Top of the line RES(S) Series units are high quality, high performance devices. SPDs employ Optimal Response CircuitryTM, Discrete All-Mode Protection, High kA Ratings, Encapsulation Technology and use a Multi-Stage Hybrid Network design.
These devices are Light Commercial Grade SPDs. The RES(S) Series are NOT the average residential grade SPD that flood the marketplace.
Our SPDs are... often imitated... but rarely duplicated....
