Residential...or whole house surge protector gear has never been more important. The right units provide your entire electrical system and your 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.
Choose the gear your systems can depend on...
Don't trust your...
...or other sensitive electronics to just plug-in surge protectors.
In our opinion, thousands of dollars invested in high tech entertainment equipment should be protected with a product that costs more than $15 - $55 on average.
Be careful. Read the connected equipment warranty very closely. Next, read it again even more closely.
Surge strips are a great complimentary product to use down-line from whole house surge protector power units (and are a good start), but as stand alone prevention - they're just not the best option.
A customer experienced a lightning strike hit on a power line a few miles up the road from his home. When it was all said and done, he'd lost just about everything that was plugged-in…including plugged-in to surge strips.
major equipment lost because of this lightning strike included his
microwave, televisions, stove, washer-dryer, computer and stereo. Regarding the "down-line-equipment" warranty, that was more trouble that it was worth.
It doesn't have to be that way. Don't let it become that way.
Take preventative measures with quality options. Again, don't leave your home electronics to just surge strip protection.
The right high quality high performance whole house surge protector equipment should be installed on the service entrance power (main panel). This provides your homes defense against large external surges entering your home.
In addition to external transient voltage protection, the same unit on the service panel will help protect the electrical circuits from internally generated surges as well.
Note - electrical and electronic products found within your home today are built to sell not to last.
these products from unnecessary stress caused by external and internal
transient voltage damage can help extend the life of the equipment and better protect these investments.
less electronic products you replace within your home because of unnecessary, preventable surge damage - the less headache and expenses you'll endure.
By protecting ALL incoming lines at the service entrance location first you are protecting your entire homes equipment from external surges entering your system. Plus - you gain the added benefit of mitigating internally generated surges.
All incoming lines should include: power, data and telephone.
Down-line from your home panel unit, make sure to use a plug-in surge protector for added protection.
Quality plug-in units add a critical second level of defense against any let-through voltage remaining from large external surges.
With at least two levels of defense, you provide your home a solid, overall protection scheme.
Quality whole house surge suppressor equipment will help protect your entire system.
This includes items such as the oven, refrigerator-freezer, furnace, lights and microwave. In other words - your appliances. Many times these products are over-looked for surge
protection until they are damaged by a major strike.
An average home with average appliances, TV's, computers, radios and other electrical gadgets can total over $15,000.00 in value. These electronics can be wiped out in an instant.
Surge protection should not be viewed as an option. Protect your home investment.
