You think it won’t happen to you and then BAM! the lightning flashes, the thunder crashes and so do all the electronic devices in your home.
Your computer, your large screen TV, home entertainment equipment, your microwave, perhaps your electronic features on your refrigerator and other appliances. All gone. Fried.
Surge Protection Protects Sensitive Electronics
Electrical surges can occur at any time. The most damaging are those that enter the home through the power, telephone and cable TV/satellite lines like lightning strikes close to your home. Actually it’s more common that surges result from motors and large appliances kicking on and off and creating electrical spikes within your home.
Today’s homes are more reliant than ever on appliances and electronics that are controlled by extremely sensitive microprocessor circuits. These circuits are easily damaged or disrupted by power surges originating both inside and outside the home.
Protecting Your BIG $$$ Investments
Many of us have invested significant dollars in our home computers and electronic equipment. Wouldn’t it be wise to invest a little more to protect these major purchases?
Surge protection comes in multiple forms, but the approach that provides the best overall protection involves installing surge protection at different points in your home.
- MAIN ZONE: Surge protection installed at the main power panel, cable TV/satellite service entrance, and telephone/broadband internet service entrance
- INTERIOR ZONE: Individual surge protectors for sensitive electronics inside the home.
- EXTERIOR ZONE: Surge protection for equipment located outside the home such as the air conditioning unit, pool pump or well pumps.
Physical damage, disruption or degradation to our electronic devices doesn’t have to occur the next time lightning strikes near your home. With a well thought through surge protection plan, you’ll sleep easier knowing you won’t have to replace your 60” TV anytime soon.
