Home Office Surge Protection

Does Your Home Office Need “Extra” Surge Protection?

Home offices require a number of electronic devices.

Working from home has become the “new normal” for many of us. In order to be productive at our residence, we’ve installed additional computers, monitors, printers, scanners and other electronic equipment.  

These are all devices that are essential to doing our jobs. What would happen if all of this necessary equipment went out at once?  What would you do then?

Power Surges Can Hit at Any Time, Anywhere

With the spring/summer thunderstorm season just getting started, now is the time to make sure all your recently added electronic equipment is properly protected from electrical surges. Surges from lightning strikes can instantly ruin unprotected and poorly protected computers, printers and other electronic devices, even your programmable coffeemaker.

Electrical surges can occur at any time.  The most damaging are lightning strikes close to your home that enter through the power, telephone and cable TV lines. Although surges caused by lightening are the most destructive, it is more common that surges result from motors in our 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. 

Sensitive electronic circuits are susceptible to electrical surges.

Take These Steps to Protect Valuable Electronics

Step 1: Ask a qualified electrician to take a look at what you have in your home or office that is susceptible to power surges and where surge protection is warranted.

Step 2: Add surge protection at the main power panel, cable TV/satellite service and telephone service. This prevents major electrical spikes from outside sources i.e. lightning strikes, from entering your home.

Step 3: Or, if you choose, install individual surge protectors for each device to protect sensitive electronics from surges from both inside and outside your home.

Avoid Expensive Replacement or Repair Bills

Protecting your valuable assets now by adding surge protection will prevent you from dealing with expensive replacement or repair bills later.
