  • Extremely brief spikes in electrical power that burn up electrical circuits inside appliances and electronic equipment.
  • 30% enter the home through the power lines, telephone lines and cable TV/satellite lines. These are the most damaging.
  • 70% are generated by equipment inside the home from motors and large appliances turning off and on.

House with potential power surge damage points

  • PHYSICAL DAMAGE: The most noticeable and dramatic, these are the result of large power surges originating outside the home.
  • DISRUPTION: The computer locks up or shuts down, the DVD player malfunctions, the washing machine shuts down before the end of the cycle.
  • DEGRADATION: Also called “electronic rust,” it shortens the lifespan of your equipment so that it mysteriously stops working sooner than one would expect
