If you are concerned about damaging your electrical system, investing in whole-home surge protection is the best way to protect your home. Power surges can come from many sources. These small but frequent surges can deteriorate your electronic items. If your home doesn’t currently have whole-home surge protection, here is why you should invest in it.
Protect Your Technology
Modern homes have more electronic devices and equipment than they ever had before. Home appliances have circuit boards, which need to be protected from surges. LED light bulbs also have sensitive microcircuit boards that a wave can easily compromise. Whole-home surge protection can protect your home appliances and everyday electronics from malfunctioning.
Prevent Internal Surges
Most power surges are temporary and short and come from traditional home appliances like air conditioners. These small surges won’t cause significant damage but can degrade the performance of your electronics and devices over time. Whole-home surge protection can help deter that degradation and increase the lifespan of your appliances.
Layered Surge Protection
This can be beneficial if you have an elaborate home entertainment system or another expensive electronic setup. Other outlets may be compromised if an appliance surges through a shared circuit. This is one reason you don’t want your only surge protector to be at the circuit panel. A layered system can be connected directly to the electrical panel and at the point of use.
Protect Your Electric System
While your whole-home surge protector’s primary function is to prevent your home’s appliances and electronics from damage, it also protects your electric system. If a surge comes from a home appliance, the protector will send the wave back through the breaker panel to protect the other electrical equipment. Home surge protection provides suitable and efficient safeguards for your electrical system.
