It’s a technological world and we are just living in it. Take a moment to just count all of the electronic devices in your home: your television (or televisions as is probably the case), your computer, your DVD or Blu-ray player, and maybe a gaming system such as a PlayStation or Xbox. What it boils down to is hundreds, if not thousands of dollars’ worth of sensitive electronics, which could all be ruined in the blink of an eye.
While Maryland is not home to some of the most savage natural disasters around, we are no strangers to frequent thunder storms either, especially during the summer months. And, according to Air Conditioning, Heating & Refrigeration News, “Each home experiences 300-plus potentially damaging electrical surges per year.” It only takes one surge – to send your thousands of dollars’ worth of sensitive electronics up in smoke.
Surges are caused by several factors, not just lightning strikes, which are the most obvious sources of surges, but not the most frequent. That distinction goes to internal events, which are responsible for 65 to 80 percent of transient surges, according to a study conducted by General Electric (GE) and National Power Labs (NPL). The final threat to your home is utility events, such as crossover of phases, capacitor switching, grid shifting, inductive loads, and open neutrals.
The solution: Main Panel Surge Protection.
What is Main Panel Surge Protection?
When you hear the term “Surge Protection,” you probably envision those long white power strips you plug directly into an outlet. And you’re not wrong. These simple devices are a form of surge protection, but they are not the best form of surge protection. They are not enough to protect your entire home. For that, you need main panel surge protection, which protects the whole circuit box, not just individual circuits.
