Your computer, television and other important electronics are probably plugged into a point-of-use surge protector, but what about your larger, more expensive components like your refrigerator, air conditioner and heater?
Almost every electronic device in your home has a microprocessor, from your microwave and television all the way up to your air conditioner. Without adequate protection, power surges can destroy these microprocessors and render your electronics useless. The cost to replace each of these microprocessors is much more expensive than prevention with a simple, whole-home surge protector.
With a whole-home surge protector, all your outlets will be protected from external power surges. This includes:
Even with a whole-home surge protector, it is recommended you use plug-in surge protectors inside your home. The reason is simple: whole-home surge protectors protect your electronics from large power surges that originate outside your home (lightning, downed power lines, power plant problems, etc.)
Plug-in surge protectors protect your valuable electronics from smaller fluctuations in power that originate inside your home (such as when a large appliance turns on or off).
