If you have ever had a power surge rush through your home or office, you know that heart stopping feeling of checking to see if your computers and other electrical systems are intact of if they have been damaged beyond repair. If you have no protection against power surges, you know how it feels to run around and try to unplug everything you can when a bad storm rolls in. The problem with this method of dealing with power surges is that you have to actually be at the home or office to do these system-saving tasks. You also have to realize you can’t predict a power surge under most circumstances; therefore even by being there, you can’t completely protect your home yourself. The best way to protect your home from the damage or even a fire from an electrical power surge is to install whole house power surge protection.
Buying multiple surge protection strips and having them strung all over your home is no long term solution for the average homeowner or business owner. They pose a risk in themselves. Fire is the biggest risk associated with surge protectors and power surges that can come out of nowhere. With whole house protection, the risks and damages associated with power surges will no longer be in the forefront of your mind. You can rest peacefully knowing that everything you have plugged in is protected whether you are right there to do anything or not. When you have so much time, energy and money invested in the electrical systems and devices that are a part of your daily life, why would you leave their protection to chance?
