Be Prepared for the Unexpected

The more power the better, right? Wrong!

When it comes to your electric, too much power can be dangerous. Power surges can damage your appliances and even cause electrical fires. But with the right surge protectors, you can control the power and stay safe through every power surge.

What Causes Power Surges?

If we could predict power surges, there’d be no need for surge protectors. But the truth is that power can spike at any given moment. The main causes of power surges are:

  • Downed power lines
  • Lightning
  • High-power electrical devices turning on or motors kicking in

Downed power lines are a more common cause for power surges than lightning. But when lightning does strike, no surge protector can offset the power of lightning. That’s why it’s important to unplug major appliances until the storm subsides.

When Do I Need a Surge Protector?

If your home or business uses several high-powered appliances, you’ll want to invest in surge protection. Some of these appliances include:

  • Computers
  • Televisions
  • Stereo systems
  • Exercise equipment
  • Refrigerators/freezers
  • Air conditioners

There’s no way of knowing beforehand whether your system can handle a power surge. That’s why it’s important to stay one step ahead with surge protection. Otherwise, you risk losing some of your most crucial home appliances and investments. And even worse, you risk the safety of you and your family.
