You may ask: Why do I need special protection from surges?
Electronics are becoming increasingly sophisticated and utilize technology that was not even conceived of just five years ago. Items like the ones listed above are damaged be even small voltage changes. Part of the danger is that the damage from small surges can add up over time and may eventually shorten the life of your equipment or even destroy it.
What does a Surge Device protect?
The whole house device is the first stage. It will help protect household appliances. It has up to a 5 year warranty and protects up to $75,000 of connected equipment. The second stage is the plug in surge strips to protect smaller appliances and sensitive electronic equipment. As long as you have both stages, you are getting the best protection available. As with just about everything, there is a high end and a low end to surge protectors, and you typically get what you pay for. Low-end surge protectors offer very little protection, and the circuits are prone to quick failure. Our surge strips have a lifetime warranty and are not available in stores.
