Things to Know About Whole Home Surge Protectors

Electrical surges can be damaging to your electronics and your home—destroying items in your home. Surges can also have disastrous effects on your air conditioning unit, which for many people is the most expensive appliance to replace. With a whole home surge protector, these surges no longer have to be a constant concern.

A good home surge protector allows in electricity that your home needs and protects it from unruly over-voltages. More and more homebuilders are offering whole-house surge protection as a standard addition, in order to protect homeowner’s electronic systems. If you want to protect your electronics, investing in a whole home protector is a smart decision.

Things to think about when deciding about home surge protectors:

  • Homes are in need of house surge protection more than ever. More than any time in history, our homes are filled with valuable electronics—televisions, washers, laptops, appliances, cellphone chargers, AC units—which are all in danger from over-voltages.

  • Outside factors and surges are only a small part of the problem. 80% of all surges are generated within our own homes, not from events like downed power lines. Generators and motors like those in air conditioning units create small surges in your house’s electrical lines.

  • Using surge strips is not an effective solution to surges in your home. Home surge protectors are built to handle large surges and can last for years. When trying to protect your utilities, especially your expensive air conditioning unit, purchasing whole-house protection can save you time and money in the long run.

  • It’s always better to be safe than sorry. Even if your home is not susceptible to lots of surges, getting a protector could save you lots of money. In the event of a surge happening, a whole home protector would protect your expensive electronics and keep them from being destroyed and you from having to replace them.
