– Do you live in an area prone to lightning strikes
– Do you live in an area prone to brown outs or black outs
– Do you burn up electronics or have electrical equipment or appliances that go bad occasionally (burning up furnace circuit boards)
– When the power goes out and then comes back on that causes surges
Surges can come from a variety of places, and are a sudden increase in power that flows through the wires in your home or business. Surges can cause damage to TV’s, audio equipment, alarm systems, computers, phones, furnaces, air conditioners, fridges, washing machines, stoves, dishwashers, microwaves, and anything else plugged in. A whole house surge protector can prevent this.
