Benefits of Surge Protection in Your Home
As digital technologies become more integrated into our everyday lives, homeowners need to be wary of getting burned— literally. The average residence receives more than 2,000 transient electrical surges each year, resulting in approximately $26 billion in total yearly losses for North American homes and businesses.
But it’s not just incoming power lines that can cause problems. Electrical surges can also be carried through phone and cable lines. And while individual jolts may not cause noticeable damage, over time, they can weaken the structure within the microchips that power many of your household devices, including televisions, stereos, DVD players, AV equipment, phones, video game systems and computers.
