Why Surge Protection

Electrical surges are sudden and unexpected spikes in voltage that travel throughout electrical systems. These surges can be internal as well as external. These electrical disturbances can ruin or severely damage the performance of any or all of the electrical systems in your home—TV’s, stereo systems, fax, audio/video, computers, phones, printers —the list is endless


Internal surges can come from printing a document, turning on a vacuum or carpet cleaner, or even plugging in a radio. External surges are more unexpected, downed power poles, cut power lines, utility switching, lightning strikes.
