What causes power surges and power spikes?

Power surges and power spikes can occur at any time, not just when the power is restored after an outage.  Surges and spikes can also results from lightning strikes, downed power lines, and even your household appliances. 
Why do I need special protection for my home?

Electronics are becoming increasingly sophisticated and utilize
technology that was not even conceived of, just five years ago. 
Items including televisions, stereos, modems, microwave,
home computers, VCR’s and telephone systems area
damaged by 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 whole house protection device protect?

 The whole house device is the first stage.  It will help protect household appliances. It has lifetime warranty and a connected equipement warranty on up to $10 000 - $50 000 of connected equipment. 
The second stage is the plug-in surge suppressor 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 protection units offer very little protections and the circuits are prone to quick failure.    


Note : While surge protectors will protect against surges generated when lightning strikes nearby, no surge arrester can guard against a direct hit.  The energy is too great.


Our surge strips and protectors have a Lifetime Warranty and
are not available in stores.
