There are several sources of power surges. They can originate from outside the home, during power grid switching and overvoltages on utility lines, or from inside your home, such as when turning on and off large appliances.
Although large power surges from sources such as lightning and downed power lines are fairly uncommon, small power surges occur every single day the electrical system is used. These small, but frequent power surges can deteriorate electronic items and shorten their lifespans.
Protect your home with the latest surge protection. This will prevent catastrophe from wreaking havoc on your entire home wiring and appliances.
Modern power supplies are exceeding those of ten years ago. Don’t get stuck with an underperforming surge protector.
SPD’S (Whole Home Surge Protector)
Whole-house surge protection devices (SPDs) are the best defense against power surges of any magnitude. They are typically connected to a home’s electrical service box but located in a more convenient location for easy accessibility. Modern surge protectors use metal oxide varistors (MOVs) to shunt power surges.
While point-of-use surge protectors are better than nothing, they probably can’t shunt large surges from external sources, such as lighting and other high-energy surges. For damage from direct lightning strikes, you will need a professional to install your whole home surge protector.
Though MOVs in common surge strips can be destroyed after a powerful surge, the ones used in whole-house systems are made to shunt large surges and last for years. Modern homes with expensive electrical systems often come standard with whole-home surge protectors as an added safety feature.
