Provide Your Electronic Devices Surge Protection From The Storm

Blog Bullet-e 50It’s that time of year when the Minnesota State High School Hockey and Basketball Tournaments get under way, spring training is going on in Florida and the college basketball tournament begins. If you’re a sports fan this is an exciting time and a good way to help pass the remaining winter. If you have invested your money on a nice flat screen television to watch March madness, remember to protect your investment by installing whole house surge protection at your electrical panel.

Installing a whole house surge protector at the electrical point of entrance to your home and utilizing point of use surge traps will prolong the life of your flat screen television and protect it against the normal everyday surges wreaking havoc on your system.

Electrical surges occur in every home multiple times everyday and come from various places in the electrical system. Due to the increased demand for power in the U.S., electrical spikes and poor power quality are a problem on the rise. Poor power quality from your utility will erode the motherboards in your washing machine, dryer, furnace, refrigerator and computer towers until they finally give out.

Without whole house surge protection, smaller devices like ipads, cell phones and flat screen televisions are caught in an electrical hailstorm without protection. Whole house surge protectors provide an all encompassing shelter to all of your electrical equipment at once by immediately submerging voltage spikes down to a level that is acceptable to your device. Get the most out of your flat screen television and have whole house surge protection installed on your next visit; you’ll be glad you did. 651.587.5512.
