Surge Protection

Today, homes are filled with sensitive electronics such as DVD players, satellite TV, video games, stereo systems, and personal computers that are easily damaged by common power surges, spikes or voltage impulses.

The electronic circuitry is getting more dense and compact, making the circuitry more vulnerable to damage from power surges.  Equipment and appliances are becoming more interconnected with one another and more connections will be made with phone lines and coax cable lines.  Electric utility companies are deregulating at a time when there will be more demand for electrical power.  All this increases the chances of damage from power surges.

A lightning storm near a residence can deliver a high energy electrical surge that can enter a home and destroy appliances, televisions, stereo equipment, and other electrical products.

The cost of replacing electronic equipment in an average home is $8,000. This figure can easily top $20,000 if the homeowner has a sophisticated entertainment system, or a home office.
ElectricMedic recommends that to fully protect your investment, consider a 2-stage approach to Surge Protection.

Stage 1 - Primary Protection At Service Entrance
Stage 2 - Secondary Protection at Point of Use

By installing 2 stages of surge protection, your electronic equipment can be protected from most power surges, spikes and voltage impulses that are common every day.

Do not underestimate an unchecked high voltage surge that can wipe out your investment instantly, or the smaller everyday surges that can degrade the electronic components in your home slowly over time.
