Understanding The Importance Of Home Protection Devices



Electronics aren’t cheap these days and we would hate to see them go up in smoke. With our surge protection devices, we can make sure that your electronic devices are protected and operate safely. This way, you can enjoy peace of mind with your financial investments on home electronics.

There are 53,600 fires and $1.4 billion in property losses every year in the United States from electrical fires. Often times, these fires and losses can be prevented if proper maintenance and operation of your electronic devices takes place.

Portable generators are a wonderful resource to have in times of bad storms or power outages to keep your electronics running. However, they can pose a serious threat if used improperly. NEVER plug the generator into a wall outlet! If connecting to your home’s wiring, have a qualified electrician install a manual transfer switch to prevent backfeed into the lines. The switch will protect against damage to your generator, wiring and appliances when power is restored.

It is a common misconception that lightning is the only thing that can cause a power surge. While it is true that lightning can cause a surge, the main culprit can be any of your electronic devices that require lots of power to operate. As a result, it’s important to use surge protectors and home protection devices in any instance where electricity is used to power your electronic devices.
