Surges are sudden and unexpected spikes in voltage that travel throughout your homes electrical system, which can cause serious damages and unwanted expenses. Without surge protection, your valuable electronics are vulnerable.
Some surges come from within your own home, such as turning on a dryer or sending a document to your printer. Other surges come from outside your home, as in electric utility switching, downed power poles, cut power lines and lightning strikes. Surge can even enter through cable televisions and telephone wiring.
For example, if lightning struck a Miami or Ft Lauderdale home or business; or somewhere around it, a surge may go through the electrical system and anything that is plugged in or connected may get fried, whether it is turned on or off. Homeowners and business owners end up having to pay out of pocket to replace these appliances and equipment.
Most Miami, Coral Gables, Pinecrest & Palmetto Bay homes and businesses have some type of expensive electronic equipment in it. For example, kitchen appliances, home theater, computers and more, which are vulnerable to power surges. These items can be protected with a surge protector. Additionally, entertainment equipment and computers can be protected with a surge bar. Some of these affordable surge protectors come with a lifetime warranty and cover the appliances.
