Have you noticed the incredible lighting shows we've had this summer?
Your home is full of electronics such as your refrigerator, oven, microwave, televisions, computers, chargers for smartphones, and on and on. These devices contain delicate circuit boards that can be easily damaged by a surge or a spike in the electrical grid.
In Calgary, most homeowners think that lighting or snow storms are rare so there is no need for a whole house surge protector. However, a power surge can occur when a high-power electrical device such as an air conditioner, space heater or power tool kicks on. It sends a spark along the electrical current which then transfers to the rest of the plugged-in devices in your home and damages them. Other more common causes include utility grid switching or other users on the power line.
You may think that an APC or power strip that plugs into a wall outlet is sufficient but these devices are not enough to stop large voltage spikes.
That’s why you need whole house surge protectors!
