Florida homeowners are no strangers to storms and power outages and power surges occurring during a storm can seriously damage your electronics and appliances. Ensure you and your loved ones are safe by being proactive with a whole house surge protector.
Why you need surge protection in Florida
Power surges are very frequent in Florida. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Florida is considered the “lightning capital” of the United States, with more lightning strikes per year than any other state.
While power surges can also be caused by other factors such as electrical grid instability, downed power poles, faulty wiring, and power outages, the stormy tendency of Florida makes Tampa and surrounding areas more prone to needing a surge protection device.
Benefits of surge protection
Surge protection benefits are numerous. By installing such systems in your home, you can protect your electronics and home appliances, prevent data loss, and reduce equipment failures.
In addition, you save money by protecting expensive equipment such as washers, televisions, and computers from damage.
How surge protection works
Surge protection breakers divert excess voltage away from your electronics and home appliances. Generally installed between your equipment and the power source, surge protection breakers absorb the excess voltage to protect your appliances from power surges generated by power outages, lightning strikes, electrical panel failure, and more.
With a whole house surge protection device installed, you’ll be able to protect your home’s appliances and electronics as well as save you money for years to come. Stay safe. Choose surge protection.
