Sometimes homeowners underestimate a surge – an electrical surge will follow any wire into a house — including your phone and cable lines, televisions, satellite systems, computers, and modems. Don’t forget about your plugged in appliances, they aren’t exempt from a electrical surge’s wrath. A power surge may last for only a few millionths of a second, but at its worst, it carries tens of thousands of volts, enough to fry circuit boards, crash hard drives and home-entertainment systems. A lightning strike has to be less than a mile from the house to cause harm, and in fact most surge-related damage is not caused by lightning. Far more common, though not as dramatic, are surges caused by downed power lines or sudden changes in electricity. The damage inflicted by these minor power fluctuations can be instantaneous — but may not show up for some time.
A simple surge protector installed at your panel box could save you thousands of dollars in replacement cost and countless hours of dealing with insurances.

If you are like me, a surge protector is the long strip you plug 1,200 different plugs into. Well, maybe not 1,200 but you see what I mean. A surge protector is a convenient way for me to plug in my TV, Satellite box, PlayStation, Wii, Sound bar, etc. While that is a useful device, this is not what their main purpose, who knew?
A surge protector is a device that shields computers and other electronic devices in the event of an electric power flow from the power supply. In the video below you will see how the strip surge protectors saved homeowners appliances and electronics. But, did you ever stop and think about your AC Unit, your furnace, your sub pump, stoves, refrigerators and so on?
