Whole House Surge Protection
Whole Home Surge Protection is very much needed! Especially in a new world of multiple electronic devices and appliances used to make life easier. Whole home surge protective devices are typically wired to the electrical panel to protect all the appliances and electrical systems in a home.
An electrical surge, or power surge, can follow any wire into a house — including incoming phone and cable/satellite dish lines. Once a surge enters your home, all of your plugged in appliances - including device charger left plugged in - are vulnerable to damage.
When installed properly on a home's panel, a whole home surge protector can help prevent or minimize damage to electronic devices, home appliances and other equipment in the event of electrical surges.
Mike Holmes, contractor and host of the television show “Holmes on Homes,” and Eaton Corporation offer a line of electrical surge protectors. “People never think it could happen, but it happened to me,” said Mike Holmes. “A large electrical surge entered my house and I lost all my electronics that were plugged in. All of them. The first thing I did after replacing everything was install an Eaton Complete Home Surge protector.”
