Avoiding Costly Electrical Repair With Surge Protection
There are two main types of surge protection: point of use or whole house surge protection. Both of them help regulate the voltage supplied to an electric device by blocking or shorting dangerously high voltage levels.
A point of use device protects important electronics and appliances at their individual electric source. These surge suppressors typically plug straight into the wall and can manage up to 6,000-volt surges.
A whole house surge protection device, which is installed at the main electrical panel itself, protects the entire home against passing surges coming through the home’s main electricity supply.
