How Surge Protectors Could Save Your Home

How Surge Protectors Could Save Your Home

Update Your Surge Protection Before It’s Too Late

Springtime is a special time of year in Virginia Beach. As the days begin to get longer and the weather gets warmer, citizens of Virginia Beach begin to shed their layers and head outside to soak up the sun, sand, and (eventually) surf. Though springtime means a lot of good things for the people of this area, it also means that thunderstorms once again present a hazard to your home. Lightning strikes, electrical surges, and outages, and added static can all wreak havoc on your home’s electrical system, and can even make your home unsafe to be in. To protect yourself and your family this spring, be sure to update your home’s surge protection.

Types of Surge Protection

Many people equate surge protectors with bulky and invasive strips that are installed between an outlet and the devices that are plugged into it. While these types of surge protectors are fairly effective, they can be annoying to install and unsightly to look at. Plus, for many people, these devices only protect one or two devices at a time, so many are needed to fully protect a home. Entire home surge protectors are a wonderful idea for many families. Though they need to be professionally installed, they can handle several big surges over their lifetime. They also provide comprehensive damage protection to your home’s outlets, providing peace of mind for your electronics and appliances. These systems are a wonderful option if your home has a lot of expensive electronics such as high-end game consoles, expensive computers, or other smart home systems that would likely be damaged in the event of a power surge.
