A surge protector will keep all of your electronics, appliances and other valuable assets that plug into the wall safe during a power outage. Surges are commonly caused by lightning, short circuits and even tripped circuit breakers.
If your computer and other electronic equipment are not plugged into a surge protector, a lightning strike could easily wipe out all of your saved files and information. Some of the most common benefits of surge protection:
Consistent Power. Proper protection provides a consistent power supply without damaging interruptions, whether that be a flicker in the power or a full-on surge.
Reduced Maintenance. The protection your electronics, appliances and even your furnace get from surge protection equipment helps to reduce the maintenance and repair costs throughout the year.
Cost and Energy Efficiency. Surge protectors transmit power evenly which typically results in a savings on the monthly electricity bill.
Surge protectors, which cost more and provide more protection than a typical power strip, allow you to plug multiple appliances into the same unit, just like a power strip.
Use a separate surge protection strip for the different types of electronics and appliances you want to protect. You can group them together in likeness: for example, plug your washer, dryer, and furnace into one and plug your stereo, computer and television into another.
