When a storm hits and the lights flicker or there is a quick power outage then within seconds the power comes back on, this scenario can cause a power spike.
This spike or surge of electricity can effect high current drawing appliances such as an air conditioner or the furnace blower motor.
Installing a whole house surge protector into the electric panel acts like a safety switch. During normal use, electricity passes through the protector, but if there is a spike in voltage, the protector will move the excess voltage into the ground wire, saving your appliances.
Whole house surge protectors will save the sensitive electronics in an air conditioner or furnace such as the compressor and circuit boards.
We still recommend using surge protection power strips on your computers and TV's along with a whole house protector.
