Surge Protection Products

 

Residential


Each year transient voltage surges impinging on home wiring and electrical/electronic devices are responsible for over $500 million in US residential property insurance claims and an even higher amount of European residential insurance claims. Over half of all residential losses related to transients can be directly attributed to the repair or replacement of TVs, stereo systems, home office equipment, kitchen appliances, home security systems, satellite receivers, garage door openers, and laundry equipment.

While about 20% of all electrical problems are the result of external events such as lightning, and utility grid switching actions, over 80% are caused by events occurring inside of the house. Automatic events such as the air-conditioner kicking on, or the refrigerator compressor turning on to keep the refrigerator cold as well as simple homeowner actions such as turning the lights on and off can cause transient voltages. Over time these transient voltage surges degrade and/or destroy electronics. How long it takes a surge to degrade your precious electrical/electronic possessions depends on the size and source of the surges. If lightning is the source then a large portion of your electronics (perhaps even all) can receive major damage or be destroyed in well under a second. While normal air conditioning cycling can take several years to degrade your other electronics enough to cause their failure. Even though you cannot see, or hear the attack and may not even realize it is happening; your stereo system, home computer, television, VCR, microwave oven everything with internal electronic circuits -- are under siege all day every day. The attacks are silent, but destructive. Further, surges do more than destroy appliances and electronics, they degrade and/or ruin electrical outlets, light switches, light bulbs, air conditioner components, and garage door openers.

How can you protect yourself? Individuals seeking to preserve their hard earned money, prevent damage to their precious consumer electronics, and prevent insurance claims that can raise their insurance rates plus will cost them their deductible should call their local Total Protection Solutions distributor today.
