We’ve all got surge protecting strip plugs on pretty much everything these days. From entertainment systems to computers, your home’s electronics need protection. So that means a few strip plugs and you’re done, right? Not so fast, according to This Old House magazine. There is a better way to protect everything in your home; a whole home surge protector.
Peace of Mind
The Insurance Information Institute tracks claims made from power surges and their numbers will astonish you. In 2016, the Institute shows over 100,000 claims based on power surges, with the average cost per claim coming in at $7,571.90. If you can’t afford to take that kind of loss, you’ll want to consider whole home protection.
If you invest in this protection, the next time you experience a power loss or a lightning storm, you won’t have to wonder if everything will be alright. You’ll be able to rest easy knowing you have an added line of protection in your home.
If you’ve ever had a surge come through your home, you know your surge protecting power strips generally die after one surge. That means replacing them every time it happens. If you have a whole home system, it can last for several years and stand up to several surges that would otherwise fry your electronics.
