Whole House Surge Protectors

24_7 Emergency Service

Florida, in the summer, thunderstorms occur almost every day. There are several reasons for that: it’s hot and humid and that leads to thunderstorm development. But perhaps the most important reason is all of the water surrounding the peninsula and the fact that sea breezes form on the Gulf Coast and on the Atlantic coast almost every day. As the Gulf of Mexico sea breeze moves eastward, it acts like a mini-cold front and thunderstorms develop along it. As the Atlantic sea breeze moves westward, it also acts like a mini cold front and thunderstorms develop along it. Those sea breezes can converge or meet in central Florida and when that happens the storms can really get nasty and last for a number of hours. Of course for there to be thunderstorms, there must be thunder and when there is thunder, there must have been lightning and in Florida there is plenty of it almost every day from late May through September.

Our homes are filled with sensitive electronics and your Air Conditioning unit is one of the most expensive appliances in your home. These devices are easily damaged by common power surges in your electrical, telephone, and cable lines. It only takes a lightning storm near your home to create a high-energy electrical surge that can enter your house and destroy your air conditioner, appliances, TVs, stereo equipment and almost all other modern electrical products.

How much can you afford to lose?

Don’t limit your protection to only a surge strip, protect the entire home

  • Televisions
  • Personal computers
  • Stereo systems
  • Entertainment centers
  • Stoves, refrigerators, dishwashers, and other countertop appliances
  • Microwaves
  • Air conditioners
  • Washers and dryers
  • Garage door openers

Surge Protection works at your meter to block dangerous surges and protect your major appliances. You may also choose to add protection for computers and other electronics by purchasing plug-in strips.

Protection that starts at your meter.

A meter-base protector blocks the largest, most damaging surges before they reach your home’s interior wiring.

Provides outstanding protection for refrigerators, dishwashers, HVAC systems and other appliances.

Optional protection for electronics.

The meter-base protector does not fully protect computers and other electronics.

These items are easily damaged by even the small surges that can slip past the meter-base protector or by surges that enter through phone, cable and satellite wiring.

Therefore, we recommend that electronics be protected separately by plug-in protector strips.
