What is a surge protector?
A surge protector is an appliance designed to protect electrical devices from voltage spikes such as lightning strikes, and power outages. A surge protector attempts to limit the voltage supplied to an electric device by either blocking or by shorting to ground any unwanted voltages above a safe threshold.
Replacing equipment is neither easy nor inexpensive. Having a surge protection comes with many benefits:
- Reduces the loss of equipment due to voltage spikes
- Reduces equipment downtime
- Reduces maintenance costs
- Reduces electric bill
