A power surge may only last for nanoseconds, but it can cause significant damage to your Tucson, Arizona, home. A power strip may protect your smaller electronics, but you’ll need whole-home surge protection to defend your entire home. It works with your entire electrical system to safeguard you against power surges large and small.
What’s the Difference Between a Power Strip and a Whole-Home Surge Protector?
A power strip and a whole-home surge protector both protect your home but in different ways. A whole-home surge protector, for example, will protect all of your lights, hard-wired items, motors, and outlets from power surges, while a power strip only protects the electronics that are plugged into the strip. While a power strip is plugged into an outlet and can only protect a limited number of electronics, we can install a whole-home surge protector directly into your electrical panel. It will guard your entire electrical system, including HVAC systems, appliances, and more.
Benefits of a Whole-Home Surge Protector
A whole-home surge protector offers a host of benefits that plug-in power strips just can’t match. It will safeguard everything plugged into your electrical system, protecting your home from random surges in the grid. You can have peace of mind knowing your food, the data on your computer, and your home security system are all protected.
A whole-home surge protector will also save you money in the long run. The majority of surges are generally small. However, they can wear down your appliances over time, resulting in frequent repairs and high utility bills.
Safeguard your home with a whole-home surge protector, and you’ll also cultivate peace of mind and greater energy efficiency. To have one installed by our team, call MVP Heating & Air Conditioning at (520) 462-2590.
