Today, homes are filled with sensitive electronics that are easily damaged by common power surges, spikes or voltage impulses. A lightning storm near a residence can deliver a high energy electrical surge that can enter a home and destroy appliances, televisions, stereo equipment, and other electrical products.
The cost of replacing electronic equipment in an average home is approximately $8,000. This figure can easily top $20,000 if the homeowner has a sophisticated entertainment system, or a home office.
Hi-Lite Electric recommends that to fully protect your investment, consider a 2-stage approach to Surge Protection.
Stage 1 – Primary Protection for Service Entrance.
Stage 2 – Secondary Protection at Point of Use.
By installing 2 stages of surge protection, your electronic equipment can be protected from most power surges, spikes and voltage impulses that are common everyday.
Do not underestimate an unchecked high voltage surge than can wipe out your investment instantly, or the smaller everyday surges that can degrade the electronic components in your home slowly over time.
