Invest in Surge Suppressor for entire house

Question: We have many electronic gadgets in our house and I am concerned about a voltage surge ruining them. Are there whole-house surge suppressors which will protect everything electric in our house?

Answer: People often think of only electronic gadgets such as computers, game consoles and audio/visual items, as being at risk from electrical surges.

Actually, nearly every electric item in a house today has some sort of sensitive electronics which can be damaged by a surge. These include ranges, dishwashers, air conditioners, fans, etc.

A very common source of an electrical surge is a thunder storm. The voltage and current spikes from a lightning strike are enormous.

Some of these smaller surges can even be generated by your own vacuum cleaner, refrigerator compressor, or clothes washer motors in your house wiring.

There are several types of whole-house surge suppressors available. Some mount on the circuit breaker panel indoors or are built into a circuit breaker.
