Multiple layers of protection are necessary to safeguard your sensitive appliances and electronic devices. You’ve invested a great deal of money in them - now you need to protect them.</p> <h3>Surge protectors and power conditioners: Here they come to save the day!</h3> <ul><li><strong>Your primary line of defense: The <a href="http://www.33pulse.com/surge-protection">whole house surge protector </a></strong></li> </ul><p>Whole house surge protection, installed between street power lines and your home, or between your meter and breaker box, offer your appliances the protection they need against today’s common but unexpected spikes and surges. Diverting excess power to ground, these devices protect both your electronics and your wallet from the dangers of spikes and surges that could leave you with smoking gear and a hefty replacement bill.</p> <ul><li><strong>The dynamic duo: Point-of-use surge protectors with<a href="http://www.33pulse.com/home-energy-savings"> power conditioners </a></strong></li> </ul><p>Because a whole house surge protector cannot handle 100 percent of surges, you need backup. That’s where point-of-use surge protection devices with power conditioners come in. Installed at individual outlets in your home, these devices also shed excess voltage through ground in the event a spike or surge overcomes your whole house surge protector. They also have the added benefit of noise filtering. There are two types: less expensive models that are destroyed internally – but preserve your gear – in the event of a surge, and more expensive models that can handle all but the most extreme surges without destruction.</p> <h3>It’s electricity – why does it need a “noise filter”?</h3> <p>Have you ever been watching TV or listening to the radio when someone in an adjacent room operates a blender or vacuum? Oftentimes the result will be static on your TV or an annoying buzz emitting from speakers courtesy of “noise” transmitted through the electrical lines in your home. That’s where a power conditioner comes in.</p> <h3>Is this the same as a power strip?</h3> <p>Those cheap $20 power strips from your local retail store are not the same as a surge protector with a power conditioner. While cheaper, this is definitely an instance where you get what you pay for - a couple extra outlets and some minor surge protection. In the event of a major event, however, they can fail your appliances and sometimes catch fire. Premium, point-of-use surge protection with power conditioning not only adequately protects your appliances from surges, but also:</p> <ul><li>Filters incoming electrical current and cleans it to provide the correct voltage, allowing electronics to operate safely.</li> <li>Prevents minor drops and disturbances in the power supply to your electronics and appliances that can result in reduced efficiency, higher energy bills and shortened lifespan.</li> <li>Offers filtration between components plugged into the same power conditioner.</li> </ul><p>Protect your gear and run at peak performance with help from the perfect team.

Seventy percent of U.S. power outages are attributable to severe weather, with winter months producing a host of storms that can result in outages and subsequent surges. Power surges are now more troublesome than ever, as homeowners now own a much wider array of this sophisticated and expensive electronic equipment.</p> <h2>How does a winter power surge happen?</h2> <ul><li>Sudden spikes and drops in power from use and repairs.</li> <li>Arcing from damaged power lines.</li> <li>Electrical repairs to power lines and poles downed by ice and falling trees, causing a power surge into the grid.</li> <li>Strong winds from winter storms causing wires to come into contact with one another.</li> <li>Rolling blackouts due to increases in heat consumption.</li> <li>Trees branches or animals conducting energy between live wires.</li> </ul><h2>Surge Suppressor Safety</h2> <p>A surge protector offers your sensitive electronics protection in the event of power surge or spike. Those looking for additional support may want to consider an?uninterruptable?power supply (UPS) as well, which offers surge protection plus the added benefit of a battery backup, allowing for the safe shutdown of equipment and prevention of data loss in the event of an outage.</p> <h2>Types of Surge Protectors</h2> <p>Multiple layers of surge protection coverage are required for complete protection. Even whole house surge protectors cannot handle 100 percent of surges. While all three levels are recommended, the combination of Type 2 and 3 devices will provide an adequate safeguard, however.</p> <ul><li>Type 1:<br /> Whole house protection between street power lines and your home.</li> <li>Type 2:<br /> Whole house protection between the meter and breaker box.</li> <li>Type 3?:<br /> Point-of-use protection at wall outlets in your home.</li> </ul><h2>Only as Good as Your Grounding</h2> <p>Without a properly grounded home and outlets, even the best surge protector will fail to protect your home. Why? Surge protectors shed all that excess voltage through ground. Have your home inspected for grounding issues prior to installation to ensure effective surge protection and prevent the need for replacing expensive electronics due to failure.</p> <h2>A Sobering Look at the Numbers</h2> <p>Adding surge protection to your home costs very little in comparison to the replacement cost of your electronics. Protection at outlets runs as little as $10, while whole house protections costs a few hundred. Sound like a lot? The cost of replacing a single large home appliance such as a washer, dryer, stove, or hot water heater will likely cost you double the investment in a surge protector. Start adding in iPhones, tablets, e-readers, laptops or other devices in your home that could be destroyed by a surge while charging and the numbers are nauseating. This is why the average insurance claim for power surge and lighting related damage is over $4,000, not to mention the inconvenience of living without those electronics until replacements are procured, making the costs of installing a surge protector a drop in the bucket.</p> <p>Can you afford to live without surge protection?
