Popular Questions

A surge protector, also known as a surge suppressor, is a device designed to protect electronic devices and electrical systems from power surges. It works by diverting excess voltage from surges away from connected devices and redirecting it to the ground. Surge protectors use specialized components, such as metal oxide varistors (MOVs), to absorb and dissipate the excess voltage, thereby preventing it from reaching your devices. 

Power surges, caused by lightning strikes, electrical grid fluctuations, or switching on/off high-power devices, can damage or destroy sensitive electronic equipment. Surge protectors act as a barrier, absorbing and redirecting excess voltage to protect your devices from potential damage. Installing surge protectors helps extend the lifespan of your electronics and provides peace of mind against unexpected power surges.

Surge protectors offer a degree of protection against lightning strikes, but they cannot guarantee complete protection. Direct lightning strikes can generate extremely high voltages that may overwhelm even the most robust surge protectors. However, surge protectors can effectively mitigate surges caused by lightning strikes occurring nearby or on the power grid, reducing the risk of damage to connected devices.

There are various types of surge protectors available, including point-of-use surge protectors, whole-house surge protectors, and surge protector power strips. Point-of-use surge protectors are designed to protect individual devices or appliances. Whole-house surge protectors are installed at the electrical panel and provide comprehensive protection for the entire electrical system. Surge protector power strips combine multiple outlets with surge protection capabilities.

Yes, surge protectors have a limited lifespan and should be replaced periodically. While surge protectors continue to provide basic power functionality even after their protection capability diminishes, it is important to replace them to maintain optimal protection. Most surge protectors come with an indicator light that signals when the protection capabilities have been exhausted or compromised. It is recommended to replace surge protectors every 2 to 5 years, or sooner if they have experienced a significant surge event.
