    Why Should I Invest in a Surge Protector?

    Georgia’s electrical storms are legendary. Investing in a whole house surge protector is a smart way to protect your electronics and appliances from storm damage. In the event of an electrical surge, this one device prevents all your other devices from getting toasted.

    You might think those surge protectors you use with your entertainment center and home office electronics offer all the protection you need. But surge suppression strips don’t actually offer much protection. We bet you also don’t know that they wear out quickly and need replacement every few years.

    Here are a few more reasons why you should instead invest in a whole home surge protector:

    • Whole home surge protectors offer far stronger protection than surge suppression strips. These devices will let in only the electricity your home really needs. They also last far longer than surge suppression strips.
    • A good electrician can easily install a whole-home surge protector. The device wires into your home’s existing electrical panel. No need to rewire anything or drill holes into your walls.
    • It’s surprising just how cost-effective whole-home surge protectors are. Depending on the size you need, you should only expect to pay about $200-500, plus installation, for your new surge protector.
