Save Thousands With Whole Home Surge Protection

Protect your investments with whole house surge protection

Surge protective devices (SPDs) can prevent damage to appliances and electronics in your home when there is a temporary voltage spike which can travel throughout your entire electrical, phone, network and/or cable system.

Square D™ Whole Home Surge Protection blocks the shock caused by surges at the load center, so you can rest assured your electronics are protected.

Why Use Surge Protection?

Homes today have an estimated $15,000 worth of electronics and may experience up to 100 surges per month that can degrade or damage your electronics, shortening their life.

People often think of power strips when they hear "surge protection". Commonly used as an extension to outlets, many power strips offer no surge suppression at all. Others only offer low-level surge suppression, leaving them powerless to block appliance-damaging surges.

When surge protection is installed at the electrical panel, it helps protect all the devices in the home, including those that are not plugged into a surge plug strip.

    Surge Protection FAQs

    • What is a surge?

      Surges, or “transient voltages” occur when there is a temporary voltage spike which travels throughout your entire electrical, phone, network and or cable system. These can be externally generated (weather and utilities) or internally generated from devices inside the home, which is the more common type of surge. Up to 100 of these surges can occur per month!

    • Why should I care about surge protection?

      Some power surges can present enough strength to immediately contribute to severe damage, if not destroy, electronics. Surges occur regularly, wearing down and shortening the life of electronics and appliances.

    • How do surge protection devices work?

      When a surge protective device senses a transient voltage spike, it uses internal components called Metal Oxide Varistors (MOVs) that act like magnets for the excess voltage, and sends it to the load center’s ground wire before it can reach your home’s connected electronics.

    • What about surge protection warranties?

      When researching your surge protector, consider the warranty. Some models include a connected equipment coverage. This means that you could be reimbursed up to the warranty limit should your electronics ever become damaged by a power surge.

      Square D gives you peace of mind, with warranties up to 5 years and $100,000 in connected equipment.
