    Surge protective devices 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 do you need surge protection?

    Modern homes 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.

    Smart appliances need protection

    From the fridge to the washer/dryer, smart appliances are computers. Surge protection strips only offer limited protection to the devices connected to them. Items that are not compatible with plug strips such as washers, dryers, refrigerators, stoves, and lighting can be protected with a whole home Surge Protective Device.

    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 & Utilities) or internally generated from devices inside the home, which is the more common type of surge. And up to 100 of these surges can occur per month!

    Why should I care?

    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.
