The lifespan of your refrigeration, water heater and new home theater may be at risk. You may not realize it, but there's a good chance the electrical appliances in your home are being slowly "shocked to death" by invisible electrical surges pulsating through your power line. It could be happening as you sit at your computer reading this.
Every electrical home appliance is at risk. Your TV. Stereo. Computer. Home theater. DVD player. Toaster oven. Air conditioner. Furnace. Stove. Refrigerator. Freezer. Clothes washer. Anything that’s "plugged in" inside your home.
Every day appliances are zapped by an average of 20 power surges. These surges are power fluctuations that go unnoticed except by your appliances. The end result can shorten appliance lifespan by as much as 30%. That’s like paying full price for an appliance, then getting to use 2/3 of what you paid for.
In a worst case scenario, a lighting strike as far as a mile away can send 300,000 amps of electricity surging through your home’s wiring. All it takes is one bolt of lightning to fry a house full of electronics in seconds – instant burnout! Even without a major electrical storm, there are plenty of other causes of power surge damage.
