How do you ensure that all the electronics in your home are protected in the event of a surge? Surge protectors only help the devices plugged in to them, and beyond that their surge absorption rating is low, so they might only be good for a few years. Get the assured and dependable protection of a Whole Home Surge Protector and rest confident that your home is covered, appliances and all!
Like it or not, digital technology has permeated just about every industry, and the volume of electronic devices in your home is likely way more than you realize. First to mention are Blu-ray and DVD players, audio and home theater equipment, TVs, satellite receivers, alarm systems, and computer equipment (including routers, modems, and printers). Add to the list all the stuff with an electronic control board inside—such as your furnace, central vacuum, washer and dryer. Don’t forget to include just about everything in your kitchen from the microwave to your range, fridge, toaster, and every other gadget with a power cord living on your counter.
Sure, we all know electronics have a pretty high rate of depreciation, but it’s the replacement costs and inconvenience that really count when they do fail. Can you do a quick tally of the replacement value of all those electronic items in your head. No? Well allow us to help you out. A basic 20 year old home with normal appliances, audio, computer and heating equipment could be estimated between $10,000 – $20,000 in replacement costs. Sound far-fetched? Think about the replacement cost of your iPhone ($700) or iPad ($500) or laptop ($800) plugged in at your desk right now, then add on an appliance or two and you’ll begin to see the bigger picture.
