Prevent Electronics Damage with a Surge Protection Plan

by ripleypr on October 18, 2016

When it comes to weather in Roanoke, VA, being prepared for the unexpected is a great rule of thumb for area residents. October weather can be chilly in the morning, followed by potential thunderstorms before the end of the day! With the changeable weather at the top of everyone’s mind, it’s important for Roanoke homeowners to prevent electronics damage in their home by having a surge protection plan in place.

At Southern Trust Home Services, we have surge protection options that will protect your entire home from unpredictable power variations that could harm the delicate electronics in your appliances, electronics and other plug-in devices in your home. Today’s newer homes may offer surge protection as an option, but most surge protection systems incorporate into homes may not be able to handle power surges that can affect more systems and appliances than ever before. Surge Protection Plan from Southern Trust

Power surges happen all the time, and store-bought, plug-in surge protection outlets do not protect the biggest appliances in your home. The newer washers, dryers and refrigerators are outfitted with increasingly delicate electronics and older homes may not have the proper level of surge protection included to protect your home’s most important electrical components.  This Old House’s website offers a great explanation about how a surge protection plan works for homeowners.

A whole house surge protection plan from Southern Trust help protect your home and electronics by:

  1. Protecting your electronics with circuit boards from suffering damage during a major surge or outage
  2. Preventing the small surges that happen every day from doing long-term damage to your electronics, appliances and internal systems
  3. Blocking surges from damaging the wiring throughout the home that is susceptible, before any harm can be done
  4. Eliminating the potential for electrical fires and accidental electrocution

Southern Trust are the Roanoke, VA experts in whole house surge protection and we have protected hundreds of homes in the Roanoke area. Only an expert in electric wiring should install your surge protection systems, and only an expert can explain the differences in the options and recommend the best type for your home. Contact Southern Trust to schedule an appointment today to learn about the surge protection options we offer to assist you in protecting your home!
