A surge protector is a device that can be installed at your main service panel or at each piece of equipment to be protected.
The main function of a surge protector is to protect electrical devices from power surges. Surges can be caused by lightning strikes, local power grid activity, and even the cycling of a high energy electrical device. Over time small and large surges can take a toll on electrical devices decreasing the life expectancy and often damaging your expensive equipment.
When surges occur, unsafe levels of current are redirected through the surge protector and out through your home's grounding system, away from your sensitive equipment. No device is 100% fail proof against all surges. Surge protectors installed with each piece of equipment or whole house coverage can definitely extend the life of your electrical equipment.
