What is a whole house surge protection?

Most homes today have high-tech appliances and expensive home entertainment systems. A power surge, or spike in voltage, can damage your items, or lead to an electrical fire. Installing a whole house surge protector could be one way to help prevent the damage. It does not matter how old or new your home is. All new appliances/electronics are made with circuit boards that control the functions of the items. Depending on which item takes a surge, the repair bill can range from a few hundred or several thousand dollars.
