What Is a Surge Protector?
When people think of a “surge protector,” they usually imagine a power strip with several devices. Surge protectors work by transferring electricity from the outlet to the devices plugged into the power strip. A surge or spike in power above the designated level causes the surge protector to automatically redirect the “extra” electricity into metal oxide varistors (MOVs) inside the power strip. Unfortunately, household power strips offer limited device protection and usually need to be replaced after a single power surge.
They protect all the appliances and devices in the home that receive power from the electrical panel they’re wired to. Whole-house surge protection devices are a smart way to keep all your sensitive electronics and valuable appliances safe from electrical surge damage. Surge protectors are installed directly into your electrical panel.

Electrical System Protection
Although the primary function of a whole-house surge protector is to prevent home appliances and electronics from damage, it also protects your entire electrical system. When a short surge comes from your home appliance on a particular circuit, it sends the surge back via the breaker panel and is then shunted.
Protection Against Power Surges
In an unprecedented event like a hurricane, ice storm, or severe thunderstorm, electricity is usually the first thing to go. A whole-home generator protects your home against blackouts and power surges that would otherwise leave you in the dark – often for days.
