Power spikes and surges can occur many times throughout the day, potentially causing damage to valuable electronics throughout the home. Spikes may originate from a number of sources, including within home when major appliances turn-on, static electricity, power fluctuations and worst of all, lightning. Many homeowners believe that adequate surge protection begins and ends with plugging a few selected devices into a surge protected power strip. Unfortunately, that’s seldom the case. Many other valuable devices such as high-end entertainment centers, HVAC pumps/temp controllers, general electronic devices, large appliances, security systems, and even solar systems are left vulnerable to irreparable or costly damage.
PowerShield creates an additional layer of protection by funneling spikes and surges to a neutral ground line thus minimizing potential damage to valuable home electronics and equipment.
