Surge Protection Outlet

The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) estimates that economic losses caused by power disturbances represent more than 1 percent of the U.S. GDP, literally billions of dollars annually. The financial risks for residences can run into thousands of dollars.
Among the most common and critical problems are brief over-voltage disturbances commonly called surges or voltage transients. Though some surges are caused by lightning, NEMA estimates that 60-80% of surges are created within a facility, usually by devices that switch power on and off, for example Heating and Air Conditioning systems. Surges can damage, degrade, or destroy critical microprocessor-based equipment common in today's businesses and homes.
