Modern offices and residences present an array of costly and disruptive
electrical problems. 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.
