OPPD’s Residential Surge Guard Protection can prevent damage to your electronic equipment, and it's backed by a $50,000 repair or replacement warranty.
While large surges can cause catastrophic damage, small surges can create minor damage that may go unnoticed, but still shorten the life of your valuable equipment. Power surges pose a greater threat to electronic equipment than most homeowners realize. Surges are sudden rises of voltage in electrical circuits, lasting only a few microseconds.
- Surges may be caused by high winds, animal interference, broken tree limbs, traffic accidents involving utility poles, etc.
- Surges can enter through telephone and cable lines.
- Surge strips are not a substitute. They are designed to handle only a few items and may not resist repeated or high-voltage surges. Also, according to leading consumer magazines, surge strips must be replaced every few years.
OPPD’s Residential Surge Guard Protection offers more effective protection that’s able to withstand repeated surges, even at voltages as intense as direct lightning strikes. And it’s backed by a $50,000 repair or replacement warranty.
