What are some common myths about whole house surge protectors?


Albert Smith, Expert of Electricians Service Team

Despite the evident benefits, misconceptions often hinder homeowners from investing in surge protectors. Let’s debunk some of these myths:

  • Myth 1: “Surge protectors and power strips are the same.” Fact: While both may have plug-in outlets, only surge protectors provide defense against power surges.
  • Myth 2: “All surge protectors are the same.” Fact: Surge protectors differ significantly in their protection levels (joule rating), emphasizing the variability among them.
  • Myth 3: “A surge protector guarantees complete protection during power surges.” Fact: Surge protectors offer substantial protection but not absolute security. It’s advisable to unplug valuable electronics during severe storms.
