Surge Protection: Avoid the Worst Kind of Summer Frying

Related Articles

When living in Texas, there’s no way around it. At some point high summer temperatures are going to make us feel like we’re living in a frying pan. Another kind of summer frying is even worse, however, but it’s avoidable. With the right precautions and surge protection, you can guard your electronics against getting “fried” in case of a power surge.

Lightning is the most common cause of power surges. A surge occurs when something – like lightning – causes a change in the electricity flowing through your home’s electrical circuits. Such surges can ruin electrical equipment plugged into those circuits, even if they’re not turned on at the time.

With that in mind, it’s best to take precautions such as using surge protectors and power strips, and unplugging devices when they’re not in use. Sometimes, despite your best efforts, a power surge will zap something important, such as appliances or HVAC units. Replacing or repairing those items can be expensive.
