Using Generac’s whole-house Surge Protection Device (SPD) helps protect sensitive electronics like mobile phones, laptop computers, TVs and smart appliances from voltage spikes caused by lightning strikes, downed power lines, and routine utility switching activity.
How Power Surges Occur
Lightning strikes and utility switching can cause voltage transients and power surges in the electrical grid. These surges travel through distribution lines and into your home or business, damaging sensitive electronic appliances and shortening their life. Many transients go undetected, but overtime, contribute to sudden and inexplicable failures of electrical equipment. Protect your electronics by installing a Surge Protective Device.
How Our Generac Surge Protection Device Helps
Generac’s whole-house surge protection device (SPD) helps protect against these damaging surges and transients by blocking them from entering your home or business. It has thermally protected MOVs (metal oxide varistors) that help reduce risk of thermal damage, while it’s compact, weather-resistant design offers installation flexibility.
