Protect Your Lighting investment with a whole house surge protector
Simply investment pays big dividends
Upgrading to the LED light bulbs can save on energy costs. Jane Clark recomends that you protect your savings and your initial investment with a whole house surge protector
Light bulbs have gone from horribly inefficient 100 year old incandescent technology (typically 75 watts to 100w per bulb) to compact florescence lights (15w-25w p/bulb) to solid state LED (Light Emitting Diode) lights that typically consume less than 8 watts per bulb. LED Semi-Conductor bulb technology operates on low DC voltages that is manufactured inside the bulb itself through AC rectification circuits. AC voltage spikes imported from utility company transmission lines can easily damage semi-conductor devices if said voltage spikes are not properly filtered before coming into your home. Most people now a days have surge protection devices throughout their homes to protect media equipment, computers and expensive Flat Screen TV's, but what about surge protection for your home's expensive LED lighting system, AC System and many every day appliances that do not have individual surge protection devices to plug into?
Today's 3500sqft home can easily cost $1500 or more to switch over to all LED lights and just one bad spike from a Texas thunderstorm can wipe out these expensive LED lights.
ADD A WHOLE HOUSE SURGE PROTECTOR AT YOUR BREAKER BOX
Barring a direct lightning hit, a whole house surge protection device that plugs into you main Power Distribution Panel and looks similar to a standard circuit breaker, can filter all incoming AC power and safely remove voltage spikes before they can do damage to unprotected lighting and other electronic appliances. With a single plug in protection device, you protect your entire AC distribution system, all TV's, Sound, Media, Network and Computer devices. Cool!
Absent a direct lightning strike, your whole house surge protection device should be all the protection you need to help prevent the loss of expensive in home components. When you think about the $250 charge to have a licensed electrician install this surge protection device into your AC panel, that charge pales in comparison to the cost of replacing valuable electronic devices and appliances throughout your home.
