While many homes and offices employ power strips to protect computers, monitors, televisions and other electronics, they do not do much good for your larger electrical appliances such as refrigerators and laundry machines. There are many reasons that a surge of electricity may flood your residential electrical system, such as when a utility pole is struck by lightning. When a surge occurs, excess voltage flows into your home. If your electrical panel is overloaded it is possible for this voltage to bypass it and make its way into your home. This can lead to burnt out electronics, certainly, but it can also affect appliances, GFCI outlets, and anything that has an electronic motherboard.
There are a few issues with power strip surge protectors that you must take into consideration. First of all, many simply do not offer very much protection, acting more as extra outlets than really offering much surge protection. Additionally, power outlets are not the only way in which a power surge can damage your equipment. Excess voltage can sneak into your home in a variety of ways, including through telephone and cable lines. For complete protection, a whole house surge suppressor system wired directly into your service panel really is the best way to go.
