Residential surge protection has long been viewed as an important safety consideration and guidance has been issued in the past to help homeowners protect their house and its contents. This protection has often been described as being similar to an insurance policy, partly because there is not an NFPA code requirement for SPD installation in residences. Today’s residences often contain electronic equipment throughout, including appliances, ceiling fans, computers, security systems, life safety equipment, automation systems for internet-enabled applications, and home entertainment systems.
Expensive Items At Risk:
