Although Florida Power & Light has made great advances in electrical grid stability for South Florida, power surges are still common. A power surge is a suddenly occurring intense electrical spike in your building’s current, far beyond a safe limit. Lightning is one reason for a power surge and Florida is known as the lightning capital of America. But even a power outage can generate a brief surge that can destroy valuable appliances and systems.
Adding a layer of protection against transient overvoltage is a very wise decision in South Florida. We consider surge protection to be a critical component of a safe electrical system – you have too many expensive pieces of equipment and electronic devices to put at risk.
