What is a surge and where do they come from?
A surge is an abnormal or spike in voltage and current in your electrical system. Your electrical system can only handle so much electricity.
- Surges come from mother nature
- Surges come from your utility company
When an electrical spike comes through it can damage your electrical system and everything that is tied into your system. This includes anything that is plugged-in regular outlets.
