We never know when or where lightning may strike. To provide the most reliable protection, PowerUp Power Systems Surge Suppressors are needed.

Have you ever plugged your television or computer or other electronic device into one of those power strips and thought “Ha! Lightning cannot get it now!”? Well, that is NOT the case…

You, however, are not alone in this thought process. Many homeowners have this exact misconception.

Why Surge Suppressors Are Highly Recommended

Surge protective panels or strips alone are not enough to fight damaging power surges that cause millions of dollars in property damage each year (which a lot of insurance companies do NOT cover).

A power surge can travel through any wire into a house, leaving common appliances and sensitive electronic equipment vulnerable to serious damage.

If the surges are ongoing, they can downgrade how well your electronics work and shorten their lifespan. Replacing electronics can cause quite a hit financially!

PowerUp Surge Suppressors can be used in residential, commercial and industrial locations with a maximum surge current of 50,000 amps. This device provides protection against catastrophic failure, costly downtime and data disruptions.

How Surge Suppressors Work

Surge suppressors are just that – a network that will only allow the required amount of electricity to enter your home.

Extra power or over-voltages from a storm or lightning strike are absorbed. Your home and devices are instantaneously protected from these high-energy transient voltage surges. The NEC, or National Electrical Code, felt these were so vitally important that they voted in 2020 to make surge protection a requirement for service replacements and upgrades.

Types Of Surge Suppressors

Surge Suppressor devices are available in two types:

  • Type 1 or meter base surge protector. This mounts onto the outside meter of your home and reduces extra voltage from the power grid before it reaches your electrical panel. Type 1 helps reduce the surges OUTSIDE your home, which is approximately 20% of all surges.
  • Type 2 or panel base surge protector. This is installed on your main electrical panel and helps protect your home from the surges that occur WITHIN the home, which is approximately 80% of all surges.

Automation Systems Are Covered As Well

Have a home or business automation system, such as INSTEON, X10, or Z-Wave? No worries! Whole House Surge Suppressor devices can also protect against damage to these systems! By adding this surge protector to your home or business, you will be protecting this investment against costly damages.

What Our Clients Say About Us

I had two generators installed in November at my home and business outside Doyline. Sitting here right now with electricity while my neighbors are out due to the storms this morning. What a relief! Thank you so much!
Ms. Briggs,

In 2008 we purchased our PowerUp Generator system. We purchased the system recommended. It’s about to be protecting us during Hurricane #3! We also recommend their annual service package. Maintenance is an important part of reliability of the system.

Last evening (with Hurricane Laura heading our way) our doorbell rang. Surprised to see our PowerUp maintenance guys at the door. They came to check out the system because of the impending storm. Glad they did our battery was needing replacement and a spark plug was Fouled. We would have not known until it was needed. This is what you can rely on when your a PowerUp customer! Thank you PowerUp , so glad we are a part of your company’s family.

This is an unsolicited testimony from a much satisfied customer.

Ms. Vidler,
Installed 4 years now and service has been excellent! As the tropical storm hit our area in August 2020, our unit did not come on early that morning. I called PowerUp and the technician arrived within the next hour. He even had to move a limb in my drive. With the rain and wind hitting him, he efficiently replaced the battery! We highly recommend PowerUp Systems!
Ms. Junkin,
Mr. Randy Smith is a very nice sweet helpful person. Him and his crew helped me out in more ways then just the generator. He was honest and trueful. Generator was delivered days before scheduled.
Ms. Green,
Superb company for all your home generator needs. Maintenance, service, new installs, and repairs. These folks truly care about their clients.
Mrs. Willard,
Great people, great products, and you’re sure to receive great service!
Mr. Clem,
