While you may have a surge protector on a few expensive electronic devices in the home, you may be able to avoid electrical repairs by having one for the entire house. A power surge can cause problems for more than your computer. With a little preplanning, you can avoid the pitfalls of everyday indoor power surges.
The weather isn’t the only thing that causes power surges. Anything in the home that is plugged in can disrupt the power source and cause a surge of power that a surge protector prevents causing additional issues with your electronics. The small cost of a whole-home surge protector can save you thousands of dollars in appliance and electronic device replacements.
A real estate inspection or home inspection is not an appraisal or a check for compliance with building codes; it’s also not an evaluation of environmental hazards. See the NYS Standards of Practice for more information on the limitations of a home inspection.
