Florida is one of the top lightning producing states in the country. Lightning strikes Florida tens of thousands of times a year causing computers to "crash", fax machines to stop faxing, and expensive home entertainment systems to suffer "fried" circuits or shorten life expectancy.
Premium Surge Protection guards you from lightning-related surges as well as other potentially damaging surges. Other surges can happen anytime there is high wind, an accident interrupts power or when power is re-established. You may see only a flicker of the lights or nothing at all, but for today's micro chip driven electronics, the result can be disastrous.
