A whole-home surge protector is a device that’s installed in your electric circuit breaker box or main point of power entry to your home. It protects expensive electronic devices (like your computer or big screen TV) by diverting excess current safely through your home’s grounding path.
This makes it your main defense against a sudden large power surge caused by a lightning strike or a damaged power line.
Power strips with built-in surge protection are adequate for smaller surges that happen in your home. But they can’t handle the large surge of an external force (like nearby lightning strikes and damaged power lines).
The ideal setup is to use power strips with a whole-home surge protector to form a powerful two-tiered surge protection system.
