Businesses in industries, such as hospitality, aviation, construction, telecommunication and food are heavily reliant on stable power sources also do not hesitate to invest in smart backup power solutions.

Certain states have also mandated ‘standby power’ for industries where the building systems could disrupt businesses, even though they may not impact human life.
A surge protector is designed to help keep your electrical equipment safe from any voltage spikes. It regulates the voltage within your electrical devices (either through blocking or grounding) so that it is always at a safe level for your equipment. Surges happen a lot more frequently than homeowners might realize, and when they do occur, you will want a whole house surge protector installed to protect your appliances and devices.
