Protecting the Electronics in Your Wildwood Apartment from Power Surges

Have you ever been watching television in your Wildwood apartment when all of a sudden a lightning strike sends power surging to your electronics? The television goes dark and, you’re sure the lightning sent voltage spiking upwards and damaged something expensive. There’s a good chance that your electronics can be rendered useless beyond all repair when this happens. Thunderstorms are no stranger to central Florida, and there have been many instances when power surges have occurred even when the sun is shining. However, there are ways to protect your electronics, and prevent power surges from entering your apartment.

Try taking these precautionary measures in your Wildwood apartment to minimize damage to your equipment during power surges:

  • Plug all of your electronics into a power strip with a surge protector. Power strips help to absorb power and disburse it appropriately to specific electronics.
  • For a somewhat larger investment, you can purchase a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) for your computers and other important electronics. A UPS is a surge protector with a battery backup that can keep your electronics running during power surges and short power outages.
  • Turn power strips off when you are not using the electronics connected to them. This will help to give your electronics a break and prevent them from sustaining damage during a power surge.
  • Unplug nonessential cords from the wall when you will be out of your apartment for extended periods of time. This should also help you save a little bit on your utility costs.

Doing a little bit really can go a long way when it comes to protecting your electronics from power surges.
