Alternating current causes your electrical voltage to oscillate between 0 and 169 volts. When the voltage exceeds 169, you will experience a power surge, which can cause immense damage to your appliances, computer equipment and other home electronics if left unprotected. When your electronics’ voltage increases beyond its peak at 169, arcs of electrical current develop and generate heat that can be damaging to circuit boards. Over time, these power surges can render your electronic equipment powerless.
The most common reason for a power surge is a lightning storm, which can enter a home through cable, phone or electrical lines. Other reasons for power surges are heavy duty appliances like refrigerators and air conditioners powering on and off, and power grid switching conducted by your Electric Company.
