We install a Whole Home Surge Protector.
The next step is to install a surge protector. What’s the difference between a surge protector and a Whole Home Surge Protection, you ask? A whole home surge protector is essentially a single device that protects your entire home. It can also be used outside your home but is best suited to residential environments due to its size.

So, once installed, have a surge protector installed in your home, then the next step is connecting your electronics to it. This is when we connect and plug in the devices that require power from your surge protectors, such as your computer, printer, and other appliances. If your surge protector comes with a switch, you can then use it to make it so that you don’t have to unplug your devices when you’re done using them. There are a few downsides to this, though.

Another is that having many different devices plugged into different places can strain your outlets.
