In today’s electronic world, your home’s electrical, phone and cable systems are incomplete unless they incorporate surge protection. Since many devices in the home are microelectronic based, it is not practical to solely rely on surge protected plug strips.
Appliances, heating and cooling systems, garage door openers and even energy saving light bulbs are examples of equipment that can’t be surge protected by plug strips. The cost to repair or replace these items far exceeds the cost of a total home surge protection solution.
To effectively surge protect ALL of your home’s equipment, Siemens developed the FirstSurge™ family of surge protective devices. They stop surges right at your incoming services before they can travel down the power, cable and telephone lines damaging your equipment.
Total Home Protection
Today's modern home is filled with appliances and electronics that require protection from surges. A surge is a brief burst of energy that can enter through a home's power, cable, and telephone lines, causing damage to dishwashers, refrigerators, TVs, computers, and more. Siemens' FirstSurge devices are designed to stop surges before they enter in order to prevent that damage from happening and protect the whole house.
Know You're Protected: 3 Stage Commercial Grade Notification
When surge protective devices wear out, homeowners are vulnerable to power surge damage. FirstSurge is equipped with 3-stage commercial diagnostics to alert a homeowner when something is wrong. An audible alarm beeps, the green LED lights extinguish, and a red service light flashes, the combination of which takes the guesswork out of knowing when a replacement is necessary.
Sized for Where You Live
One size does not fit all when it comes to surge capacity. FirstSurge devices are offered in three different sizes to better accommodate geographic locations with varying thunderstorm frequency. The map above shows which FirstSurge current capacity correlates with which region of the United States in order to maximize robustness and longevity.
Balanced VPR Protection
Unlike most standard whole house surge protectors, FirstSurge provides balanced protection for all of the primary paired conductors in an electrical system. The L-N, L-G, and N-G combinations see the same amount of surge overvoltage, which prevents unnecessary wear on electronics and appliances.
