Homeowners insurance is subject to a deductible and only assists you AFTER the damage is done. OPPD’s Surge Guard Protection is proactive in stopping surges BEFORE they enter your home and doesn’t require a deductible.
Surge strips can only protect items plugged into them. OPPD’s product protects your entire home at three critical entry points – electric, phone and cable lines. Also, OPPD’s Surge Guard product can withstand far greater surges than a typical surge strip. Lastly, surge strips need to be replaced every couple of years because they wear out.
