Cell Phone with Headphones Attached Protect what matters the most to you. Unplug all devices during a thunderstorm to ensure they are protected from a power surge.

Multiple sources can create an energy surge, but what is left is wreak havoc for your electronics, appliances, and electronic outlets. Lighting can cause a power surge by striking a home’s electrical system, which accepts this extra energy hence frying the system. Sometimes people will over plug each plugin with appliances above the greater amperage than what is intended for that circuit. 

Here are some easy ways to prevent your circuits from experiencing a power surge during a storm. 

  • Unplug Everything During a Storm

This might be the most helpful trick to protect yourself when preventing a power surge. You should unplug any home appliances, computers, or gaming systems.

  • Distribute your Appliances

Instead of having a few plugins full, you should distribute the appliances between a few outlets. This ensures you are not overwhelming certain outlets that will accept the energy source that fries your devices in return.

  • Purchase A Surge Protector

A power surge follows a power outage, and it is caused when a large jolt of electricity powers back. A Surge protector absorbs the jolt and doesn’t allow the devices to this jolt which protects it from being fried. 

Follow these three steps to keep your contents safe from a possible power surge.
