Surge Protection $4,000
Most people know that power surges can cause serious damage to electronic items. However, many people don’t know that surge damage may be related to causes other than lightning. Your furnace, your refrigerator — or other appliances that cycle on and off — may be slowly damaging your home’s electronic items. Restoring power after an outage can also cause harm.
Our Surge Protection plan gives you financial protection and freedom from worry for all your home’s electronics and electric appliances valued at $100 or more, including computers, gaming consoles, kitchen and laundry room appliances and more.
