Surges are sudden and unexpected spikes in voltage that travel throughout your home/office electrical system.
Some surges come from within you own home/office, such as turning on a vacuum cleaner or sending a document to your printer. Other surges come from outside your home, as in electric utility switching, downed power poles, cut power lines, and lightning strikes. Surge can even enter through cable televisions and telephone wiring.
