What is Homeguard?
The HomeGuard unit is a device that is installed directly at your meter. It is designed to help protect your homes wiring, electronics and white appliances from electrical spikes and surges.
The HomeGuard warranty covers only white appliances as sensitive electronics may also need indoor surge suppressors to be completely protected. White appliances are defined as heating and air units, washer, dryer, stove, refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher and garbage disposer.
The HomeGuard unit may be leased for $4.99 per month which is added to your electric bill. The lease agreement is for a minimum of three (3) years. A $30.00 one-time installation fee is also charged.
We also offer point-of-use surge protection devices designed to protect sensitive electronics within the home.
Claims are paid only when a unit or suppressor is tested by the manufacture and found to have failed during a power surge. A unit or suppressor may be tested without charge.
The HomeGuard unit and suppressors can certainly help in preventing damage. As electricity can be unpredictable complete protection is not guaranteed. The unit will not remedy existing problems but is intended to help prevent damage caused by electrical spikes and surges.
