Meter-Based Surge Protection

Power surges coming into your home through the power line can destroy or cause extensive damage to your equipment and appliances. Being prepared for these unexpected surges and spikes can make a big difference in protecting your equipment. Lightning is the most common cause of power surges, but other factors such as birds, squirrels and trees interfering with power lines can also result in a power surge. Construction work, demand fluctuations in your home, and auto accidents involving utility poles can have the same effect. We want to help you shield your equipment and appliances by installing an affordable meter socket surge protector. Meter-based surge protectors will only guard against surges coming in through the electrical service, but when used together with auxiliary surge-protectors on telephone lines, cable services, and on individual devices, they are an essential part of a whole-home surge-protection strategy.

For only $7.95 per month, DEMCO will install and maintain a surge protector on the electric meter of your home or shop. If it ever fails to stop a power surge from entering your home through the meter, damaged electronics are warrantied up to $50,000.
