Power surges occur when the amount of electricity flowing through the wires and out of the outlets in your home increases in voltage. Although surges usually last only a fraction of a second, they can permanently damage electrical items in your home and even pose a fire risk.

You can find surge protectors that plug directly into your outlets and power strips that offer surge protection.
