Stay plugged in with Zap Cap Systems® – advanced surge protection for your home

When a power surge affects your home, it can mean sudden damage to the appliances and equipment you rely on every day. Protect your investment in major appliances and sensitive electronics with our double layer of defense, Zap Cap Systems.

How it works

Our two-layer Zap Cap Systems works to divert most of the surge energy at the main service line, while providing additional protection from residual voltage inside your home.

The first layer of protection is a primary unit installed behind or near your electric meter, designed to absorb a large amount of transient surges before they enter your home's wiring.

Sophisticated plug-in protectors are the second layer of protection, safeguarding your sensitive electronics. To get started, choose a free home office plug-in protector, or upgrade to a home entertainment plug-in protector as part of your initial installation package for the discounted price of $30, plus tax.

Additional benefits

By participating in Zap Cap Systems, you'll also receive the following benefits, at no additional charge:

  • An annual inspection of your equipment
  • Year-round, full-service maintenance on your equipment
  • Replacement of all damaged surge protection equipment
About surges

Did you know a high-voltage surge can be caused by a squirrel? We work with environmental experts to protect birds and other animals by researching new ways to prevent them from coming into contact with power lines.

Occasionally, they do make contact and a surge occurs. Weather, tree limbs and automobile accidents involving utility poles also can cause surges.

High-voltage surges can enter your home through electric lines, telephone wires or your cable TV wiring.
