Keep the power on at all times with Zap Cap Systems® – advanced surge protection and backup power for your home.
When power issues like surges, momentary outages and flickers affect your home, it can be frustrating – and expensive. Zap Cap Systems keeps you and your major appliances protected.
Your Zap Cap Systems package can be customized to include surge protection and uninterruptible power supply (UPS). The surge protection system 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 surge protection is a primary unit installed behind or near your electric meter. It’s designed to absorb a large amount of transient surges before they enter your home’s wiring.
The second layer of protection features sophisticated plug-in protectors that help safeguard your sensitive electronics. If momentary outages or flickers threaten your wi-fi connection, digital video recording device or other sensitive electronics, outfit your system with a UPS that provides surge protection AND battery backup to isolated equipment.

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. High-voltage surges can enter your home through electric lines, telephone wires or your cable TV wiring.
A momentary interruption, or "flickers", can last up to a few seconds and is usually caused by a short circuit. Like surges, short circuits occur when something like an animal or a tree limb comes in contact with power lines. When this happens, a breaker automatically de-energizes the circuit and causes a slight interruption to your service.
