Coosa Valley Electric offers products that can protect your valuable appliances and electronics from damage due to lightning and power surges.

For just $5 a month (on a 36-month renewable lease agreement), you can protect your motor-driven and resistance-heated appliances. To protect the sensitive electronics throughout your home, CVEC sells devices that will protect TVs, VCRs, computers and telephones, among others, from surges that may come across the telephone, cable or satellite services as well as your power service, provided your home’s electrical wiring is adequately grounded.

A lot of factors can affect how well your home’s wiring is grounded. A CVEC service man will test the ground prior to installation of any protective devices. If the service man determines it to be inadequate, ground rods may need to be installed. CVEC supplies one ground rod and clamp at no charge but cannot do the installation. The consumer may install it himself or call a licensed electrician.

Once the new ground rod has been installed, CVEC will retest the home’s wiring. If it is good, a service man will install the Meter Socket Adapter (MSA), which protects only the appliances. Coosa Valley Electric sells other devices that can protect your valuable electronics.
