Appliances are expensive to repair and even more expensive to replace. Most people consider the appliances they’ve purchased and installed as necessities. Yes, you could survive without the use of some appliances. Washing your own dishes and lugging the family laundry to the laundromat is certainly an option, but having those appliances at your beck and call, inside your own home is convenient. They keep life running smoothly.
You’ve invested quite a bit of cash into the purchase and installation of your appliances. The air conditioner alone is a significant and costly expense. Replacing your air conditioner, depending on the size of your home and the brand you choose, could cost, on average, a little more than $5,000, but the price could range between $4,425 and $6,025.1 You run the risk of repairing or replacing an air condition unit and other appliances, if a power surge travels through the electrical wiring of your home. Power surges can damage or totally destroy them.
The SurgeShield® program, offered by FPL Home, helps to protect appliances, by placing a state-of-the-art surge protector directly at the electric meter. The SurgeShield program also comes with a $5,000 limited manufacturer’s warranty per covered appliance, per occurrence for damages caused by a failure of the surge protector to properly perform. Appliances covered by the limited manufacturer’s warranty include: air conditioners, washer and dryers, oven/ranges, dishwashers, refrigerators and more. Enroll in the SurgeShield program to help protect your appliances, in the event that the unspeakable happens.
