Today’s weather seems more unpredictable than ever before and if the idea of random tornados, blinding snow storms, powerful ice storms and debilitating lightning strikes once seemed far fetched, the craziness of today’s weather extremes means these events are no longer out of the realm of possibility.

Power protection can’t save a home from the perils of a tornado or ice storm, but it can protect homes from surges, spikes and other power related anomalies during times of lightning strikes and other events. Eaton Corporation‘s new collaboration with Mike Holmes host of HGTV’s “Holmes on Homes” offers electronics professionals a line of products that can protect an entire home from surges and spikes.

Eaton says the “Holmes Approved” line of products are designed to install in a home’s breaker box and they are engineered to protect a home’s appliances, electronics and other devices from surges. Holmes says the reason he partnered with Eaton is because he has experienced the affects of a surge and afterwards he installed Eaton products to protect his electronics and appliances from these types of events.
