Protect your home from power surges

In a survey of Okaloosa and Walton county residents, more than 50 percent of respondents reported they have received property damage as the result of a lightning strike. Although nothing can protect you from a direct lightning strike, CHELCO can offer you the best surge protection available.

How do we know it's the best? Because the products were tested by simulating a lightning strike in a surge protection testing laboratory. Therefore, we can say with confidence that we can help protect your investment in appliances and electronics with our program.

Meter Based Unit

For protection of your motor-driven appliances, such as your washer and dryer, air conditioner, etc., we offer a meter-based surge protector. Members lease the unit for $6.95 per month. Prior to installing the unit, a surge specialist will perform a surge evaluationto make sure your home is properly grounded and to check any existing surge protection you might already have. There is a $25 evaluation fee, but it also covers the cost of installation.

For sensitive electronics, such as your computer and televisions, you will need additional protection. We offer quality point-of-use, or plug-in, protectors, at affordable prices.

Point of Use Protectors
Our point of use (POU) surge protectors were extensively tested in a lightning lab to make sure we were offering you the best possible protection for the price. All of our POUs are UL listed 1449 transient voltage surge suppressors in addition to being multi-staged and heat fused for your protection. 

To request a surge evaluation, call our marketing department at (850) 892-2111.
