Electricity and Your Computer: A Deadly Combination

April 10th, 2008

Storm season is upon us again in San Angelo, which means that it is more important than ever to make sure your computer is protected. While a direct lightning strike can be fatal to any system, even minor electrical surges and power fluctuations can cause harm. The best way to protect your computer during storms is to simply unplug it from the wall, but there are other safety measures as well.

One of the best things you can do to protect against power problems is to install a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) with AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulator) protection. A UPS will keep your computer on when the power turns off, but the extra functionality of an AVR ensures that your computer will receive a steady supply of power during surges and fluctuations.

A UPS/AVR is a cost-effective way to keep your equipment safe. Come by our store today to see what we have to offer!
