Why TPS Surge Suppression is a Quick Return on Investment for the Customer?

Any kind of malfunction or downtime in an electronic system due to failure or glitch is a loss in productivity or loss of enjoyment for someone. A systems integrator does not have spare time to deal with unprotected equipment that fails, is locking up or glitching before or after they turn over a system. Time is money and no one knows that better than the customer.  All electronics suffer degradation and just like everything else in life they die a slow death. If electronics are surge protected correctly their life can be dramatically extended. Without any surge protection electronics will degrade faster and lockup or glitch more often than if they were properly protected. Using the best possible surge suppressor from Transient Protection Design (See Design Diagrams) will maintain the peak performance of the equipment for the longest possible time.


Return on Investment means that if a Systems Integrator sells X dollar amount of TPD product to a customer, in a certain period of time (up to two years or as fast as one lightning season) the customer will recoup the X dollar amount invested.  Life cycle savings mean that once the investment is recouped, the customer will save money every year putting total savings greatly in excess of the original investment.  Many things going into the home increase enjoyment, but few things save the owner money.   Repairing and resetting equipment has become somewhat of a necessary evil that comes with high end systems.  This is because power is not perfect and what works in a laboratory does not necessarily work the same in the real world.  Without TPD protection, sooner or later lockups, glitches and equipment failure will need to be dealt with.


When Return On Investment is explained to the end user, the investment in a Transient Protection Design system does become much more appealing to them, whether the end user is the homeowner or business owner.  In addition to what the systems integrator installed and protected in the past with point of use suppression devices, there were many other pieces of equipment and entire systems that were typically left unprotected.  In addition to lighting and home automation systems, there are elevators, generators, and commercial HVAC systems and the need for at TPD protection has never been greater.  The great news is that a Transient Protection Design system will continue to pay for itself for many years to come and provide the owner with these benefits:

Significantly reduce life cycle maintenance costs

Increase Equipment Reliability

Improve Productivity

Lowers Repair Costs
