Are Surge Protectors needed for my Copier?

How much does your electric service affect the performance of your copier? Do you need to add a surge protector to your copier? As our century old power grids become ever more stressed and the amount of electronic devices we seem to crave increase, then the strain on our power grid becomes more obvious. Adding a surge protector is never a bad choice and when leasing a piece of equipment that could cost your company thousands of dollars, making a small investment could save you headaches down the road.

If you look at the terms and conditions of any copier service contract you’ll be sure to notice that there is a clause that excludes damage to the machine caused by power fluctuations. It’s because of this that the smart consumer should take action and be prepared for the worst case scenario. Besides the obvious, this investment has proven to actually increase the performance of the equipment while proportionately decreasing down time.

Take a minute out of your day to look at the power cord of your copier, see if there is actually some sort of surge protector installed. If not, and you feel that this is important to consider, feel free to give us a call and arrange to have one installed.
