AEL&P offers a first line of defense to guard against surges and spikes entering your home or small business. Get extra protection for your "white" appliances (refrigerators, washing machines, etc.) while helping your outlet surge protectors do their jobs.

How does it work?

The HomeGuard unit plugs in between your meter and electrical panel. It can absorb up to 100,000 peak amps of current. Keep in mind, however, that it's often what happens inside your four walls that causes damaging surges. That's why AEL&P also recommends a second line of defense: Good outlet surge protection and UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) protection with voltage control for your computer.

Note: HomeGuard will not protect your equipment from outages and split-second low-voltage problems, often referred to as brownouts.


  • 20 years for the device, backed by EFI Electronics Corp.
  • $1,000 per covered "white" appliance that has been damaged, up to $10,000 for one occurrence. This is also provided by EFI.

Cost Includes:

  • Installation and inspection of your electrical ground. Please note that the HomeGuard cost is determined by the manufacturer. Contact us for current pricing at 780.2222.
