August 15, 2012 - PITTSBURGH …Mike Holmes, contractor and host of the television show “Holmes on Homes,” and diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation, a global leader in electrical power management, today announced a collaboration to offer homeowners a line of “Holmes Approved” electrical surge protectors.
When installed on a home’s breaker box, Eaton’s surge products can help prevent or minimize damage to electronic devices, home appliances and other equipment in the event of electrical surges.
“People never think it could happen, but it happened to me,” said Mike Holmes. “A large electrical surge entered my house and I lost all my electronics that were plugged in. All of them. The first thing I did after replacing everything was install an Eaton Complete Home Surge protector.”
Mike Holmes is an advocate for homeowner and building safety. All projects and initiatives undertaken by the star contractor are defined by quality, integrity and trust. Eaton’s product innovation, superior customer service and commitment to doing business right makes the collaboration a logical next step.
“In an era of increasingly sophisticated and costly electronics and household appliances, homeowners have a lot on the line,” said Joanne Edwards, vice president and general manager, Eaton Corporation. “When a surge happens, their best defense is comprehensive surge protection.”
“I’ve been using these devices for years on the homes I work on,” added Holmes. “Don’t learn the hard way. It’s always better to prevent than replace.”
