SURGE PROTECTION PROGRAM Never worry about expensive electrical surge damage again.
Protection for your valuable investments If your home appliances are damaged by a power surge or lightning strike, your investment will be protected. Each year there are about 25 million lightning strikes in the U.S. Georgia ranks 8th among other states in terms of density of lightning strikes per square mile. Keep your investments safe with plans starting at $5.75 per month.
No hassles Why file a claim with your homeowner’s insurance and risk higher premiums? What about your deductible? With optional Surge HELP® you pay the same amount, regardless of claims, and there is never a deductible. Surge HELP® will even pay up to $125 in diagnostic/ service fees for a valid claim and there’s no equipment to install.
More coverage Most surge protection programs exclude items such as stoves and ovens or the outside portion of your heat pump/AC and well pumps. Surge HELP® covers all of those items, giving you more protection.

This includes single family homes (inclusive of manufactured housing), townhomes and apartments. Recreational vehicles and properties used for commercial purposes are not eligible. Your property is not eligible if you are aware of any pre-existing conditions, defects or deficiencies with your electrical products prior to enrollment. If your electrical products are entirely shared with any third party or covered by a homeowners’, condominium or like association, then you are not eligible. Benefits: Coverage provides reimbursement, up to the benefit amount, for the covered cost to repair or replace the following residential electrical products, for which you have sole responsibility, that fail due to an electrical surge (a short-term burst of excessive, unwanted energy (transient over-voltage) on a circuit, which if not suppressed, can accelerate wear and tear of attached electrical equipment, increasing repair frequency, repair costs and product failure): appliances, electronics, and electromechanical equipment including, but not limited to, refrigerators, clothes washers, clothes dryers, dishwashers, blenders, mixers, toasters, microwaves, televisions, window air conditioning units, thermostats, lamps, computers, DVD players, game consoles, printers, scanners and handheld devices such as tablets.

Additional exclusions apply. Arranging for Repair/Reimbursement: Your plan starts the day your enrollment is processed. There is an initial 30-day waiting period before you can request reimbursement, providing 11 months of coverage during the first year.

Frequently Asked Questions Why should I purchase Surge HELP®? Can’t I just buy surge protectors? High quality surge protectors are a good idea, in fact Jackson EMC offers them (see the order form in this brochure.) However, surge protection for motor-driven appliances, such as HVAC units, refrigerators, garage door openers and water heaters can be more challenging. Often these electrical outlets are difficult to access. Surge HELP® offers protection for these appliances.
How do I know the repair cost will be paid to me? You can call once you receive a repair estimate; however, as long as the claim form for a covered repair or replacement is completed in full per the instructions and accompanied by the proper documentation, you will receive payment. (See Terms & Conditions for complete claim process.)
How do you determine replacement cost for items that cannot be repaired? Replacement cost is based on the typical purchase price of a similar, standard product available on the market today, taking into consideration the make, model and features of the item being replaced. To order Surge HELP®, complete the enclosed order form. For more information, call Jackson EMC customer service at 1-800-462-3691.
