The Essentials Of Protecting Your Office Equipment


Keeping your office equipment in tip-top shape is essential.

Keeping your office equipment in great shape is important every day. Think of how many times a day your employees take the time to use a copier, computer, fax machine, phone, and the internet itself. Chances are, everyone in your office relies on quality office equipment to get their job done! How can you protect your office equipment to ensure that it serves you well for years to come?

A Power Conditioner

A power conditioner or a power filter is essentially a heavier duty surge protector. It will do the job of evening out the voltage that is distributed to all of your office equipment. If there are any power surges or power spikes, it will buffer them and stop them from harming your office equipment. If you don’t take the time to install a power conditioner, those power spikes can actually fry the wiring that your office equipment uses.


Office equipment is only designed to operate at certain voltage levels, so if the voltage spikes dramatically above that amount, it can totally ruin the office equipment. The heat that is created will damage the wiring and burn your office equipment out.

Why Does The Power Fluctuate In The First Place?

Most people don’t realize that the power in their office naturally fluctuates, so they don’t see the need to prevent it from occurring. Power fluctuations occur as a result of many different events, including:

  • All of the office equipment, appliances, and things plugged into your office’s circuit interfering with each other and overheating your office
  • Poor quality or very old electrical wiring
  • Power fluctuations in the power that are actually entering your business, as a result of the power grid you are on and your energy company
  • A lightning strike or other major weather event
