1. To Boost Your Bottom Line: The idea of adding surge protection to boost sales seems like a no-brainer. However, many systems installers shy away from adding surge protection to their bids out of fear that it may price them out of winning the project. Or they feel like they are offering their client a piece of equipment that they don’t really need. The key to adding surge protection to a sale lies within the installer’s ability to communicate the value of surge protection to their customers.
Surge protection is necessary to protect your customer’s investment. It would be a shame if you installed a brand-new fire system only for it to be destroyed by a power surge just weeks later. The costs associated with surge protection are usually less than the sales tax on the system and can be added to a BoM as an optional protection upgrade. This allows installers the opportunity to convey the ROI that surge protection offers in a pressure-free way.
