Make Your Devices Last Longer with Home Power Protection
TAGS: Energy Conservation | Home Automation
If you own a home theater, smart home system, or other home electronics, you’d hope the equipment will last for quite a long time. So we understand how frustrating and perplexing it can be when technology starts to give out after only a few years.
It makes many people wonder: do manufacturers purposefully build hardware to expire so soon? While some modern electronics aren’t well-made, you should be able to trust high-end brands to last.
What most homeowners don’t realize is that it’s not the equipment causing malfunctions—it’s the power supply. If your home’s electricity is creating surges and noise, it could damage your devices and shorten their lifespan.
Heavy digital loads at home lead to “dirty power.” Luckily, with home power protection, you can keep your La Cañada Flintridge, CA home’s technology running smoothly and safely. Here’s what you’ll need.

As the San Gabriel Valley starts to heat up, Californians have to start thinking about how they’ll keep cool this summer. But cranking the AC in every room is very costly and can do a number on our wallets and the power grid. You might not want to leave the air conditioning on while you’re out of the house, but during a heatwave, no one wants to come home to a stifling house.
Luckily, a motorized shades installation offers a convenient and efficient way to keep your home cool. During blackouts when we’re asked to conserve power, smart shades by manufacturers like Lutron offer another way to keep heat out of your Pasadena, CA house. How? We’ll explain how it works below.
Utilizing Rooftop Solar, Sonnen, and Savant Energy, Personal Technology’s offices are no longer reliant on the grid.

We’ve recently completed a big project in our Alhambra office that we are very excited about! With the addition of rooftop solar and a microgrid from Sonnen, we are now a net energy exporter and can run off-grid indefinitely. As an energy storage consultant that provides services to Pasadena, CA, and surrounding areas in the San Gabriel Valley, we’ll share how we did it below.
How to Be Grid Independent and Self Reliant With Smart Technology

As heat waves thrive and wildfires rage through the West Coast, Californians have been asked to conserve energy to reduce demands on the grid. The California Independent System Operator calls for residents to avoid using major appliances after 3 p.m., keep their air conditioning at 78 degrees or higher, and turn off all necessary lights. In the event of a Public Safety Power Shutoff, millions of homes will be without electricity.
You can do your part to rely less on the grid while simultaneously keeping your home powered. If you’re based in or near Pasadena, CA, a home energy storage system will keep areas of your home powered when you most need it, even amidst a power failure. And if you own solar panels, you’ll be able to store your solar energy to use clean power after dark.
But how does home energy storage work, and can you really power your home without the grid? We answer your energy conservation questions below!
