Why You Need a Surge Protector to Protect Your Adjustable Bed

May 11, 2020 Tripp Lite
Most adjustable bed manufacturers recommend a minimal surge suppressor joule rating of 700.

When it comes to adjustable mattresses such as Sleep Number Adjustable Beds, two of the most common complaints are gradual mattress deflation, similar to what you might experience with air mattresses, and temperature control. If you’re having one or both of these problems, you’ve come to the right place.

Surge protectors safeguard your electronics against damaging power surges that can harm virtually anything plugged into a standard wall outlet. The same level of protection can be applied to adjustable bed frames.

What is a Power Surge?

A power surge is a short-duration voltage increase that travels through electrical wiring or other cabling that transmits data or energy through wall outlets and other connected devices such as adjustable beds. Common causes of power surges include:

  • Lightning strikes
  • Power outages and downed power lines
  • Tripped circuit breakers
  • On/off cycles of large appliances and tools
  • Accidents and malfunctions at the power company or on the electrical grid

What are Joules?

A surge protector’s joule rating indicates how much energy it can absorb before it eventually fails over time. The higher the number, the greater the protection provided. The type and value of the equipment, in this case an adjustable bed, to be protected are key factors in determining the joules needed.
