Power surges can take a huge toll on modern day appliances, destroying sensitive and expensive equipment without warning.
So, if you have electronic devices, appliances, or equipment that you want to protect, make sure you utilise some form of surge protection.
A power surge is what happens when there’s a sudden increase in the amount of power in the electrical system.
One common cause is the use of high-powered items being used infrequently e.g. a spa, or a heavy duty workshop item. Other means of causing a power surge include faulty wiring, downed power lines, or lightning strikes.
A Surge Arrestor installed on your switchboard is the best way to protect your home from the risks of a voltage surge.
The surge arrestor works by grounding any abnormally high voltages, rather than letting them travel through your electrics and potentially causing damage.
