A sudden spike in electricity — a power surge — can damage or destroy appliances and your devices in the blink of an eye. A power surge could be caused from using to many electrical devices at one time or from an electrical storm.
Last month, one of our customers lost over 10K worth of appliances due to a power surge. This is not an uncommon occurrence. When too much electricity flows through an appliance at once, the appliance could overheat, break down, or even catch fire.
The easiest solution is to have an electrician install a power surge diverter. A surge diverter is a piece of equipment that diverts excess voltages (caused by spikes in the electrical supply) to earth - protecting sensitive electrical and electronic equipment.
Retailers will try and sell you an individual protection device to care for your new electrical products. However, a professional surge diverter installed into your homes main switchboard will protect the whole house.
A basic surge diverter can be installed in your home or office for a minimal cost. This is a small price compared to the cost of replacing damaged electrical goods. Call us today to find out more.
