Surge Protector Services

Power surges can damage expensive and sensitive electronics in your home, especially TVs and computers. Overvoltages can cause irreversible damage to your cherished appliances. When this occurs, all you can do is replace the damaged electronics and count your losses.

A surge protector or surge suppressor protects equipment from power surges. This means you won’t need to face the costs that come with replacing those big-ticket items. It’s a sort of electronic insurance.

Types of Surge Protectors

Broadly speaking there are 3 types of surge protectors.

Portable – These are power boards that include a surge protection device. They protect any appliances plugged into them.

Powerpoint – Powerpoint surge protectors have to be installed by a licensed electrician. They replace standard powerpoints to provide specific protection for home offices or living rooms or anywhere there are expensive electronics.

Main switchboard – The best option is a surge protector that is installed in your main switchboard. Again, this must be done by a licensed electrician. Some of these sorts of surge protectors have components that you can replace without having to disconnect the power. They have an indicator that shows when overload has happened, and you need to install a new module. If the spent modules are left there, the power will still work, but devices will not be protected from damage if there is another surge.

FAQs – Everything You Should Know About Surge Protectors

Surge Protectors are a major electrical component in your home. Here's what you need to know about them.

Surge arrestors work by preventing excessive voltage reaching appliances by redirecting the excess to earth. The normal current to the device is uninterrupted and the damaging surge is deflected to the ground. Simply put, they offer surge protection to your home and electrical appliances!

They are not designed to protect from direct lightning strikes. They protect from voltage surges.

The best type of surge protector for you depends on where you live and how prone you are to damaging power surges. City apartments are less susceptible than isolated houses, so a power board surge protector is adequate for them, whereas a surge protector in the switchboard is more suited to the country.

Surge protectors are not expensive, and they do what they are designed to do – protect your valuable computers and TVs. If you don’t want to risk losing precious gear, then you need a surge protector. As they say, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
