What is a Power Surge and Surge Protection?
A power surge is a spike in electrical current to your home, which lasts only a thousandth of a second. With that amount of current to your property or office, you never know the damage it can cause until it’s too late.
Refrigerators, air conditioners and space heaters can also cause a power surge strong enough to cause your home a considerable amount of damage to electrical systems as they draw a lot of electrical current to the home as well.
Power surges or voltage spikes will be a very expensive problem if you don’t have the right protection for these kinds of events. It’s also a problem for any person without an insurance policy that covers that sort of damage to your appliances and entertainment equipment.
Queensland Weather and Your Home’s Electricity
Queensland’s storm season is the most destructive time for any household with the frequency of rainstorm and lightning strikes increase the risk of a overcharge or surge to the electricity in your home. This can amount to your house or office being without power, damaged equipment vital to every day operations and can even lower the integrity of the entire building electrical systems.
