A power surge is an increase in voltage that is significantly above the designated level in a flow of electricity. For example, in a normal household or an office the standard voltage may be 240volts. A lighting strike can generate overvoltage that is much higher than this.
These power surges (also referred to as glitches, spikes or transients) are a major cause of data loss and electronic equipment failures. Additionally, they can cause damage which significantly reduces the lifespan of your electrical devices.
It is a wise decision to be prepared before the next electrical surge hits your home. ONE surge protector would protect your entire house! Not only your electrical devices and appliances but also your power lines, cables and telephone lines.
Surge protection devices are used to safeguard your home’s appliances against a spike in electrical currents. Such spikes can be caused by lightning strikes, faulty internal wiring, transference of electrical loads or other external and internal events.
For example, in the case of a lightning strike, the surge diverter captures the voltage spikes in the wiring that would otherwise be transferred into your home’s electrical equipment or appliances, possibly frying your computer or TV as it does.
Imagine losing all those important documents you’ve been working on or all of your family photos which are stored on your computer. Installing a surge diverter will ensure that this never happens!
Protect yourself at the source by installing a surge protection device today!
External Protection – This is designed to reduce externally generated surges before they enter the house through the powerline.
Internal Protection (Outlet Protectors) – The purpose of using outlet protectors indoors is to reduce surges inside the house and other stray surges such as from air conditioners cycling on and off. It is important to have sensitive electronics such as computers, stereos and TV’s plugged into some type of outlet protector with a cable or phone in-out connection.
