How do surge protectors work?
Surge protectors work to filter a safe level of electricity to your appliances and divert excess energy safely away from power consuming goods. Surge protection devices that are installed and connected directly to a fuse-box offers a more robust solution and have a quicker response time than other devices helping them to protect against lightning strikes at close range.
Good electrical practice is to unplug all valuable electrical devices before a storm hits, however as this is not always possible surge protectors offer piece of mind for ongoing use of appliances if you are away from your home when a storm hits.
So there you have it. Surge protection for your household makes good sense. Investing in a surge protection system in your home with the help of Sewell Electrical will keep that fridge and flat-screen television buzzing but not frying.
