Surge Protection/Lightning Arrest
We may think that since electricity is in ready supply, that there is a steady stream of it coming to serve us at any time. But no. That's not the way it works. There are tons of small power surges through the day that are a major contributor to breaking down your microchips. Your house is constantly being bombarded with 'dirty' electricity, i.e. Have you ever seen your light flickering?
As a result, your home, and the electronics or any electrical equipment within, is subject to these surges. The extra energy has to go somewhere. Have you ever seen the ends of a light bulb turn black? That's why. You have surges created from within your home as well. Appliances like your air conditioner, washing machine and fridge are turning off and on, creating small surges as well.
So what can happen?
Surges are the biggest enemy of electronics. With every surge the electronics in your home can become slightly weaker until they fail. Surges are a major contributor to breaking down microchips. When you look around, you'll find many things in your home have some electronics in them.
Don't power bars protect my equipment?
Power bars are not always the answer, as most do not offer true surge protection capability. We have a selection of whole home surge protection and lightning arresters.
What is Lightning Arrest?
Like Surges, Lightning can also affect your homes electrical system. Even a lightning strike miles away from your home can damage your homes electronics and electrical systems. Symptoms of this are similar to surges, i.e. lights flickering, electronics being damaged or quitting, electrical components malfuntioning etc..
With our Surge/Lightning Arrester, in the event of a lightning strike it will protect your homes electronics and electrical components.
