Lightning & Surge Protection
Lightning and surge protection will provide security for your home during storm activity, protecting all your electrical equipment from ‘current spikes’. A surge protector is an appliance designed to protect electrical devices from voltage spikes. The protector attempts to limit the voltage supplied by either blocking or shorting to ground any unwanted voltages above a safe threshold.
Current spikes might happen for any number of reasons including malfunctioning appliances, faulty lights, water damage, lightning strikes, power line faults or transformer issues. There are many surge protectors available with some providing less protection than others and specific protectors requiring replacement after a surge event.
