PHD Powerhouse – Household Surge Protection Is As Easy as One Two and Three
It does not take a lot to protect our homes from load shedding and other power issues that we are privy to in today’s modern world. For those that are not sure how to go about installing household surge protection and think that household surge protection is an expensive and complicated issue – this is not necessarily the case. Household surge protection is not only easy to install; it is a cost-effective method of safeguarding your expensive household appliances and electrical equipment from irreparable damage.
It takes more than a couple of power strips and protective surge panels to protect your residence and your pricey electrical devices. This is usually from inevitable lightning strikes so prevalent on the Highveld during the hot summer months as well as power surges which have become commonplace, especially during unpredictable maintenance and load shedding episodes.
Household surge protection is a lot more than plugging computers and TV sets into power strips as these are not enough to protect your equipment from being damaged.
Power surges have a nasty habit of travelling along wires in a home, leaving appliances such as stoves and fridges, TV’s and computers vulnerable to being impaired.
To protect an entire home from power surges, black-outs and brown–outs, a complete protection network is required. This includes three kinds of surge protection devices at three varying levels within the residence to ensure complete protection.
- Surge protection devices are installed at the utilities meter.
- Surge protection devices are installed to the load-side of the main service panel.
- Surge protection devices are plugged into electronic equipment inside a house.
