Why does Sparks recommend you have a Surge Protection Device fitted
THE MOST common time for property owners to fit a Surge Protection Device (SPD) is after their home as been hit by a power surge.
A power surge is a sudden and unwanted destructive spike that results in household electrical appliances being destroyed. Power surges come in two forms; the first from switching on the electricity supply network by high powered electric motors and transformers – in addition hundreds of transient spikes occur daily from devices in the home. The second is by lightning and electrostatic discharges, more common in rural properties but also known to strike properties on urbanisations.
As the saying goes “it’s no good closing the door once the horse has bolted.” Which is why we recommend not leaving it to chance and protecting your home sooner rather than later.
