Surge Protection Devices in Wantage

Many homes have expensive appliances, such as TVs, ovens and washing machines, which are all extremely sensitive to power surges. Surge protection devices are used in power supply networks to protect this equipment from any potential damage caused by power surges or transient overvoltage. These can be caused by lightning strikes and by the switching of power sources. Without effective surge protection in place, these appliances can sustain damage that is very expensive to repair. As your electrician in Wantage, we ensure that there’s no fear of that happening.

A surge protector works by conducting any transient overvoltage to earth as soon as it's detected, limiting the voltage to less-damaging levels. They are normally installed inside an existing consumer unit, although they can be set up in a separate, adjacent enclosure if there is insufficient room.
