Do you really need surge protection?

Electricity is something we can’t do without in our homes. We use a variety of electrical devices, large appliances as well as electrical fixtures, HVAC systems, heaters and more. Even though it is so important, we tend to take electricity for granted, and really ever of focus on regular maintenance all for various electrical installations on a property.

It is important to understand the electricity can be very harmful and can cause electrocution or fire without the right kind of protection. This is where a surge protection devices come into the picture. We at Quick Connect Electrical provide excellent surge protection installation solutions to both, residential as well as commercial properties.

Why you need surge protection

In typical homes, the value of electrical equipment and electronics has significantly increased. But these systems are extremely sensitive and vulnerable to electrical surges caused by lightning. While the circuit breakers and fuses will provide AC protection, these aren’t sufficient when it comes to providing total protection. Electrical surges can be caused by:

  • Lightning strikes
  • Problems transformers close to your home
  • Upgrade to the power grid by the Utility Provider

Whenever there is a surge, it lasts for just a few seconds. However, the damage it causes, can be extremely costly. In certain cases, you are able to seek compensation from insurance companies, but that may not always be the case. Most homeowners today protect crucial electronics such as home theater systems, video equipment, etc. using surge strips. But expensive large appliances such as washers, dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators, air conditioners, computers that etc. also need proper surge protection.

It just isn’t practical to buy individual surge protectors for every single electronic device and appliance in your home. This is where full house surge protectors come into the picture. These devices are connected to the electrical mains in your home and provide complete surge protection for all the circuits connected to them. You can also opt for devices such as:

  • Wall outlet surge protectors

Very happy with the great service and professionality! Mohammed was very patient and meticulous, going (quite literally) above (our deck's roof) and beyond to find and fix problems with some existing bad wiring. Explained all the problems in a very clear and informative way. Would highly recommend this service to friends and family!

"I would highly recommend Karl and his team for any work his professionalism and dedication to his work is remarkable.

We are currently building a 225sqm complex extension in Strathfield and he has continuously offered great advice on how to proceed with all things electrical from led lights and power points to HDI cables for the TV. He has always been on time and has gone above and beyond expectation. He and his team even worked 10hrs on a day that was 45 degrees. Once again I would highly recommend Karl"
