Modern homes and commercial properties have a number of sensitive electrical devices and appliances. These devices are connected to the electrical system and rely on a consistent and healthy supply of current. Unfortunately, systems do experience sudden surges and these surges can ruin these appliances and equipment. A surge in power can also be the result of a lighting strike. This is why we at Quick Connect, we recommend surge protection to our clients.

What is Surge Protection?

When the electrical voltage increases well above the normal levels for more than three nanoseconds, your system experiences a surge. This surge might look small on paper, but it can fry sensitive circuitry, cause wires to become hot and burn, and damage your devices permanently. Surge protection devices monitor the supply of electricity and detect the surge as it happens. They will immediately direct all excess energy to a grounding wire and stabilise the system to normal flow of current and voltage. If you don’t have any surge protection devices, this surge will continue uninterrupted and the excess electricity will damage the system.

Which Devices and Appliances Need Surge Protection?

Installing a surge protection device by a qualified electrician in your switchboard means your whole electrical system and all your appliances are protected. Here’s a list of appliance that require protection:

  • Computers, data centres, and servers
  • Televisions and entertainment systems
  • Stereo systems, speakers, and media centres
  • High-tech kitchen appliances like refrigerators, ovens, dish washers, etc.
  • Gaming consoles
  • Lighting

These devices aren’t just vulnerable to surges, they’re also very expensive to replace so if you want to save some time and money, you should install surge protection.

Why Call a Professional?

There are surge protection power pack boards which are plug-and-play, however they will only protect the devices which are plugged into it. We recommend have a surge protector on your whole installation, protection anything and everything that is part of your electrical system.

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"
