Sydney’s surge protector experts

At Electrician To The Rescue we understand the danger and risk that goes with electricity, which is why we always strive to do our best and keep you, your home and contents safe, no matter the day or time.

One great way to keep your homes electrical devices safe is by installing power surge protectors!

A surge protector is a device that protects your appliances from voltage spikes in your homes power. They work by channelling the extra voltage into the outlet's grounding wire, thus preventing it from flowing through the electronic device or appliance, while at the same time allowing the normal voltage to continue along its path.

The modern Sydney home and commercial building is chock full of electrical devices and appliances that can be ruined by an electrical surge. Many of these devices are permanently connected to the electrical system in your home, such as your washing machine, TV, fridge and more. And to run effectively they rely on a consistent electrical current.

However, electricity is a tricky thing and most systems will experience a sudden electrical surge at one point or another. A surge in the electrical current in your home could not only ruin your appliances but could also cause a fire or electric shock.

What devices need protection from electrical surges?

When it comes to installing surge protectors, you want something that’s going to protect the devices that are vulnerable to surges. Most of these devices also tend to be quite expensive to replace, so if you want to save some time and money, we highly recommend it!

The devices you want to protect include:

  • Computers, servers and data carriers
  • Televisions and entertainment systems
  • Speakers, stereo and media or gaming consoles
  • Big kitchen appliances, refrigerators, dishwashers, electrical ovens and stove tops
  • Washing machines and dryers
  • Light fittings, especially high-tech integrated lights
  • Wi-Fi, internet and phone modems
  • Vacuum cleaners

And more! For further information on installing and servicing surge protectors on these devices, read this helpful guide by Energy NSW.

A great way to protect your devices is by having a fully qualified and licensed electrician install a surge protector onto your home’s switchboard, this way your entire home is protected, especially when paired with powerpoint surge protectors.

A very common cause for power surges are lightning strikes, and while a surge protector will help protect your devices, they can’t be expected to protect from the full force of millions of volts that a lightning strike contains. Which is why we encourage all Sydney residents to unplug any vulnerable devices during an electrical storm!

Surge protectors are more commonly required to protect devices and other appliances from lower-voltage surges. These surges can often be caused by the devices in your home, such as your fridge.

Refrigerators, air conditioners and other big appliances use large amounts of energy to run and carry out functions, and this power usage can often create surges in power that go on to disrupt the steady flow of voltage to the rest of your home.

Other causes of power surges are faulty wiring, fallen power lines, faulty equipment such as the power main or your switchboard, even your electricity provider could be the source of a power surge.

The different types of surge protection

When it comes to protecting your home from a power surge, there are a couple of options.

If you’re looking to protect your entire house, the best option is to have a surge protector installed on your home’s switchboard or in the inner wiring of your home.

These types of surge protectors are more powerful than powerpoint or outlet-based surge protectors, and can only be installed by a fully licensed and qualified electrician. They are also the more expensive option when it comes to surge protectors.

Surge protectors that protect the whole house are a great option for businesses and homes with a lot of important electrical equipment throughout the premises.

The other most common surge protectors are powerpoint and outlet surge protectors. These are installed directly into your homes powerpoints and other power outlets. The great thing about these are their price tags, and as they’re often simply powerpoint plug ins you don’t need an electrician to install them. The downside is they don’t offer as much coverage, only the appliance you have them plugged into will be protected. They also won’t protect devices from larger power surges due to home electricity limitations.

Another way to protect your homes electrical appliances is with uninterrupted power suppliers. These are not surge protectors and only provide a little bit of surge protection. But unlike surge protectors, uninterrupted power supply devices keep important machines, like computers, running during a power outage or surge, so that you can shut the machine down properly. This way you won’t lose any work or damage the running capacity of your appliances.
