Surge Protection Ireland – protect yourself and your home
Power surges are absolutely preventable with Direct Strike. From inspective measures to electrical earthing surge protection systems, here are our top tips to prevent your valuable electronic devices from being damaged in the event of a power surge, regardless of the cause.
Protect your home from a power surge
Get into the routine of checking your electrical devices.
Every couple of months have a quick check of your electrical devices to inspect the wiring and ensure there is nothing warped, damaged or exposed. Try turning them on for a few minutes and note any unusual activity such as strange sounds, or compromised functionality. If you make this part of your household upkeep routine, you can prevent your home from being exposed to a power surge.
Unplug your electronics during a storm
Some electronics can act as ‘conductors’ to lightning strikes or can malfunction during a storm, causing a chain reaction to occur. It is best to unplug your electric devices to avoid this.
Use surge protectors
These can come in the form of extension leads which have a shutdown transformer mode which will automatically switch on in the event of a power surge, therefore protecting your devices.
Install a domestic surge protector
We have a range of surge protectors and electrical earthing systems that will protect your home and devices in the case of an electrical storm, or mass malfunction which can cause damage, or in some cases, a fire.
