In Darwin and remote areas across the NT, power surges cause havoc for our way of life. Power surges can destroy in a blink those appliances that we love and use often. Everything from Airconditoners, ovens with digital readouts or PC boards, TV’s and computers. All the things we take for granted.
This year hasn’t been quite as bad as the previous few, due to the lack of decent storms that we normally get in Darwin which is great. Though we still get regular calls from clients requiring diagnostics on machines that failed during a storm. Generally where the owner doesn’t have a surge protector installed.
The worst thing for you as the end user, if the item is repairable – sometimes you will be without for a fortnight or longer waiting on parts. If it’s a catastrophic failure – you’re fighting with your insurance company who always want more information and never want to pay. Frustrating to say the least.
