Surge Diverters and Surge Protectors and why you NEED one if you live in the Northern Territory.
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 air conditoners, ovens with digital readouts or PC boards, TV’s and computers. All the things we take for granted.
When we get calls from clients requiring diagnostics on machines that failed during a storm, generally we discover 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.
Surge Diverters put you in control of the elements
Add up how much your precious appliances, entertainment systems, and computers cost? That’s a lot of money you don’t need to risk when you have a surge diverter installed
Yes, this sounds a little over the top but we’ve seen, first hand, the emotional damage that results when there’s been a storm or power surge and there’ve been no surge diverters installed.
While it’s tempting to cut corners with a few power boards with “surge protection”, nothing beats the peace of mind of a whole-of-house surge diverter in Darwin and Palmerston
