How to Protect Against Power Surges
The first line of defence against power surges is your consumer unit (fuse board). All modern units will trip at the first hint of a surge in power. A secondary defence is specific units, such as surge protection built into specialist extension leads.
The fact is that if a surge makes it to your appliance, it may be rendered useless. Food for thought indeed.
As we’ve said, the first line of defence against damage from power surges is your consumer unit. If you haven’t had yours checked recently, we highly recommend that you do so at your earliest convenience. It’s a phone call that could save you thousands of pounds, and also your life.
