Electrical Surge is something you should take seriously to keep your home safe from electrical hazards due to damage to your appliances. Simply put electrical surges are moments when your power line increases its output for a brief moment, due to factors like an appliance requiring extra power to turn on. This can affect or even damage your other appliances, which might lead to one of them short-circuiting, which could be very dangerous.
To avoid this Remember to:
- Unplug your appliances when they are not in use.
- Use AVRs for sensitive equipment.
- If possible, power strips with surge protection circuitry.
