Surge Protection – Install
Surges, spikes and sags can occur daily. Most are unnoticeable, but inevitably, some stronger power pulses can occur and these will cause damage — either immediately or over a period of time.
Most of today’s modern appliances, including computers, smartphones and microwave ovens, contain components that are a lot smaller and a lot more delicate than older models.
This means that they easily get affected by small fluctuations in power. Once you have any of these devices in your home or business, we suggest you get surge protection installed.

On top of that cost saving, the manufacturer’s advertise a running life of 20,000 hours for these globes! So less maintenance and globe replacement too.
