Power Surge

A power surge occurs when something triggers a sudden spike in voltage. This increases the electrical current moving through your house. Power surges can harm electrical equipment and reduce their lifespan. Equipment including televisions, computers and DVD and blu-ray players are particularly susceptible to spikes in the electrical current. The surges in power can harm the circuits, chips and microprocessors. They may even wipe the memory from your computer.

Individuals frequently experience power surges with lightning. However, there are various reasons for power surges apart from lightning. One of the most common reasons for power surges is using electrical appliances which use a lot of energy. A few of these appliances include the microwave, clothes dryer and automatic dish washing machine. They need power to be switched off and on. These spikes inside the electrical current might not be obvious. However, these spikes can harm electrical equipment over time.
