Protecting your home on the Costa Blanca from Electrical Power Surges

Is Your Home on the Costa Blanca Protected against Power Surges?

A Surge Protector is designed to block or disconnect an electrical supply before a power surge is able to enter a house / office and damage all the electrical equipment directly connected to the system.

Power Surges happen on a frequent basis in Spain, whether you live in Javea, Calpe, Moraira or the Jalon Valley. Unfortunately, the electrical network in Spain can allow Surges to enter your home or business. When a power surge strikes it can destroy every appliance in your property.

The only way to protect everything in the home from a power surge is to have a professional electrician install a Surge Protection Device (SPD) on the entire electrical installation.

By blocking or disconnecting an electrical supply before a power surge is able to enter a house / office and damage all the electrical equipment directly connected to the system, a Surge Protector is possibly the best insurance policy you could buy to protect your home.

Surge Protection Devices are recommended for properties with expensive electrical equipment including:

* Air conditioning

* Microwaves & ovens

* Washing Machines and dryers

* Computers

* TV's & music surround systems,

Surge Protectors are also strongly recommended for installations in rural areas supplied with Solar Energy Systems which are exposed to higher risks of lightning. Make sure you protect your expensive electronic equipment.

Plug in surge protection adapters are available from the local DIY store, but they only provide protection to any items plugged directly in to them.

A final piece of advise is to check your building insurance policy to see if you are covered for power surges.
