Westcork Electrical can install surge protectors in your home's switchboard to give you piece of mind during time of fluctuations in power. With Technology on the rise and so many portable appliances lots of homes have expensive appliances which won't withstand power surges. Televisions, sound systems, ovens, cooktops, and so on. All these items can be costly to replace, installing a surge protector is a far more cost effective solution.

Power surges can occur as a result of downed power lines, transformer failure or sudden changes in power usage in your local area.

Why install a switchboard surge protector?

You can’t control the weather, but you can control the level of protection you have from it. Events such as lighting strikes can cause electrical surges and spikes, and if you don’t have a quality surge protector installed then this can lead to significant damage. If your planning a switchboard upgrade we always suggest installing a surge protector.


What about power boards with surge protection

These may do the job, but there is no guarantee. We don't recommend these as it promotes powerboard overloading by plugging in numerous items and implements another electric danger in your home. Best to install at the switchboard

Allan was extremely professional and took great care in his work. He was on time and provided a demo video prior to explain what was required to be done and why. He also cleaned up afterwards leaving no mess behind. Would definitely recommend and was just generally a good guy.
