Many of your customers may not be aware that those appliances and electricals, such as washing machines, coffee makers, TVs and security systems, found in the home, are all vulnerable to damage from short duration, high voltage peaks, known as surges. For homes with a solar PV system installed this amount can be even higher.
The most common cause of power surges include:
- overloaded plug outlets or circuits,
- damaged or exposed wiring,
- lightning strikes,
- high-power electrical devices, appliances and tools,
- and power outages.
