Other causes include faulty or damaged wires, lightning storms, the electric company causes surges during the supply of electricity and downed power lines.
The surges occur in the form of short bursts of electricity and strong surges cause damage to electronic devices and other electricity dependent systems like a home’s HVAC system, refrigerators, and dishwashers. Installing a good surge protection system helps to divert strong power surges and is a prudent preventive expense that helps you avoid further expenses.
