Surge Protection

Has your home been hit by a lightning storm in the middle of the night and you’re worried about potential electrical surges damaging your whole system? Service Today is on the job. Whether you need some protection after a surge or you are looking for something to help prevent further damage, our expert technicians can arrive on your doorstep in no time to install a surge protector device that can absorb the extra electricity flow.

What is a surge protector?

This first stage addresses a power spike before it enters your property. Generally located at the electricity switchboard, this surge protector device will prevent voltage fluctuations in the main power grid from entering your home’s system and will alert you about the status of your power supply and when the voltage goes beyond the threshold.

Service Today is here to make sure you are protected against any future electrical surges, which can potentially wipe out all of your appliances at once and leave you with a heavy replacement bill. Call the licensed electricians at Service Today, so we can install a surge protection device directly at your appliance power supply sooner rather than later and make sure you’re covered.

Switchboard repairs 

Your switchboard takes on a huge electrical load, and if it’s old or faulty, it can cause a blown fuse or a power outage at your home. That’s why Service Today is here to make sure that your switchboard can take on the weight it’s supposed to, or if it fails, to repair it so that your home is back up and your electrical system is running smoothly.
