Lightning Surge Protection for Refrigerator & Freezer

Refrigerators are important components in our domestic lives and some call it the home's most important and most commonly owned appliance. In the US alone, 41% of claims are attributed to refrigerators. The boy scout adage comes to mind here ...

Home Refrigerator Freezer Lightning Surge Protectors

We all get into a state when load-shedding hits and we are without the essential power to our fridges and freezers for those four hours. But truth be told, a fridge with its doors kept closed retains its core temperature and not much can 'go off' in this duration. A minor issue, really. A lightning strike and this landscape changes somewhat. Getting the repair guy out can take some time and the likelihood that the mains circuit got hit means ordering it. This is where the time gets wasted as does what was in the fridge too.

Today’s fridges, like most state-of-the-art appliances, incorporate solid-state control circuitry. Refrigerators with solid state components, just like computers, televisions and stereo systems, are easily damaged by power surges if they are not protected by a surge protector. Without the protection, it takes but a millisecond for the damage to be done. Not cool.

Having the right protection, in this instance, really means you get peace of mind, for a long time. Your cold stuff is looked after, and this on one item you need not worry too much over thereafter.
