Surge Diverters

Modern residential and commercial properties have numerous electrical appliances and devices. All of these are connected to the property’s electrical system and require a steady and reliable supply of electricity to function well. Unfortunately, sometimes the electrical system experiences sudden surges which can affect the equipment and appliances.

Sometimes, the surge in power can be caused by lightning strikes as well. Unless you have experienced it, the damages that these electrical surges can cause are often unknown. The electrical surge pushes excessive electricity into your devices and appliances which can potentially destroy sensitive and expensive equipment on your property, such as AC, ovens, fridges, kitchen appliances, modems, computers, television or any other machine or device connected to a powerpoint.

We at ARC Electrical & Data recommend to our clients that they get surge diverters or surge protectors installed on their property. These are an essential installation and can go a long way in protecting your expensive appliances and equipment.

What is Surge Protection?

Whenever the electrical voltage on your property increases above normal levels for over three nanoseconds, the system experiences an electrical surge. While the surge may not look very high on paper, it can significantly heat and burn wiring, fry sensitive circuitry and cause irreversible damage to appliances and devices. Surge diverters are vital installations that should be part of any electrical system.

Not only do they monitor the electrical supply, they also detect the surge when it occurs. They immediately direct all the excess energy into the grounding wire and protect the electrical system as they bring back a regular flow of voltage and current. If you do not have surge diverters installed on your property, the excess electricity will continue uninterrupted and will damage your systems.

Appliances And Devices That Require Surge Protection

When you get surge diverters installed, your entire electrical system, appliances and devices are protected because we install it at the switchboard. The different types of appliances which require protection include:

  • Entertainment systems and televisions
  • Media centres, speakers stereo systems
  • Kitchen appliances including dishwashers, ovens, refrigerators, thermomix’s and more
  • LED Lighting
  • Gaming consoles
  • Data centres, computers, and servers

Why You Need To Hire Professionals for Surge Diverter Installations

 There are many different types of surge protection devices available on the market. Some of them, such as power pack boards, are plug and play. However, they only protect devices that you plug into them. We recommend the installation of a surge diverter for the entire system as it will protect everything connected to your property’s electrical system.

It is crucial to have excellent quality protection against electrical surges. We have highly experienced and licenced electricians that provide you detailed information about the latest surge diverters and install them to industry standards. Never forget that one surge is all that it takes to damage your expensive equipment and devices, and the effects can be highly damaging.

Our team will assess your property and recommend the best solution to ensure that your home or commercial property is well protected from surges. For any more information and details about these and other electrical services, feel free to call ARC Electrical & Data today.

Our Customers


Excellent service. We had a difficult situation and was responded to promptly. Great communication and the team had to work in difficult weather conditions to restore our power. We highly recommend ARC electrical.


ARC are a very reliable company. They arrived when they said they would, they documented all the work that needed to be done and took photos and then sent me a quote when they said they would. The team were brilliant and professional in their work as well as advising us of outdated smoke alarms we didn’t know needed replacing (the alarm themselves had expired and we didn't know as we had just purchased the house) so they replaced them on the spot for us also. Don’t just call them for a repair u can call them if u have an electrical issue and are not sure what needs to be done as they are great in finding solutions as well.


If you want exceptional standards, fantastic communication and people who are polite and respectful then Adam and he's Off Sider are the people you want. They arrived when they said they would, they called when they said they would, they did the job and more for the quoted price - no surprises. As a single female (I know - it shouldn't matter but we know it does), I rely trades people and hope I get quality ones. I struck gold finding ARC. I most certainly use them again and highly recommend them for sure! Nice work guys.


Highly recommend ARC electrical. Had some small jobs completed around the home by Josh. On time and pleasant to deal with. Will be getting them back for more work needing to be completed soon.
