The recent spate of torrential rains and storms brought by the monsoon season and the earthquake in the Visayas have highlighted our homes’ vulnerability to natural disasters. Days after the calamities, some households were still suffering from brownouts or erratic power supply that resulted in in damaged appliances. In a country where numerous typhoons and earthquakes occur, very few homes are prepared to deal with electrical problems caused by these disasters.
To protect expensive appliances like computers and LED televisions, families need reliable electrical supply for their homes. They also need to guard against electrical surges, or a sudden overflow of voltage, that can damage appliances.
