Why Lighting Protection Is Important
When lightning strikes make direct contact with a structure, it causes damage to the building which can vary in severity. Among the biggest negative impacts of a strike is on electric systems. Lightning is a form of electricity and when it strikes a home or business, it creates strong electromagnetic pulse energy which can lead to power surges due to overvoltage to a system’s circuits.
The result? Plugged-in electronics can be rendered inoperable. Homes and businesses can feel the sting financially with the burden of replacing such equipment. That is why many decide to be proactive in having a professional lightning protection system installed to minimize or evade lightning damage to their properties.
