Home Lightning Protection

To protect devices in the home, complete home lightning protection systems include surge protection. A lightning rod is a copper rod installed in a home or near it. Copper rods are designed to provide a path to ground with the least resistance. The path to ground with the least resistance is the path that electricity chooses.

Across the country, home lightning protection rods aren’t uncommon at all, and some are even installed on homes itself. Multiply the lightning rods across the top of the structure for an effective lightning protection system. There is no valid reason why home lightning protection rods (and the associated assembly consisting of a connection to earth and a ground rod) are not regularly installed on buildings and houses. However, most high buildings and other structures are protected from lightning in one way or another. Thunder indicates lightning. Normally, lightning does not cause fires, but it may damage the electrical components of your house, causing them to catch fire. Roofing shingles, chimneys, and others can also be damaged.

All structures and buildings do not have to have lightning protection, however it is highly recommended that residential building have lightning protection installed. Surge protection is necessary for new electrical systems that are installed in case of indirect lightning strikes. There are lightning protection conductors installed on tall buildings, including churches and skyscrapers, as a precaution to avoid significant damage and danger in the event of a lightning strike. As lightning is relatively less likely to strike houses than skyscrapers however it does still happen regularly – in fact many insurance packages require home lightning protection for places with a higher risk of damage like thatched roofs.

Weather hazards and damaged caused by lightning are the most common and statistically the most severe. It is recommended, however, to install a home lightning protection system if you live in a very tall home, have trees taller than your home less than 10 feet away from its structure, or live in an area with frequent lightning strikes.

When taking shelter during a thunderstorm, here’s how to deal with indoor lightning safety. Weather phenomena such as lightning are often overlooked, yet they can be extremely dangerous. There is a 1 in 1.9 million chance of being struck and killed by lightning. This number is surprising for homes at 1 in 200, for this reason it is best to have your home protected and drastically reduce the risk of damage.

Industrial and Home lightning protection systems should only be installed by experienced and reputable contractors. Most homeowners, electricians, general contractors and roofers lack the expertise to design or install these systems properly.
