Don’t let lightning strike your wallet!

June 07, 2024

Many people ask the question, “Should I install Electrical Surge Protection in my home?”

If you live in Georgia you should definitely consider investing in electrical surge protection for your home! Thunderstorms are very regular and occur about 75 days per year in Georgia. All thunderstorms are dangerous because they can produce strong winds, lightning, tornadoes, hail and flash flooding and are most frequent during the spring and summer months, peaking in July. The typical thunderstorm may last an average of 30 minutes, but in that short space of time, the lightning during a thunderstorm can wreak havoc on your household appliances.

A small investment in Whole Home Electrical Surge Protection could save you thousands!

Lightning during thunderstorms is often the cause of electrical surges, with a lightning strike as far away as a mile being able to pose a threat to your household appliances. Computers, televisions, gaming consoles, refrigerators, stoves, microwaves and any device that is plugged in and being charged is at risk of melted components, wires, and potential fires. Think of every item that is plugged in at your home and the cost to have everything replaced could run you into thousands of dollars!

Many insurance companies do not cover damage caused by lightning strikes, so surge protection is an excellent way to protect your appliances without having to unplug everything during a thunderstorm. An electrical surge protection system will work if you are out-of-town, asleep, or not at home when thunderstorms occur, giving homeowners the peace of mind, that they will not be left footing the bill for expensive damaged electronic devices, equipment, devices or worse, a house fire.

There is nothing on the market today that can protect an everyday residential home from a direct lightning strike at a reasonable cost, but a Whole Home Electrical Surge Protection system is an excellent way to protect your home and family.
