Frequently Asked Questions
Anyone hiring a lightning protection installer should ask for proof of workers’ compensation and general liability insurance.
An electrical ground only offers grounding for the normal electrical service within the home. The wires that travel to the outlets and light fixtures are not capable of safely transferring a lightning charge.
Most surge suppression manufacturers claim that their surge suppression devices will eliminate at least 80% of any incoming surges. It is for this reason that we recommend multiple levels of protection. We recommend installing surge suppression devices on the lines entering the building, at electrical sub panels, and at the outlets with surge suppression power strips.
For a complete UL Master Label lightning protection system, surge suppression devices are required for all incoming service lines. These devices offer protection for the electrical system, the phone system, the cable line, and any other attached electronics. For optimal protection we recommend installing surge suppression devices on the main electrical panels, the sub panels, and at critical points of use.
