No. This is a common misconception about lightning protection. Lightning protection systems and strike termination devices (rods) simply intercept a lightning strike and provide a safe and effective path that takes lightning’s harmful electricity to ground.

Lightning protection is not a do-it-yourself project. Only experienced and reputable LPI-certified lightning protection contractors should install lightning protection systems. Qualified specialists use UL-listed materials and ensure that methods of installation comply with nationally recognized Safety Standards of LPI, NFPA and UL. A proper system takes into account your home’s design, construction, electrical components, soil condition, location and more. An improperly-installed system may be dangerous. Only trained experts, like LPI-certified contractors that specialize in lightning protection, should install these systems.

Lightning protection systems are generally recognized as “protection for the entire external perimeter” and, as such, are often considered for credits. Policies related to lightning protection discounts vary by insurance company. Since some providers don’t have set policies regarding credits or incentives, the homeowner should contact his or her agent or broker for assistance to determine eligibility for a discount.

Yes, your system should be inspected every 2 years.

Entrusting your lightning protection system design and installation to an LPI-certified professional ensures a safe and effective system that won’t compromise aesthetics or curb appeal to a business or home. When properly installed, components such as strike termination devices, conductors and grounding are barely visible to the untrained eye.

The electrical ground installed by your electrician is there to protect the internal workings of the electrical system in your building or home to accommodate everyday electricity usage. The electrical ground is not designed to handle the mega electricity (100 million + volts of power or 200 kA of electrical energy) that a typical lightning strike can pack.

No. Surge protection is only one element of a complete lightning protection system. A grounding network for lightning (lightning protection system) must be implemented to provide structural protection.

Modern homes are more susceptible to lightning damage than ever. Metal building components, irrigation and security systems, invisible and electric fences, computers and sensitive electronic appliances are common. These features can increase a homeowner’s potential for serious lightning damage. Statistically, lightning strikes between 30 and 60 times a year within a two-mile radius of the front door of your home or property.
