How Lightning Protection works for home and business applications
A lightning protection system neither attracts, repels or prevents a lightning strike. The lightning protection system simply provides a safe path for the lightning current to follow - allowing the harmful current to be guided safely into the ground and away from your home.
Lightning protection is not a do-it-yourself project
Lightning protection is a specialty discipline. To ensure that a lightning protection system is installed in accordance with national safety standards - it is important to hire an experienced lightning protection contractor that is listed with Underwriters Laboratories. An improperly installed lightning protection system can be more dangerous than no system at all. Lightning protection systems should be installed by trained, experienced lightning protection specialists - roofers, general contractors and electricians are typically not qualified to install lightning protection systems.
