Protecting your property in Springtime

Tue, 04/11/2017 - 02:25 -- Danny

Springtime in Georgia means thunderstorms. Lightning is a major source of power surges which can damage sensitive equipment and cause fires.

For lightning protection, a whole-house/building surge protector is the best starting point for reducing the risk of damage. A number of utility companies have programs to provide and install whole-building surge protection systems. If this is not available in your area, consult a licensed electrician.

Other lightning protection tips:

1) Consider localized surge protection devices for power cords to sensitive, essential equipment.

2) Have a licensed electrician or home inspector review electrical power, telephone, cable/satellite connections into your Home.

3) Be sure you have adequate grounding of the power line connection and your electrical panel.
