I have noticed more and more homes in the Northeast are moving away from fossil fuels. New construction will have heat pumps instead of boilers. And now, Gov. Hochul of New York State has announced a statewide gas ban by 2030.
As homes move away from fossil fuels and rely more on electricity for heating, it becomes increasingly important to ensure that the electrical systems in the home are properly protected against lightning strikes. Lightning is a leading cause of power outages, and it can also cause serious damage to electrical systems, appliances, and other equipment. A lightning protection system can help to prevent this damage by providing a path for the electrical current from a lightning strike to safely travel to the ground, rather than flowing through the building’s electrical systems. This can help to minimize the risk of damage to the electrical systems, appliances, and other equipment in the home, as well as reducing the risk of injury to people and animals in the home. It’s important to note that your local building codes and regulations may require lightning protection in certain areas or in certain type of building, such as those in high risk areas.
