Florida may be known as the sunshine state to tourists, but what many don’t know is as sunny as it gets, there are plenty of thunderstorms, especially during the summer months. Lightning is a daily occurrence in some parts of the state, and it can be downright hazardous without surge protection. Many have the unfortunate misunderstanding that a home can protect its contents from lightning, but that is simply not the case. Storms and the lightning that they produce can reek havoc on your home electrical circuits and appliances, and be dangerous to your physical well-being as well. Luckily with the advances in technology, there are surge protection systems that work fabulously to stop lightning from wrecking havoc on equipment and starting a disastrous, and life threatening, fire.
