Central Florida is the most lightning prone area in the United States with about 90 thunderstorm days a year. Because of this, Florida is often referred to as "The Lightning Capital of the U.S." Damage costs from lightning are estimated at 4-5 billion each year. When lightning strikes your business, it sends an electrical surge through the building's wiring and appliances. The best way to protect your business form lightning damage is to install a surge protection system which includes a variety of components that serve as a passage way for the lightning's electrical currents to escape and flow to the ground. This prevents the lightning currents causing extensive damage. A small investment now can avoid expensive repairs later on.
