Lightning and Surge Damage

Overview

Power surges from lightning events can damage equipment in homes, businesses and industrial facilities. 

Lightning strikes and the ensuing power surge can damage sensitive electronic components. Higher voltages can exact a toll on even the most robust of machinery. Evaluating damage to equipment is a common request we receive from our clients to help them differentiate between new damage associated with a power surge incident and one stemming from simple wear and tear.
