Electricity is an odd medium to work with, and you can trust experienced electricians have seen electricity do strange things at times. However, when contained to a professional coded system, electricity behaves as expected and, quite frankly, powers the nation. Outside of inventions and creative uses of electric power, there is a standardized, safe means of using electricity according to code, and such systems do require occasional maintenance, repairs, and upgrades in order to continue to function as a safe and useful aspect of your home.
Power failures are frustrating and difficult in ways people don't always understand. Being used to having a steady power source, you don't always think of the full effects of a power outage. If the power outage is short, it can be fun to have a cookout on a grill and a family dinner by candlelight. The TV doesn't work, so you might find a movie to watch on your computer, until you realize you don't have enough battery life and there is no way to recharge it. You want to call the power company to find out what is going on, but they put you on hold and again, there's no way to charge your phone battery. You might decide to go out to eat or even stay with friends, but you, your spouse, and your children need to bathe first and there's no hot water.
Your electrical system is an important component of your home. The current running through your system powers your lights and ensures your electronics work as they should. However, that current can also be a source of problems following a thunderstorm that damages your system.
