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.

It’s never a good idea to take a chance when it comes to your electrical system. A damaged system is a threat to both you and your family. Instead of taking a chance on the unknown, you should hire a professional to upgrade your electrical system to eliminate any doubt you have about your system. 

Become Compliant with Local Electrical Codes

If you live in a older home, then it’s possible that your electrical system does not meet newer regulations. As technology progresses, so does our understanding of how things work. As such, we’ve developed ways to install electricity; in most cases, the codes increase your safety. If you suspect your home was damaged by a storm, now is the best time to upgrade your old system. By upgrading now, you skip the added step of revisiting electrical problems down the road.

Reduce the Chances of Having a House Fire

Another reason you should upgrade your electrical system following damage from a storm is to prevent house fires. Lightning strikes have a lot of currency, and although professionals such as our team at Harrison Electric can fix the damage, there is always a possibility of residual damage to your electrical system.

When you choose to upgrade your electrical system following storm damage, you have the peace of mind knowing that you’ve eliminated problems originating from storm damage. Additionally, you can put your mind at ease knowing that all the electrical work you received comes with a warranty.

If you’ve recently experienced electrical damage due to lightning strikes, then it’s time for you to take action. To ensure you and your family are both safe, you should contact our team at Harrison Electric as soon as possible. During the appointment, we will assess the extent of the damage and make recommendations to resolve the problem. Even if your system needs an upgrade, we are here to help.
