Is It True That Lightning Rods Attract Lightning?
Lightning rods DO NOT attract or prevent lightning strikes from happening. What lightning product does is intercept lightning and provide a path for them to the ground, so that their dangerous electricity is harmlessly discharged.
Can Trees Protect Constructions From Lightning?
They cannot. Trees do not conduct electricity well, and can burn easily. This may cause serious damage to your home or other valuable constructions. Therefore you need to buy and install lightning rods before building your house.
Is It True That Our House Is Protected From Lightning By TV Antennas and Satellite Dishes?
That is not true. Lightning do target these types of devices, as they are not sufficiently grounded and placed high up. However, they cannot handle the charge of a lightning bolt.
Can Surge Arresters Protect My Home?
Surge arrester and similar devices can do nothing against direct lightning strikes. Arresters should always be used with exterior lighting protection systems to protect your entire home properly. We recommend you adopt Sanyuan lightning rod together with Sanyuan surge arrestor for better protection.

Are your lightning rod products expensive?
For the potential benefit you may gain, a lightning rod on your house can be one of the least costly improvements you can make. It also offers the best type of reassurance, protecting you against the lightning risks, and providing you a big return on a minimal investment.
