Lightning rods can make sense on any structure, but they are particularly beneficial to homes on the edges of bodies of water, houses on flat land or mountain tops with few if any other structures nearby, and tall buildings in urban areas. Having a lightning rod does not mean that lightning is attracted to your home. However, if lightning does strike, the rod gives the electricity a fast, low-resistance, and effective path to the ground, helping to prevent damage, electrocution, and fire.

The rod, often referred to as a finial or air terminal, is just one part of a lightning protection system. It is typically made from copper or aluminum which are both conductive materials. A wire is connected to the rod that runs to a rod underground. Lightning rods are typically installed at the highest point of a structure, but some can be placed elsewhere or even on the ground. Those not placed on the roof need to be taller than the structure.

Installing a lightning rod should not be done by an amateur. To make sure everything is hooked up right, and to understand if you might need additional protection such as a whole house surge protector, it's best to contact a professional.
