While we can’t control the weather we can prepare ourselves for what it causes.

We’re all familiar with how insane Texas storms can be. Power outages are often the result of such harsh weather as high winds and lightning strikes. If you’re like me the first thing that comes to mind when we lose power is how long will my power be off? Utility crews are often on standby and work as fast as they can, but sometimes there can be delays.

We need our power for more than just lighting, cooking, and refrigerating our food. So to help you decide if a home generator is a good idea for you we put together a list of reasons how they can help when we’re in the dark.

  1. Food can spoil quickly when we lose power. The USDA recommends discarding perishable foods after just 4 hours of your refrigerator losing power.  Keeping the refrigerator running can save you the expense of restocking once the power is back.
  2. Does your house have well water? If you have a municipal water source no need to worry, but a well that provides water to your property will need the power to run. You will be able to continue using the water in your home for a short amount of time. Once the remaining water from your good storage tank is depleted you will not have access to fresh water until the power is restored.
  3. Does a loved one depend on a medical device? If you or a family member is dependent on a medical device, such as a heart monitor, an oxygen tank, or a rechargeable power chair, planning is vital. When life is on the line, it’s especially important to be prepared.
  4. Are you still working from home? Over the past year, many of us began working from home. A power outage can result in a complete work shut down. If you are working from home you’ll need those PCs, WiFi, printers, and internet running. Let’s not forget how important it is to have a fully charged phone.

Today more than ever it is essential to keep the lights on, along with so many other electrically powered devices in our homes. A home generator is a good idea for any home. Being prepared when a storm knocks the power out can in some cases be a lifesaver. Contact us for more details.
