You don’t have control over the power grid, but when summer storms come knocking, do you have a way to keep your home functioning?
Whether it’s torrential summer rains, hurricanes, or hailstorms, summer storms bring many different problems to homeowners around the country. As the sun heats our hemisphere, warm and moist air rises to the surface and clashes with cold air in the atmosphere, mixing warm and cold air and creating storms. Inclement weather has become progressively more severe and that means homeowners need to know how to keep a well stocked disaster kit with batteries, cash, water, and food among other provisions and to know where their electric panel is in case of a power outage or damage to your home.
Risks of Summer Power Outages
One of the key ways to survive a disaster, is to have a charged phone. While it may seem like the last thing you need, FEMA constantly sends out updates during a disaster with information on shelter and instructions to stay safe. This means that if you’re caught out without power, you could be risking your life.
A backup generator and a standby generators can help you and your family keep cool from excessive heat, keep your refrigerator working so your food doesn’t spoil, and keep your electronics charged in the case of an emergency. Independent of your weather event, trees, branches, and other debris is likely to interrupt power lines. Electricity is one of the first things to go – from your local electrical lines to the entire grid – and loose electricity from downed lines can be a safety risk if water is pooled around you.
Don’t risk your life! Shelter in place during dangerous times this summer with a generator from Automated Home Generators. Not only will you be safe, but you’ll also be comfortable during the most difficult of times.
