5 Steps to Protect Your Home During Power Emergencies
Power outages cost Americans $150,000,000,000 each year. That’s $500 for every man, woman and child.
1. Install a backup generator
Whole-home backup generators provide power to your entire home and are the first and best way to protect your home and family in an emergency. They are frequently easy to install, and with financing plans and offered rebates are more affordable than before. Most companies like Southern HVAC offer free estimates for purchase and installation and provide ongoing annual maintenance to ensure adequate operation when necessary.
PORTABLE VS. HOME GENERATORS: Portable generators are used for single appliances and electronics and are generally not able to provide power to integrated mechanical equipment like air conditioning and water heaters. However, they are portable and the type of fuel required to run them provides the option for gasoline. Whole-home backup generators can provide electricity for the entire home, including big appliances and air conditioners. They are the preferred choice for longer-term power outages, preventing the need to stay at a hotel or other location. Backup generators are also safer and work more quietly verses the portable option.
2. Get a whole-home surge protector
There’s no need for a surge protector for every outlet when you use a whole-home surge protector. The whole-home protector also protects your appliances, air conditioner, water heater and other integrated equipment. Call (407) 917-1800 to have your whole-home surge protector installed.
3. Put together a disaster kit
A disaster kit should at least include a first aid kit, one gallon of water per person, a 3 day supply of food and baby supplies, pet food, battery-powered radio, flashlight with batteries, duct tape, garbage bags, small screwdrivers pliers and wrenches, a manual can opener, extra cell phone chargers and battery backup.
4. Shut down and remove the plug for electronics
Even with a surge protector it’s a good idea to unplug delicate electronics that can be damaged when power resumes.
5. Plan for water problems
In addition to storing a decent supply drinking water, prepare for water to be expensive or difficult to find during an extreme emergency. If possible, fill bathtubs with water and have buckets ready to pour water into toilet tanks for flushing. Consider buying a portable travel/camping toilet or composting toilet.
