5 Steps to Protect Your Home During Power Emergencies

Power outages cause 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 usually simple to install, and with financing plans and potential rebates are more affordable than in the past. Most companies like Southern HVAC provide free estimates for purchase and installation and provide ongoing annual maintenance to ensure operation when needed.

PORTABLE VS. HOME GENERATORS: Portable generators power single appliances and electronics and are usually not able to provide power to integrated mechanical equipment like air conditioners and water heaters. However, they are portable and the type of fuel needed to run them provides the option for gasoline. Whole-home backup generators can power the entire home, including large appliances and air conditioners. They are the best option for longer-term power outages, preventing the need to stay at a hotel or other location. Backup generators are also safer and more silent verses the portable option.

2. Get a whole-home surge protector

There’s no need for a surge protector on every outlet when you install 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. Prepare a disaster kit

A disaster kit should at minimum 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. Unplug and turn off electronics

Even with a surge protector it’s a good idea to unplug sensitive electronics that could be damaged when power resumes.

5. Prepare for water problems

In addition to storing enough drinking water, prepare for water to be in demand during an extreme emergency. If possible, fill bathtubs with water and have buckets available to pour water into toilet tanks for flushing. Consider buying a portable travel/camping toilet or composting toilet.
