We may not have as harsh of weather as our friends and family in the midwest or on the east coast, but that doesn’t mean we are immune to weather events altogether, or other problems that could result in widespread, long-term power outages.
Blackouts might not be on the forefront of your mind or considered a “big deal,” to you, but when you consider all the home appliances you won’t have access to for possibly days, it can become a little more worrisome. For example, what about your air conditioner? Or your refrigerator? If you have electric kitchen appliances, what about your oven and stovetop?
All the creature comforts go away in a blackout, plus it can even be unsafe to be without electricity for a prolonged period of time, without preparation. And one way to prepare is with the installation of a whole-home, automatic standby generator.
