Standby Power Generators and Storm Season

Standby Power Generators and Storm Season

Storms and other weather disturbances have become more difficult to predict in recent years. Tornadoes form more often in areas outside of "Tornado Alley." Hurricanes are stronger than ever and have extended the duration of hurricane season. Even heavy snowstorms are more plentiful.

The unpredictability of weather conditions during storm season means you can be left in the dark if you are unprepared. That is why owning a standby power generator is a must. With a standby power supply, you can keep your home and your family comfortable while you wait for power to be restored should a power outage occur.

Why a Generator is a Must for Storm Season

Before heavy rains, flooding, and strong winds start to threaten your home, your generator should be ready and filled with clean fuel. Apart from the comfort of your family, having a generator at the ready when your power goes out will help you do things that you need to do and do them safely.

Here are some of the reasons why having a standby power generator ready at all times is necessary:

  • It helps prevent slip-and-fall accidents – Moving around in a dark house, even if you believe you have your home memorized like the back of your hand, can creat a slip-and-fall accident due to a lack of visibility. With a standby generator, you don’t have to struggle in the dark as you move around.
  • Your food does not spoil – Having a backup generator prepped for power outages will help you save money because food in your refrigerator won't spoil while the power is out. You can keep your fridge running even when the power is out with the help of your generator, keeping your food fresh.
  • You can keep crucial electronic devices charged and useful – While it is advisable that you have power banks ready when a storm is predicted, having a generator that can power your outlets so you can keep devices charged and ready for use is a good thing. That way, you can watch TV or listen to the radio for updates on the storm during a power outage and you can communicate with others on your cell phone without running out of power.
