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. Use a backup generator

Whole-home backup generators provide power to your entire home and are the first and best choice to protect your home and family in an emergency. They are frequently easy to install, and with financing plans and potential rebates are more affordable than they used to be. Most companies like FAST of Florida offer free estimates for purchase and installation and provide ongoing annual maintenance to ensure standard operation when necessary.

PORTABLE VS. HOME GENERATORS: Portable generators are used for single appliances and electronics and are usually 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 key appliances and air conditioners. They are the ideal pick for longer-term power outages, preventing the need to stay at a hotel or other location. Backup generators are also safer and make less sound as opposed to 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 727-545-8731 to have your whole-home surge protector installed.

3. Put together a disaster kit

A disaster kit should at least come with 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. Turn off and disconnect electronics

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

5. Work out solutions for water problems

In addition to storing a decent supply drinking water, prepare for water to be in demand during an extreme emergency. If you’re able to, fill bathtubs with water and have buckets you can use to pour water into toilet tanks for flushing. Consider buying a portable travel/camping toilet or composting toilet.
