One of the most inconvenient and costly events is the loss of power for an extended period of time. Heating and cooling are shut off; food in your freezer and refrigerator can be spoiled and lost; all contact with the connected community is gone; you cannot even recharge your cell phone. You are most vulnerable to those events when there is a widespread outage that affects you and all of your neighbors. ElectricQuest sometimes think of the blizzards that affect more northern climes. But here in Florida, we have hurricanes. Electric lines are knocked down and transformers occasionally pop. The cleanup crews diligently go about the repairs but there are often so many concentrated in the area that it takes several days to get everyone hooked up again.
That is where you need a generator that will keep you powered up for the duration of the outage. And there are several solutions to the potential problem. Talking to an ElectricQuest Florida electrical contractor will give you an idea of the installation of the generator that will best service your home. There is the question of just how much electricity that you will need to survive the aftermath of one of our hurricanes. And there is also the question of cost. An electrical contractor can work through all of those issues with you so that you can be completely prepared and still stay within your budget.
Being prepared with a temporary power supply not only means that the lights will stay on, but that your food supply will remain intact and you will be able to live in a somewhat more normal way. You will even be able to stay in contact with others, and depending on the way you connect to the internet, you can even keep up to date on the weather forecast.
