We all need dependable power for our homes and businesses, but thousands of people have missed it recently. Strong winds and heavy rains have caused lots of damage and problems in this area. IPL alone reported almost 9,000 without power a few days ago, and there were many more around us.
The Costs of Interrupted Power
A tree branch falling on a power line can knock out your electric service for hours, or even days. That can be expensive for you because of all the appliances that rely on that power.
Sump pumps don’t run without power, and rooms can flood quickly. Furniture, carpets and walls can be ruined in a very short time as the water level rises. Computer stoppage can hurt your business results or cause you to close for the day. Food can’t be heated or cooled using electric appliances. Lights, heating and air conditioning won’t work properly, which can affect safety as well as comfort. Also, many people depend on powered medical equipment, so they would be at risk during that time. Insurance may cover some of your costs, but there could be others that you have to bear.
Dependable Power comes from a Standby Generator
People with standby generators are always feel secure when they hear a storm coming. They often don’t even realize there is a power outage until they hear it from someone else. Automatic switching causes the generator to come on and turn off by itself based on the incoming power level. Even if you aren’t home, the system will run and provide dependable power.
