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. Get a backup generator

Whole-home backup generators provide power to your entire home and are the first and best option to protect your home and family in an emergency. They are typically easy to install, and with financing plans and potential rebates are more affordable than before. Most companies like Yellow Dot Heating & Air Conditioning include free estimates for purchase and installation and complete ongoing annual maintenance to ensure normal operation when needed.

PORTABLE VS. HOME GENERATORS: Portable generators work with single appliances and electronics and are typically not able to provide power to integrated mechanical equipment like AC systems and water heaters. However, they are portable and the type of fuel required to power them provides the option for gasoline. Whole-home backup generators can provide electricity for the entire home, including big appliances and air conditioners. They are the preferred choice 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 have a whole-home surge protector. The whole-home protector also protects your appliances, air conditioner, water heater and other integrated equipment. Call 919-754-8686 to have your whole-home surge protector installed.

3. Create 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 sensitive electronics that could be damaged when power resumes.

5. Plan 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.
