We’re no strangers to power outages in our area, and when the power is out, you might not have the resources to keep your family members safe and comfortable. Oftentimes, there are babies or elderly residents in the home who really cannot go on without a working heater or air conditioner. This means you might have to vacate the home, and you pay for alternative shelter along with some important supplies.
The Risk of an Outage
A power outage can happen when you least expect it. It could be a risk to your health and your safety. A short period without light can be dangerous if someone attempts to walk down the stairs or cook or light a fire. Food safety is also a concern, but you use a lot of money by throwing out foods that may have gone bad in the refrigerator as well.
There is a potential risk of electrical shock when the power turns back on. And you should be very careful in severe weather. When it’s too cold, there is a risk of hypothermia and illness. When it’s too hot, you could be at risk for heat stroke. Investing in a generator removes these risks and unexpected financial burdens.
