Hurricane season isn’t quite over here in Florence, Mississippi. Being prepared is vital in keeping your family, possessions, and property safe from the potential destruction caused by hurricanes. One of the best items you can have when you lose power due to a hurricane is a standby generator. Here are five reasons why you need a standby generator.
Keep Food From Spoiling
You spend a lot of money to keep your refrigerator and freezer stocked with good food so that your family is well-fed. When the power is out for a prolonged period, all that food goes to waste. A generator can prevent your food from going bad.
Stay Cool During the Storm
When a storm hits during the fall, the temperatures and humidity levels are still high, and your house can start to feel like an oven. A generator will keep desk fans, ceiling fans, and the AC running so your family stays comfortable.
Keep Your Electronics Charged
It is vital that you have a working cell phone during a storm. In many cases, cell phone communication is the only way to stay in touch with your loved ones and friends. Having a generator allows you to keep your phones and other electronics charged.
Keep Your Medical Devices Running
If you or someone else in your household who requires electricity to run a medical device, then a standby generator is essential. From oxygen tanks to CPAP machines, and more, having a generator to keep them powered can keep loved ones healthy.
Make Sure You Have Running Water
Water pumps run on electricity, so you want to make sure that you still have running water in the event of a power outage. Simple things we take for granted, such as washing dishes, taking a shower, or flushing a toilet, rely on a water system that runs on electricity. A generator will help to ensure that your water pumps are still running.
