As a Maryland resident, you know that severe weather is hard to predict and even harder to prepare for. But even during a calm hurricane season or an unusually mild winter, power outages can occur without warning. In 2015, there were 3,571 power outages affecting over 13.2 million people. In 2016, the average power outing lasted from 180 to 300 minutes.
The Importance of a Functional Home Generator
Whether you’re working from home or you’re just worried about the perishable items in your fridge, 300 minutes can be a long time to go without power. In a weather emergency, Maryland residents can lose power for days on end — days spent without running water, refrigeration, air conditioning, and phone service.
While a power outage may feel like an act of God, its consequences are completely preventable. Homeowners can avoid inconvenience, discomfort, and preventable loss altogether by investing in a home generator. The moment the power cuts out, a home generator fires up to provide reliable backup energy that lasts for as long as it takes for the power to come back on.
During a weather emergency, safety is of primary concern. Homeowners with security systems will lose that layer of protection during a power outage which, even during a brief blackout, puts residents and their possessions in jeopardy. In the aftermath of a hurricane, when looting and theft may run rampant, a security system can be a real lifesaver. A home generator ensures a continuous stream of power to the security system so that homeowners, their family members, and their prized possessions are kept safe.
When it comes to investing in a home generator, no time is like the present. During weather emergencies, generator demand goes through the roof, supplies turn scarce, and costs run high. By preparing your household for the unthinkable, you ensure that you and your family will be kept safe during an emergency.
