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. Install a backup generator

Whole-home backup generators provide power to your entire home and are the first and best choice to protect your home and family in an emergency. They are typically easy to install, and with financing plans and available rebates are more affordable than ever. Most companies like Fox Service Company offer free estimates for purchase and installation and perform ongoing annual maintenance to ensure normal operation when necessary.

PORTABLE VS. HOME GENERATORS: Portable generators are used for single appliances and electronics and are usually not able to provide power to integrated mechanical equipment like air conditioners and water heaters. However, they are portable and the type of fuel needed to run them provides the option for gasoline. Whole-home backup generators can handle the entire home, including key appliances and air conditioners. They are the best option for longer-term power outages, preventing the need to stay at a hotel or other lodging. Backup generators are also safer and more silent verses the portable option.

2. Get a whole-home surge protector

There’s no need for a surge protector at every outlet when you install a whole-home surge protector. The whole-home protector also protects your appliances, air conditioner, water heater and other integrated equipment. Call 512-442-6782 to have your whole-home surge protector installed.

3. Create a disaster kit

A disaster kit should at minimum 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 unplug electronics

Even with a surge protector it’s a good idea to unplug delicate electronics that can be damaged when power resumes.

5. Plan for water problems

In addition to storing adequate drinking water, prepare for water to be in demand during an extreme emergency. If you can, fill bathtubs with water and have buckets available to pour water into toilet tanks for flushing. Consider buying a portable travel/camping toilet or composting toilet.
