Prepare for Hurricane Season with a Whole Home Generator

July 5, 2019

Raleigh, North Carolina residents are no strangers to hurricanes and tropical storms. In order to prepare, you should consider investing in a whole home generator. Here are two tips to help you get ready for hurricane season.

Have a Backup Power Source

Power outages are common when a hurricane strikes, and they can sometimes last for days. A whole home generator installation avoids the pitfalls of dead batteries and fire hazards from candles as well as ensures a comfortable environment. But a back-up Generac generator is more than a convenience. Here’s how a whole home generator installation keeps you prepared for hurricane season:

  • Ensures a fresh supply of water for drinking and sanitary needs
  • Safeguards food in refrigerators and freezers
  • Protects loved ones who rely on medical devices
  • Keeps security features operating
  • Keeps cell phones, laptops, TVs and radios charged and communication lines intact

Protect Your HVAC System

If you’re like most homeowners, you’ve taken steps to protect your computers, appliances, and other electronics from the effects of power outages during hurricane season. However, have you thought about protecting your HVAC system?

When your AC unit starts running again after an outage, the sudden restoration of power creates a power surge that can be very destructive to your HVAC equipment. Electrical or AC repairs frequently result. A back-up generator — which runs on liquid propane or natural gas — protects your AC unit from surges. It automatically switches on when the power goes out, seamlessly delivering a steady stream of power directly to your home’s electrical panel. When the electric company restores power, the generator automatically switches off.
