If you are not prepared, power failures can be a real pain—and extremely dangerous. At the very least, a blackout can disable heating and air-conditioning systems, freezers, refrigerators, water pumps and lighting. If the power outage lasts for any length of time, your home can become uncomfortable and possibly uninhabitable: Your water pipes may freeze and burst, the food in your freezer may thaw and spoil, or your sump pump may fail, flooding your basement. Any of these events can quickly become expensive. If a blizzard blocks roads and you’re snowed-in during subzero temperatures, grid failure can even be life-threatening. Power outages used to be considered a nuisance at most, but as we depend on power more and more these days a power outage now has severe effects. Hurricane Sandy really caught most New Jersey home owners by surprise and created outages that lasted from 7-14 days. People were forced to leave their homes and stay at hotels or relatives homes who were out of Sandys’ destructive path.
Senior Citizens had an exceptionally hard time as they often rely on medical devices for their health and without power they were truly left “powerless”. For anyone with a newborn baby or young child the power outage not only inconvenienced them but also put their childrens life in danger with out access to hot water and heat. To eliminate the troubles of a long-term power outage, an immediate solution is to invest in a backup generator, powered by a conventional internal combustion engine. Most people really appreciate the benefits of a generator only after they have experienced lengthy power outages without one.
