Prepare for Tornado Season With a Whole Home Generator
If you’ve walked outside, it’s no secret that the weather is changing. It’s hot, it’s rainy, and the storms haven’t stopped in weeks. The most dangerous season is here in Arkansas – and that is tornado season. With the increase in tornados comes a season of rolling power outages. You can keep candles ready to light up your home, or you can get a whole home generator and leave your fears behind.
When is Tornado Season?
Tornado season starts off in April and goes through to the end of June in the United States. According to weather.com, “The US averages 1,239 tornadoes a year from 1998 to 2017. 55% of those tornadoes were between the months of April and June.” How many power outages do you think are caused by extreme weather? 87%. And when power outages happen, that means money is being lost among homes and businesses. $150 billion dollars is the annual cost in American households due to power outages. $70 billion dollars of that is due to weather-related outages.
What Can You Do To Prepare For Tornado Season?
The best way to prepare for tornado season is to install a whole-home generator so your family doesn’t have to worry about power outages. Whenever a power outage occurs, your whole-home generator will switch on the second it senses the power going out. Once the power is restored, the whole-home generator will switch off on its own. With a whole-home generator, your family can stay cool and comfortable, despite power outages. You won’t waste hundreds of dollars from your refrigerator shutting down and spoiling your food.
Benefits of a Whole-Home Generator
1. Keep Your Family Comfortable
Like we said above, whole-home generators can ensure the comfort and safety of your family. Using candles to see throughout your house is a fire hazard and just inconvenient. You can keep living your life as normal whenever you have a hwole-home generator to rely on.
2. Keep Your Family Safe
Your family will not only be comfortable whenever you have a whole-home generator to rely on, but they will also be safe.

Whole-home generators also ensure that your security systems work and keep you protected.
3. Keep It Simple
Whole-home generators are efficient and they turn on and shut off automatically. These generators can run for hours on end without any sort of interruptions. We cans et your home generator up to supply electricity to whatever appliances, HVAC systems etc that you want. Or we can be sure it supplies your entire home. They will automatically power on at the first sign of a power outage and turn off as soon as power is restored as well. It doesn’t get much easier than that.
4. Save Your Family Money
