Spring Showers and the Importance of Backup Power

April 14th, 2020

We’ve all heard the catchy saying April showers bring May flowers, but with the Spring season also comes unpredictable weather and severe storms.

While the weather in Arkansas is almost always unpredictable, the transition between seasons is often extremely uncertain. Spring brings about particularly nasty mood swings in the weather, but even with the unpredictability of the weather, you can still count on having power, even during a blackout.

 

Severe thunderstorms and heavy rainfall can be more than just obnoxious. Often, storms cause power outages and blackouts. Spring is the perfect time to own a home generator. According to this report, 160,074 people are affected by power outages in Arkansas, and power outages in Arkansas typically last almost 23 hours.

 

The longer a power outage lasts, the more of an inconvenience it becomes for you and your family. Food usually only lasts in your refrigerator for up to four hours when there’s no power. After only four hours without power, you may find yourself throwing out spoiled food. So many of us don’t think about preparing for a power outage until it’s too late. Having a backup generator allows you to have peace of mind, knowing your home will have power no matter what the weather brings.

 

The rain that spring brings with it can cause a flood of problems, but with a home standby generator, you can take back your power and protect your home. A backup generator will allow you to keep the lights on, maintain access to emergency broadcasts and news updates, maintain access to your security system, prevent food from going bad, and ensure your family’s safety.

 

Buying a generator for your home is a big decision, which is why we’re here to help. Call today at 501-315-7213 and let us help you figure out the right generator for your budget and use!
