Hurricane Season 2013: Is Your Home Ready?


It’s that time of year again to start talking about the upcoming Atlantic hurricane season. 2013 continues the streak of years since 2011 that have exhibited somewhat mixed pre-season signals, with lesser degrees of confidence in the potency of the hurricane season. The evolution of some early warning signs during the last several weeks have pushed 2013 farther into the realm of certainty, at least with regards to its overall level of activity. Specifically, 2013 is likely to be an above-average hurricane season.

Be in control and know you will have power even if the power goes out by having a home standby generator at your command. Why should you invest in a generator for your backup power source? Losing electricity affects your style of living. It seems to go out at the least inconvenient moment. Lose power and you have no refrigeration for your food. If your house is all electric, you will not have any hot water for showers or cooking. If you do not have any electricity, you lose your comforts like central air conditioning. For some, it is a life-saving power backup system.

Hurricane Katrina knocked out electricity to some areas for six months. Entire trees fell on electrical lines bringing them to the ground. Utility poles leaned dangerously low, stretching power lines, causing electricity failure to thousands. There are many other reasons why you may lose power not only due to a hurricane. Do you really want to live without lights or air conditioning or conveniences? Now is the time to invest in a whole house generator.
