When the power goes out in your home or neighborhood, maybe even for days at a time, your family can stay safe, warm, and dry thanks to a standby generator, which you can purchase through an Electrician Miami Beach.
If there is a storm outside that takes the entire neighborhood’s power out, residents could be without electricity for days, depending on the severity of the storm. That means their air conditioning won’t work, and residents can’t turn to using fans or ceiling fans to keep cool. Likewise, there will be no central heat and no way to use a portable heater. If temperatures are high enough, this can go far beyond simply being uncomfortable. It can be dangerous for people and pets to swelter in stifling heat.
Everything in the refrigerator and freezer will be spoiled, and could mean hundreds of dollars in food having to be thrown away. If the stove and oven are electric, then no cooking can be done, either. If you can’t keep food that needs refrigeration and you also have no electricity to do any cooking, you’re left with very few options for meals.
The house will get dark when the sun starts to go down in the sky. No one can use the internet or television. If anyone in the house uses an oxygen concentrator and the electricity goes out, that person may not be able to use that vital medical equipment. If you have fish tanks, you’ll have no way to run your water filter or air pump to keep the fish alive. If your basement has a sump pump, that pump requires electricity to enable it to pump water out of the house. Without electricity, if you’ve got rising water in your basement, the sump pump is now useless.
These are all excellent reasons to consider having an Electrician Miami Beach install a generator for the house. It’s much safer than running a portable generator, with no risk of carbon monoxide poisoning or overloading the circuits with extension cords. You don’t have to go out in the rain and keep the generator fueled, and you don’t have to make sure you have fuel on hand. The generator uses propane or natural gas.
