Palm Beach County ranks in the country’s top five most hurricane-vulnerable areas! Natural disasters, such as hurricanes & tropical storms, are the leading cause of power outages in FL… Going without power during times of inclement weather is inconvenient, uncomfortable & can even lead to health & safety risks, when there’s no electricity, my associate and I can’t run the A/C or the dehumidifier, then high temperatures & moisture create the ideal breeding ground for dust mites, cockroaches, bacteria, viruses, mold & mildew, and the humidity can cause hardwood floors, doors, moldings, window & door frames & antiques to warp.
The conditions aggravate symptoms of flu symptoms & asthma & can be blamed for difficulty sleeping, headaches, lethargy, sneezing, coughing, sore throat & itchy throat, and a power outage of any significant duration results in food spoilage due to the lack of refrigeration.
After struggling through a power failure that lasted for many afternoons, I invested into a permanently installed backup generator. The project was expensive but worthwhile, then i hired an electrician in Palm Beach to wire the generator into the home’s electrical system. If there is an outage, the generator immediately senses the interruption in power, automatically starts up & takes over the supply of power. The unit is powerful enough to handle all of our essential systems, including the A/C, water pump, refrigerator, washer & dryer. Because it runs on natural gas, it never runs out of fuel. I don’t need to be at home to start it up or worry about the consequences of a lengthy power outage. I like having the peace of mind.
