Tips for a Power Outage

Ponte Vedra ElectricianIf you are like many of the people throughout the Jacksonville area, you lost electricity during the most recent hurricane. Here are some tips to help you prepare for the next outage:

  • Keep Your Refrigerator and Freezer Closed – Make sure you keep your refrigerator and freezer closed as long as possible. The food in your freezer will last for as long 48 hours when it is packed, while the food in your refrigerator will be safe for consumption for up to 4 hours.
  • Get a Generator Early – The worst time to purchase a power generator is just a few days before a massive storm is about to hit. Before hurricane season starts, you should invest in a generator. Our business is proud to offer selections that can be integrated into your home, which help to keep you comfortable at all times.
  • Turn Off Important Electronics – When the electricity goes off, its eventual return can cause a power surge that will kill your TV, computer, and even larger items like your air conditioner. You should turn on at least one light that you will need to see to allow you to check that the power is restored correctly.
