Start the Generator Buying Process Before the Storms Hit
Thinking of buying a generator? If you live in Florida and know how rough the weather can be, then this purchase should be at the top of your mind.
And by top – we mean top! The generator process isn’t as simple as dropping it off at your home and installing it.
Generator Process and Why You Should Buy Now
If you signed up with Reliable Power Services today to have a generator installed, you’d be waiting 4-6 weeks for the job to be completed.
Why? Well, because from the day of sign up to the day of install, a lot goes into the process. Reliable Power technicians need to go through the permitting and approval process prior to starting any work.
And, there’s a very good reason to start the buying process now: Storm season. No other state in the country has more lightening activity than Florida. And you know what lightening brings – power outages!
With all the rain, wind, and potential hurricanes, it’s possible for power lines to fall and for you and your family to be stuck in the dark. While hurricane season officially begins in June, the storms will be picking up soon and you don’t want to risk your safety!
The Florida Division of Emergency Management provides a good list of a disaster supply check list just in case. At Reliable Power Services, we highly suggest making a generator installation appointment your first step to avoid the aftermath of a damaging storm. However, you and your family need to be prepared for everything!
A few of the check points are as follows:
- Water: At least 1 gallon daily per person for up to 7 days.
- Food: Enough for 3-7 days, non-perishables, and food specifically for infants or elderly.
- Clothing: Seasonal, rain gear, and sturdy shoes.
- Radio: Battery operated.
- Cash: Banks and ATMs may not be available.
- Important documents: Insurance, medical records, social security card, etc. Keep them in waterproof containers.
Check out the Florida Division of Emergency Management website for more information on keeping safe this storm season. And call Reliable Power Services today to get started on your generator install. You definitely don’t want to wait until the rain comes!
