No, they’re not the names of characters from a new Netflix show. They’re names on this year’s Atlantic hurricane list – and there’s a good chance that you will be hearing more from at least one of them this Atlantic Hurricane Season.
While Connecticut does not typically find itself in the crosshairs of the worst of these powerful storms, their remnants can still have a big impact on your life and property – including inconvenient and potentially dangerous power outages.
One of the best ways to cope with power outages is to install a whole house propane backup generator* (sometimes called a standby generator), which restores power mere seconds after the grid goes down. A standby generator will not only keep your lights on, it will keep your refrigerator, cooling system, sump pump, home security system, and more up and running.
In a time where severe weather is becoming more common, a backup generator is fast transforming from a luxury to a necessity for your CT home.
Whether or not you’re ready to install a backup generator, though, planning for severe weather is the key to minimizing its potentially disastrous effects. Here are some pointers for severe weather preparedness for you home:
