Lets talk about generators
With the most recent weather events and more brewing in the Atlantic disaster preparedness is a topic on everyone's minds. Although hurricanes do not normally effect Connecticut they still have a potential as we learned with Hurricane Sandy. A few years ago we also had a major October snowstorm that knocked power out for over 2 weeks in some instances. The higher demand for whole house stand alone generators as well as lower production costs have made it more affordable for many people to be able to purchase and have it professionally installed.
Generators are important because they safeguard family members. Certain populations of people are more apt to benefit from a generator. Families with young children, and the elderly who are more sensitive to both heat and cold should consider the benefits of a whole house generator as well those who rely on oxygen, CPAP and other medical machinery at home.
With the use of an automatic transfer switch your generator will start on its own normally within 90 seconds of the power going out. The unique benefit to generators is you can purchase one based on your needs. If you are only concerned with your sub pump running and a few lights and maybe a fridge in the house working you may benefit from a smaller generator than someone who would like to be able to utilize every light, appliance, electric heat, air conditioner, hot water heater, and television in their home. It is important to meet with a qualified licensed electrician to be able to assist with assessing and mapping out your needs when it comes to planning the purchase a whole house generator.
Some of the key benefits to owning a stand by generator is that they provide uninterrupted power for days. They normally run on one of three types of fuel, Propane, Diesel or natural gas. These get delivered by contract with a private company to your home and held in tanks that the generator draws from. **continued in commments**
#tbt to my first television commercial gig it was for #beefobradys . I"ll never forget it I knew once I saw the storyboard that I was pretty much gonna get it cause the drawing looked just like me goatee slicked vack hair and all haha..You can pretty much figure out why you got a roll but you never find out why you didn't sometimes your just exactly what they are looking for. Fun fact after I got the gig I was told I was the only one who brought in a prop fork to the audition so that pretty much sealed the deal. #seeyouatbeefs#talentpoolagency#beprepaired#commercial#actorslife
Well the forecast is currently showing #huricaneirma has shifted a little more west, which is great news for all of my family except my husband and obviously the West Coast where they will get the brunt of it. However it can still change and even with it going west, it's a massive storm so we're all gonna get impacted in some way so we'll see what happens the next couple days. Until then, Florida peeps: Stay calm and be prepared -#wedohurricanes 💛 .
HURRICANE TID BIT 👌
Some of you might do this already, but for those who don't- here is a little hurricane hack.
Get empty tupperwares and fill them with water then freeze. These will become your "ice cubes or ice packs" for when you fill up your coolers etc. Once it melts it can be drinking water as well 😉
