Why It Makes Sense to Get a Generator Now
If you have a power outage during the pandemic, a generator can keep you safe at home
Having a backup generator is a good idea in general. That’s the case even more so now, given the risk of exposure to the coronavirus if you were forced to leave your home because of a power outage from a severe weather event. In the past few months, we’ve already seen the tragic impact of flooding and windstorms in the Midwest. Tornadoes throughout the South have killed dozens and left more than 1 million people without power. And we haven’t yet entered hurricane season.
A portable generator can keep four to six appliances and electronic devices running—refrigerator, window air conditioner, TV, phones. This makes staying home during a power outage more tolerable and safe.
