As we reach the most dangerous months for tornado season, it’s time to think about how to prepare for power outages. But, with a whole-home generator, there is no need to have the flashlights on standby!

Tornado Season

April kicks off the most active and dangerous three-month period of the year for tornadoes in the United States. Intense tornadoes are more likely to occur during the spring. Many of the worst tornado outbreaks strike in April or May. According to weather.com, “The U.S. averaged 1,239 tornadoes annually during the 20 years from 1998 to 2017, 55 percent of which were sandwiched between April and June.”

87% of power outages are a result of severe weather. Power outages cost American households $150 billion annually with weather-related outages accounting for $25-$70 billion per year.

How You Can Prepare

To prepare for tornado season, we recommend installing a whole-home generator.

Power outages trigger generators to switch on until local power is restored. Having a generator as a backup will keep you and your family comfortable in the wake of a storm. Also, it will keep the food in your refrigerator fresh! You will also be able to power everything in your home. For example, heating, HVAC, lights, appliances, and sensitive electronics.

A whole home generator is quiet and will turn on/off when needed. Our team of electricians will take care of everything from the installation to the maintenance. We will ensure that your home generator works properly year-round.
