Power Outages

Power outages can lead to more than just your lights going out. Forcing sensitive electronics to shut down unexpectedly can result in data loss or damage to electrical systems. When power returns, a surge can damage TVs, appliances, and even heating and AC systems. Power outages can be impossible to predict, so be sure to prepare your home with the following devices:

·    Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS)

·    These devices can protect against all power disturbances. They work by providing battery backup to critical electronics to protect them from sudden shutoffs.

·    Energy Storage

·    Energy storage systems consist of batteries that provide backup during service interruptions. They can be used to power critical systems in your home.

·    Smart Meters

·    Smart meters allow for greater communication between your home’s electrical needs and your energy provider. They can help you reduce energy costs and provide utilities with more information on how much electricity is being used in their service areas.

·    Generators & Transfer Switches

·    Generators provide energy during power interruptions. Both portable and standby generators should be used with a transfer switch to prevent unintentional energization of surrounding areas which could cause harm to utility workers or neighbors.

·    Surge Protective Devices (SPDs)

·    SPDs protect against voltage spikes that can cause damage to your electronics when full power is restored.Protect Your Home When the Power Goes Out
