What causes power outages?
Simply put there are a variety of reasons the power can go out in your home. The summer heat is a common culprit of power outages: The summer months are actually when the power grid is under the most strain from energy intensive appliances like air conditioning units. Transmission lines that deliver power all across the county operate in a limited capacity when temperatures are high. With these considerations in mind, power outages can occur as a result of downed power lines, a blown transformer or even an electrical cabinet failure.
Summer aside, people frequently associate power outages with storms that in some instances can cause outages that last for days (even weeks). This comes as a result of lightning, flooding and intense wind. Whatever the cause, you can be sure your home and loved ones are protected with the installation of a whole home generator.
