As a Florida resident, you know heavy winds and rains knock over trees and power lines all the time— and you admit you could really benefit from a backup generator.
While Southwest Florida is absolutely breathtaking year-round, severe weather can quickly become an issue during hurricane season, causing unwelcome power outages and making generators a necessity for any home.This is why it’s important to choose the right generator—without one, you may be left in the dark.
Whether you use your portable generator at home, the office, or for camping, the last thing you want is for it to fail when you need it the most. Especially in cases of severe weather when it’s important that your generator does its job flawlessly.
Hurricane season is upon us, so you are probably thinking about assembling your hurricane kit, checking batteries in the flashlights, stashing them anywhere you can think of – you know, just in case the area finds itself on a first name basis with a tropical storm and your power goes out.
Just this fall, Hurricane Matthew stormed through the Caribbean and smashed into the eastern seaboard. Although Southwest Florida was lucky enough to almost entirely avoid the storm, cities like St. Augustine lost beaches, roads, and electricity during the storm’s surge.
