The year 2020 is definitely one that will go down in the annals of history. Pandemics, social distancing, job layoffs, riots, wildfires, back-to-back hurricanes, and a few earthquakes tossed in for good measure have all been hallmarks of our year thus far.
It’s quite anxiety-producing for those who just want to survive the year with their families and homes still intact. The possibility that there is no clear end in sight to the present troubles is particularly unnerving to many Virginians. For some, that means focusing on those things that they can control, like generator installation for their homes.
Stay Powered Up Through Every Disaster
No matter what 2020 has in store for you — murder hornets, anyone? — the one thing that you can still control is your response to what gets tossed your way. The best way to prevent total disaster is to pre-plan your response to it. Scheduling a generator installation now before you actually need an alternative power source for your home is a good way to check one more thing off of your disaster preparedness checklist.
Learn from Past Mistakes
Have you ever had a fully stocked refrigerator and freezer lose power during a storm? The clock starts ticking immediately on the viability of your groceries. If it stays out for long enough, you can lose nearly everything in your refrigerator and freezer. After all, if the power’s out, you can’t cook very well, either, so a lot of food will, unfortunately, go to waste. That can quickly get very expensive!
You don’t have to start buying only enough groceries to feed your family for a few days. But 2020 is the perfect time to rethink your response to all sorts of crises that can cause disruptions in the power to your home.
Schedule a Generator Installation Now
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many Virginia residents to resist fleeing an imminent disaster like a hurricane bearing down on the East Coast for a shelter crowded with strangers. Instead, sheltering in place with their loved ones has definitely become more appealing to lots of Virginia families.
With an emergency generator installed and ready to click on and power up your home in the event of a storm or civil unrest, you can continue to protect your family from some of life’s harsher elements.
And sometimes, that’s the best that you can do.
