In the face of a storm, you don’t want to be caught off guard. Preparing your home can be something your family works on proactively and something you can do over time. Amongst the common storm preparation tactics like storing enough dry foods and canned goods to last throughout a power outage, having blankets, batteries, and flashlights available, and preparing a first aid kit in case of emergency… there is one home comfort tip we recommend covering as well.
Not every storm results in a power outage, but they can result in drastic weather elements and freezing (or below freezing) temperatures outside. In these events, blankets are helpful, but a well-maintained furnace is the golden ticket.
Often times, our Bob’s Heating technicians who are called to emergency no-heat calls during the thick of storms are visiting homes in which the furnace hasn’t had a maintenance service done in years. To ensure proper function of your system and to reduce stress on the unit in times of desperate need, we recommend scheduling an annual furnace maintenance to prevent any issues from arising when you need your furnace most.
Of course, a professionally-installed furnace is only useful when there’s power to keep it running. When there is an unexpected power outage or blackout during a storm or one that lingers even after it’s over, you’ll want your home to stay running as it always does throughout the emergency situation’s entire duration.
Our sales team can recommend the right generator for your property. Are you looking for immediate and long-lasting power or wanting to experience backup energy while also accommodating your wallet? Between standby and portable generators, Bob’s Heating has the right choice available for you, and can help determine which generator model is the right type for your home.
A backup generator gives you peace of mind when an expected (or unexpected) storm is on the way. You can experience comfort and warmth, fresh foods from your refrigerator, and a smart home that runs as it should throughout any emergency with a professional generator installation that prioritizes certain power loads in your home. This is the dependability that backup generators from Bob’s Heating can provide .
