WOBURN, Mass., May 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Addarios Plumbing Heating Cooling & Electrical, a leading HVAC and plumbing company serving Middlesex County since 1998, recommends homeowners take preventative steps to prepare for electrical outages associated with summer storms.
"Severe storms can take homeowners off guard during the summer," said Steven Addario Jr., president and owner of Addario's. "We want our local community to always feel comfortable and safe year-round. Helping homeowners prepare for electrical outages, both in the short-term and long-term, will allow our clients and friends to have peace of mind for whatever the weather throws our way."
Tips from Addario's that homeowners can use to prepare for an electrical outage include:
Keep freezers and refrigerators closed during an outage – To prevent loss of temperature and avoid spoilage, keeping freezer and refrigerator doors closed will allow cold air to stay in place. For appliances that need extra insulation, wrap blankets around the door frame.
Turn off air conditioners – To ensure air conditioners don't experience a possibly damaging surge of electricity when power is restored, wait to turn the AC on for a few minutes.
Schedule an electrical inspection – Before a storm hits, call a trusted electrical professional to check all electrical outlets, switches, lights, thermostats and transformers to ensure full functionality. This will help to ensure no unexpected shortages before, during and after a power outage.
Wear light materials such as linen – Power outages are unpredictable. Wearing breathable clothing during an outage will help keep you comfortable until the electricity cuts back on.
Trusted professional service technicians such as the experts at Addario's have helped numerous Middlesex County residents feel comfortable and safe all year-round with routine inspections and proper electrical wiring and surge protection installations.
