BALTIMORE, Oct. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- When a storm is on the horizon, it may be too late for preventive measures. Winstar Home Services, a leading provider of residential plumbing, electrical, heating and air conditioning services in the greater Baltimore area, can help provide peace of mind so that if a storm comes, you're ready.
"In the past few days, millions of people across several Southern states and Caribbean islands have been without power because of Hurricane Matthew," says Talbot Watkins, president of Winstar Home Services. "People rely on electricity for survival, and it's important to ask yourself in advance if you're prepared."
More than 3,000 power outages occur in the United States each year, affecting at least 41 million people. The average power outage lasts about 214 minutes, which is more than three hours without running water, air conditioning, and refrigeration.
Watkins says every household should have at least one small backup generator, which will keep your security system, HVAC, refrigerator and stove up and running with only a brief interruption.
"Winstar offers a variety of generator makes and models from small portable backup generators to larger automatic backup generators," Watkins says. "All of them are user-friendly and come with warranties."
Not only are backup generators important for emergencies and power outages, but they also protect your property from damaging power surges.
