Whether there is a blackout or you are having a problem with your home wiring, it is vital that you prepare for power loss. Here are some tips to help you prep:

Keep Lighting and Batteries on Hand – Do you know where the flashlights are located in your home? How about all of your batteries? Instead of scrambling around in the dark, you should have a handful of emergency flashlights and spare batteries on hand in one place so you can find them at a moment’s notice. You should avoid candles, as they are a fire hazard.

Invest in Non-Perishable Food and Water – Hurricane season is in full swing, which means you should be ready for the electricity to go out at any moment. Keeping cans of non-perishable food and at least one gallon of water on hand is a smart move.

Invest in a Generator – Having a generator on hand before the storm season starts is an excellent investment. You can select a small generator that will power a handful of small electronics or you can select full house generator and have the team at Mister Sparky install it!

Sitting in a house with not power during the summer is a deal breaker. You can count on a Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra electrician at Mister Sparky to come to your home and provide you with a wide array of general electrical services, including wiring, generator installations, and surge protection assistance.
