Are You Prepared For The Unexpected? Power Outages?

Home Inspector with WWW.ExecutiveRestoration.Com

Have you ever been without power?  I am sure we all have, at one time or another.  I have learned to always be prepared.  One of the questions, I like to ask my client for inspections is, Do you have power?  Is this new construction?  Have you ever been to a building that did not have power and you needed electricity or power to run tools or instruments?  Better be prepared.  Always be prepared for the unexpected.  There is nothing worse than going to a job and realizing, there is no power for air pumps for Mold Sampling, High-Intensity Lighting, and other things that need electricity.


I have many forms of backup power but this one above is my favorite.  It is called the Jackery.  I can plug it in and get the electricity that is mobile to take with me from a power supply before I leave as well as plug it into my truck to have the electricity that I need on a job.  I also have a backup solar panel that I can use to create electricity.  Both of these items were about $350.00 .

I have other power supplies at my home but this one is my favorite because it is so compact and looks professional and does more than I need. 


I hope you do not go without power but one day, you probably will.  Sometimes, we take our electricity for granted until we have to do without electricity for a day or a week or even weeks sometimes.  I have backup solar at my home as well as this.  I will also soon be buying a Yamaha generator that works off propane and gasoline.  They run about $500.00 for about 2,000 watts and our whisper quiet, I am told. 


Always, be prepared for the unexpected.  Always, have a backup plan.  Think smart.  Be prepared.  The day will come when you will be thankful that you are prepared, for the unexpected.  Do not wait until you need it.  Get prepared now.  If you think the day will not arrive when you need power, I hope you are correct but if you are not correct, what harm would it be to have some kind of backup plan and be prepared for the day.  At least for your cell phone and laptop computer and LED lighting and say music and lamps to read off of with light.


My name is David Snell and growing up in the orient, with my parents who were missionaries, my daddy always taught me to be prepared for the unexpected.
