Summer Power Outages
With summer temperatures inching higher each day, PG&E has announced that it may turn off power to some grids in Northern California in high risk areas in order to mitigate possible fire danger. Here's a few tips to keep you cool and safe in case your home or place of business loses power.
Keep your refrigerator closed. Inside of the refrigerator should stay below 40 degrees Fahrenheit and freezers need to be below zero degrees. Use ice bags or dry ice to keep the inside of the unit cool.
Keep windows and doors closed and block the sun by closing blinds and shades.
Back up your files and install surge protectors. Take the time to back up your files before the hot weather hits and install surge protectors from your local hardware store to protect your electronics if the power surges when it is turned back on.
Using these easy tips will help make any electrical power outage a bit more tolerable.
