How to Power your Home after a Hurricane Strikes: Part Two
Posted by Stephanie Junek on
After a hurricane strikes, you will want to be very careful to avoid potentially life-threatening dangers. Some of those dangers are likely to be around any corner, once you emerge from your shelter. The potential dangers are hiding in flood waters, your basement, your yard, and car. Be cautious and know the warnings and how to avoid making a life-threatening mistake during your clean up and repair efforts.
As we talked about in the post; How to Power your Home after a Tornado Strikes: Part One, you must be very cautious about what is going on in or outside your home after a natural disaster strikes. See part one for some tips on how to avoid potential dangers after a storm strikes your area.
Take all steps to make sure it is safe to run emergency power to your home, as we talked about in part one. Once you have done this, it is safe to prepare temporary power to your home using a portable generator. Generators have outlets installed into them and the most common outlets are the NEMA 5-15R, NEMA L5-30R, the NEMA L14-30R, and the NEMA L14-20R. We also stated if you have one of the two NEMA L14-30 or L14-20 receptacles, you will likely not have the other. Most generator’s do not have both of those outlets installed into them.
In part one, we showed you the AC WORKS™ brand products available to the NEMA 5-15R and the NEMA L5-30R outlets. Today we want to share with you the products we have available to bring solutions to your NEMA L14-30R or NEMA L14-20R outlets.
