Medical Consequences of a Power Outage

Have you considered what effect an extended power outage might have on your health or the health of your family?  With more people living in multi-generational homes and more seniors staying in their own homes longer, there’s a lot to think about when it comes to medical consequences of a power outage.

The most obvious medical concerns surround complex equipment for chronic, disabling conditions.  Home dialysis equipment, ventilators, or suction machines, for example, are life-saving for those patients and must run continuously.  Oxygen concentrators are also critical if you don’t have a portable alternative.

But there are some other things to consider.

Does someone in your home use a stairlift due to mobility issues?  Without electricity, their safety could be at risk or they could be confined to a small area of the home.  The same is true for people who require power wheelchairs or scooters.  Many people now use CPAP machines for sleep apnea, and going without that treatment could be life-threatening for some.

Even if no one in your household uses any medical equipment, what about your medications?  Many common medications require cold storage.  Not only insulin, but other diabetes drugs, as well as several chemotherapy drugs, some antibiotics, and even some eye and ear drops must be refrigerated to maintain their integrity and potency.  In the event of an extended power outage, you could lose these essential medications, putting your family’s health at risk.

The good news is that a home standby generator can ensure that all your critical medical equipment keeps working and all your medications can be stored correctly.  Precision Mechanical Services has over 20 years’ combined experience and can help you find the right generator for your needs and your budget.  For more information or to request a quote, contact us today!        

What Size Generator Do I Need?

When investing in a generator, you’ll need to decide what size generator best fits your needs.  Generator sizes are measured in wattage, or how much power they produce.  To choose the best wattage for your home, ask yourself a few questions.  Do you experience power outages that last several days?  Do they occur during seasons when you need your air conditioner or heater?  Do you rely on any medical equipment?  When you know how much power you need, you can choose the right size generator.

2000 Watts

A generator that puts out 2000 watts can power a refrigerator and a few lights, plus charge a phone or two.  If you just want to avoid food spoilage for a few days, this may be a good choice.  However, in the heat of summer or the dead of winter, this size generator may leave you very uncomfortable.

3500 Watts

A 3500-watt generator will run not only your refrigerator and freezer but a sump pump or well pump as well as some lighting.  While this size generator won’t handle heating or air conditioning, it’s a good choice if you live in an area where you might need to run a sump pump to avoid water damage.

7500 watts

At 7500 watts, a generator should power your refrigerator, lights, and even a small central air conditioner or furnace.  This size generator will keep you comfortable regardless of the season.  Many generators of this size can be connected directly to your breaker panel for easy access.

10,000 – 15,000 Watts

Home standby generators in this range can handle all of your home’s essentials plus a water heater, larger air conditioning unit, and well pumps.  At the higher end of the range, you’ll be able to use some kitchen appliances, like microwaves and coffee makers, as well.

16,000 – 22,000 Watts

Some of the largest home standby generators, this range can keep almost your entire home running during an outage.  Using generators of this size, you may not even notice the power’s gone out at all, but you will need to be aware of your energy usage.
