Prepare Your Generator Before Hurricane Season

  • < Back to Blog

    Hurricane season is around the corner, and unfortunately, we never know exactly when they’re going to strike. Storms don’t wait until you’re ready – and most people are never fully prepared for a natural disaster.

    Texas has seen its share of hurricanes over the years, and most locals are pretty laid-back about them. Sometimes, though, there’s a fine line between unconcerned and underprepared – and where most Texans fail is in taking the necessary precautions for their homes before hurricane season starts. So, when you’re making your hurricane readiness to-do list, don’t forget to make sure your generator is ready to go ahead of time.

    Be Proactive  

    As the late summer months arrive, we’re reminded that hurricane season – and the threat of destructive storms – is upon us. The most prepared home and business owners take the usual precautions – stocking up on canned goods, batteries, and water bottles. Some even make sure their generators are in working order. However, most people don’t start thinking about their hurricane prep to-do list until a storm is on the way. Waiting until the last minute is what makes lines so long at stores and generator companies.

    So, this year – be proactive about taking care of your generator before the hurricane season hits. You won’t have to wait in long lines, and you’ll have peace of mind knowing your home is ready for any inconvenient power outages! A generator maintenance plan like Malek’s Total Protection Plan, is an easy, cost-effective way to ensure you’re covered year-round with priority service.

    Unexpected Outages

    Of course, power outages aren’t restricted to hurricane season – they can happen at any time for many different reasons. That’s why keeping your home safe and functioning normally is a year-round challenge. Instead of finding yourself without AC, lights, and appliances – especially during the hottest and most humid summer months – be proactive and have your generator serviced regularly.

    Save Time and Money

    By signing up for a maintenance plan before hurricane season arrives, you get priority service and discounts before you’re desperate for them. That means you can be laid back and relaxed when summer storms strike. A maintenance plan also allows you to pay more affordable monthly rates instead of paying hundreds upfront for a last-minute maintenance visit.
