We’ll start this off by saying the best way to stay cool in a summer power outage is to prepare for a summer power outage now. We get it—you never know when a blackout might occur. True, widespread blackouts tend to be more common in the winter time, what with the storms we experience. However, take it from our Peabody, MA electricians… that doesn’t mean homeowners are immune to them in the summer.
And when the power does go out in the summer, all of the sudden you’re stuck without an air conditioner, without refrigeration, and generally without a way to keep cool. At least, this is the case if you don’t prepare.
