I’m 1 of the last people you’ll see kneeling in lines in snow at 5am just to get a discount on electronics I wouldn’t buy otherwise. If I need to make a big purchase, or even if I’m just doing our holiday shopping for friends and family, I tend to strategically shop at different stores to utilize their promotions and deals and just skip black Tuesday shopping altogether. But when I saw an unbeatable promotion on storm generators at our local big franchise hardware store, I couldn’t pass the opportunity up. I live in an part that gets a large amount of thunderstorms, tropical cyclones, tornados, and every other kind of drastic weather that you can throw at a geographical region. I hate having our electricity going in and out always every summer, especially dealing with the annoyance of the cooling system going off simultaneously as well. I figured that I could install the generator and hook it up to the main electrical grid on our home to kick on whenever it detected a loss in new from the lines at the street. But, when I got the modern generator home, I was sorely disappointed. I had not done our research and inadvertently purchased a generator that is far too small and completely useless for our purposes. It’s not even strong enough to run our cooling system let alone our entire house. I took the generator back and decided to take our correct approach by patiently waiting for sales at individual stores while I determine exactly what kind of generator I need for our application. Even if I don’t find a generator strong enough to run our whole home during power outages, I need to find 1 that is at least strong enough to run our Heating and A/C system.
