Power Through for a Last Minute Gift!

This past Autumn many of us found ourselves without power due to severe thunderstorms that had been hitting the area. Those of us who grew up in the Midwest have come to expect wild weather that can leave us without power for hours or even days. Strong winds and violent storms during the spring and summer months, blizzards in the winter months, and not to mention the extreme hot and cold temperatures that can cause issues and lead to power outages. Fortunately, you do not have to be at the mercy of Mother Nature any longer. Investing in a whole-house standby generator can keep the lights on when the weather starts to act up.

Reasons to Consider a Standby Generator:

1. When the Power Goes Out, the Generator Kicks On:

Standby generators connect right into your electrical system and are constantly monitoring for power outages. So when the power goes out, your standby generator will kick on. It’s that simple!

2. Prevent a Flooded Basement:

Sump pumps are vital in the battle against the nightmare that is a flooded basement. Unfortunately, most sump pumps require electricity in order to operate and when the power stops flowing, your sump pump stops working. This leaves your basement vulnerable, especially during stormy weather.

3. Save Money By Saving Your Groceries:

A standby generator can keep your major appliances running when severe weather comes raging through. This means that your refrigerator will keep your food cold and fresh. Your AC and/or furnace will keep your family comfortable and your other vital electronics will stay with you until the power comes back on.

4. You Won’t Lose Access to Your Entertainment and Communication Devices:

Power outages tend to mean that you’re left sitting in the dark without a TV, home phone or any other way to communicate with the outside world, or entertain yourself, your kids, family, or loved ones. Sure, you may have your Smartphone, but what happens when the battery dies and you can’t charge it? The correctly sized standby generator can help prevent you from becoming disconnected during extreme weather.lightning-589704_960_720

 5. Stay Calmer During Rocky Weather:

Stormy weather can be scary enough all on its own for small children, pets or even some adults. The situation can become outright terrifying if the lights suddenly go out. Keep the whole family a little calmer during rough weather, by ensuring the lights stay on!

Portable Generators Vs. Standby Generators:

A typical portable generator usually runs on gasoline and has to be manually setup each time the power goes out. A whole house standby generator connects right into your home’s electrical system and will turn itself on automatically if the power goes out. Portable generators are extremely loud and require an exterior fuel source, thus are not safe inside or convenient in an emergency; whereas standby generators are much quieter and activate right away during an outage.

Plus, standby generators come in a variety of sizes, so you can find one that fits your needs. You can choose a smaller unit and only power your most important appliances and circuits, or you can purchase a unit large enough to power your whole home.

Tiger Electrical Services is now providing whole home generators to keep the power on.

A generator provides peace of mind during dark times. If for any reason the electrical supply to your home is interrupted, a generator will power to multiple appliances for hours. While residents of the Metro East expect wild weather, strong winds and violent storms during the spring months, and harsh blizzards in the winter months, these weather conditions can leave many without power. Even this past autumn, many of us found ourselves without power due to severe weather.

Fortunately for you, Tiger offers true 24/7 emergency service and preventative maintenance programs and services, such as generator installations, to ensure you will no longer have to be at the mercy of Mother Nature. Investing in a standby generator can keep the lights on when the weather starts to act up.

Happy International Tiger Day

International Tiger Day

July 29th is International Tiger Day, which was created to bring worldwide attention to the plight of the world’s wild tigers. The goal of International Tiger Day is to bring awareness and build support for tigeInternational Tiger Dayr conservation and habitat protection efforts.

The world’s tigers need you! Tigers are the world’s largest living cat species and as of today, tigers can only be found in South/Southeast Asia, China, and the Far East in Russia. This is a much smaller habitat than tigers are used too. Historically, tigers have spread throughout Turkey, South/Southeast Asia and throughout the eastern shores of Asia.

At the beginning of 1900’s, there were an estimated 100,000 tigers living in the wild. In 2013 there were around 3,274 living in the wild, versus the 3,000 estimated to be living in the wild today. In fact, there are currently more tigers living in captivity than there are in the wild.

Sadly, we’ve seen the extinction of three different tiger species in the past 1International Tiger Day00 years. The Bali Tiger went extinct in 1937 and the Caspian and Javan Tigers have both been extinct since the 70’s. The remaining tiger species will soon join them in extinction if action is not taken now.

So, how can you help? There are a few ways you can help the world’s tigers. The simplest way is to
help spread International Tiger Day awareness online. Use your social media accounts to:
