SEVERE-STORM SEASON IS HERE--AND RECENT STUDIES SHOW THAT THE CLEANUP AND REPAIR FROM A LENGTHY POWER-OUTAGE DUE TO SEVERE WEATHER CAN COST HOMEOWNERS MORE THAN IF THEY'D TAKEN PREVENTIVE STEPS TO PREPARE THEIR HOME BEFORE THE STORM.  ACCORDING TO "BRIGGS AND STRATTON", THE COST OF BEING WITHOUT POWER CAN INCLUDE SPOILED FOOD, BASEMENT WATER-DAMAGE, APPLIANCE-REPAIRS, AND EVEN EXTENDED HOTEL-STAYS.  IN FACT, HOMEOWNERS CAN INCUR COSTS FROM A SINGLE, PROLONGED POWER-OUTAGE THAT ARE EQUAL TO SEVERAL TIMES THE COST OF INVESTING IN A STANDBY-GENERATOR.  A STANDBY-GENERATOR CAN GIVE FAMILIES PEACE-OF-MIND AFTER A HURRICANE OR SEVERE STORM:  NEW TECHNOLOGY IS MAKING BACKUP-POWER MORE AFFORDABLE--AND TODAY'S COMPACT UNITS QUICKLY PAY FOR THEMSELVES.  INSTALLING A HOME STANDBY-GENERATOR ENSURES THAT THESE LOSSES DON'T HAPPEN EVERY TIME A STORM KNOCKS OUT YOUR POWER.  FOR MORE INFORMATION, GO TO "BRIGGS-AND-STRATTON"-DOT-COM.
