How to keep your home comfy cool during summer power outages
There are numerous reasons why power outages occur. During summers especially, outages in West Texas can happen any time because of the season’s unpredictable weather conditions. Thunderstorms combined with the intense Texan heat can actually be difficult for electricity distributors as lightning, high winds, and other circumstances can sometimes topple power lines and knock out power.
In recent news, residents from Andrews and Odessa had to endure the summer heat without their A/Cs as an equipment failure caused a widespread power disruption in the area:
ANDREWS – Thousands of West Texans found themselves without power on Sunday in Andrews.
ONCOR reported that about 6,000 residents were without electricity in north Andrews off of Highway 385.
An equipment failure is said to have caused the outage and power was expected to be restored by 10 p.m. Sunday night.
One way of coping with this problem on a more permanent basis is to install energy saving windows in Odessa TX as they can actually enhance your home insulation, which can therefore be effective devices in keeping your home comfortably cool despite the lack of air conditioning.
