Of course losing power is an inconvenience for you. However, there are some more serious problems that can come from losing power. Losing power to major appliances and major systems in your home can cause serious problems to their future functioning.
Water & Plumbing
Losing power can cause havoc to your homes plumbing. If you are losing power due to a storm, you will not have a sump pump to remove the water from the lower levels of your home. This can lead to a lot of water damage to your home, furniture and other valuable items. Without power to warm your home, you will risk frozen pipes and subsequent plumbing.
When your lose electricity, you will find that you have difficulty with your toilet. While some systems are gravity-based, frozen pipes will contribute to more difficulties. Without electricity, there will be no power to remove waste from your home. Some people will use the “bucket of water trick” to flush a toilet when they are without power. However, without power to pump water from the chamber under your home where it gathers, it will be unable to move towards the sewer system. This will inevitably lead to the chamber overflowing into your basement.
