Asheville’s temperate climate, stunning mountain terrain, and pristine environment – complete with four distinctly beautiful seasons – probably explain a lot about why you live here. But if you do live here, you know that — like many locations influenced by the Appalachian mountains, Atlantic coast, and the Gulf of Mexico – Asheville’s day-to-day weather provides plenty of “excitement” over the year.
When it comes to weather, you see it all in Asheville — snow and ice, thunderstorms, tornados, and even tropical depressions. Every year and in every season, severe weather, along with utility equipment failure, and run-of-the-mill accidents, knocks out power for you and thousands of others in and around Asheville, often for days at a time. Storms down trees and power lines, cause icing, flooding, and landslides, and make roads dangerous or impassable for you, as well as for power utility repair crews trying to restore your power.
Spring and summer in Asheville bring thunderstorms, tornado warnings, and even remnants of hurricanes from the Gulf Coast or Atlantic. When Tropical Storm Fred hit Western North Carolina in August 2021, rain, high winds and deadly floods left 7,000 in the Asheville area without power for days.
Winters in Asheville are cold, with average nighttime lows around 30 degrees, daytime highs around 45, and average annual snowfall of about 10 inches. But those are averages. On December 8, 2018, over a foot of snow fell in Asheville with winds of 35 mph, 20,000 lost power — with 7,200 in the dark for several days.
Even if you’ve had enough advance notice to stock up before a big storm, without power it doesn’t take too long for food, supplies, phone chargers, and good humor to run low. At that point, you have three options. You can wait for power to come back on— no cooking, no refrigeration, no heating or air conditioning, no TV, no phone chargers, and possibly no water. You can try to hunt down a hotel room with what’s left of your dwindling phone charge and get the whole family there. Or, you can find a kind-hearted friend or family member with power to take you in.
But, before the next season brings new weather and power challenges, you can explore an altogether better option — uninterrupted power with an automatic, whole house backup generator from Canter Power Systems.
Think about how your life would change if you never had to worry about being without power in Asheville - ever again. If the power goes out, for any reason, you can relax in the comfort and protection of your own home while your life goes on normally, even if power is out for an extended period.
Whether it’s a major storm or a sunny day blip, your whole home backup generator turns itself on automatically, within seconds after the power goes off — and stays on until utility service is restored. Even if the power goes out while you’re still inching your way home along I-240 or detouring around a landslide on I-40, you don’t have to worry. Your generator will start up and run everything you count on in your house, just as if you were there.
Imagine this scenario next time the power goes off in Asheville.
Whether you live in Downtown Asheville, over near the Biltmore Estate, or further out in Buncombe County your lights and power are ON, even if all your neighbors’ homes are dark. You can heat and cool your home, cook, wash dishes and clothes, bathe, charge your phones and computers and keep your refrigerated and frozen food safe. And, if you count on power to keep medicines cool or operate assistive equipment,
Your whole family can watch television, listen to music, read books, play games, and use computers and phones to stay in contact with your larger world. Instead of rationing candles and flashlights, you can stay up after dark doing what you want and need to do. With a Generac whole house backup generator, you can even select to run only certain appliances during a power outage if you prefer. The choice is 100% up to you.
When dangerous storms or other power outages happen in Asheville, your life can quickly get complicated and stressful. School, work, and transportation schedules are disrupted. You worry when you lose contact with family and friends — those who count on you, or those that you count on — even if it’s just temporary.
It’s at times like this that you really appreciate being in your own home, sleeping in your own bed, eating the food you like, and relaxing with your favorite TV programs, books, and family, not to mention having phone and internet service to keep up with school or work and to stay in contact with family and friends. Keeping up with closings and conditions in and around Asheville makes everyone in your household feel more at ease and connected.
