What should I do in case of a power cut?

Experiencing a power cut? No worries! Power outages don’t happen as often as they used too, and it can be due to a number of factors. So, for that reason, the first thing we advise our customers to do during a power cut is to not panic. Instead, play an old fashioned game of cards. On a serious note, however, there are some things that you should definitely not do during a power outage. These are:

  • Don’t open the fridge- it is best to keep your food as cold as possible!!
  • Don’t flush the toilet- Your sewage system uses electricity and flushing could lead to a pipe burst.

For more information Check out our guide on What to do in a Power Cut.
