A brief power outage could affect many appliances when the power kicks back on – or if a circuit breaker is blown and the fridge doesn’t come back on, or the breaker trips to the pool equipment or AC/heating system.

** We recommend you contact your insurance company to see how long your home can remain unoccupied before it becomes an issue to your insurance provider.
