Thousands of homes lose electrical power every year due to squirrels, birds, and other small animals. Thousands more risk unwanted visitors to their homes due to roof access from existing service lines. While losing power on a warm day is mostly annoying for losing air conditioning, it is downright dangerous in cold weather from losing heat. Utility companies can face outages due to extreme weather in many forms and are generally ready for such phenomena, but a bird or small animal follows no predictable pattern for which the companies can prepare. When you frequently lose power or you have unwanted residents in your attic, though resolution and power restoration is imperative, it is smarter to prevent these problems from happening in the first place.
