Why a Home Generator Is a Good Idea This Winter

home electrical service

If you’ve been thinking about a backup generator for your home, our home electrical service experts can say that the idea is a great investment – especially during the winter. While the upfront costs of a generator may seem high, keep in mind that there are many benefits to installing one for you and your family:

Power

The ultimate reason to have a backup home generator is pretty simple – for power. You often don’t realize how many of your daily tasks require power, and when you experience a power outage (whether it be from a storm, damaged power lines, faulty power station, ect.), you find out how many things are nearly impossible to do. With a generator, you’ll be able to continue living your life normally and won’t have to find ways to cope.

Peace of Mind

Nothing beats the peace of mind you’ll get when you install a backup generator. You won’t have to worry about losing your heat or air conditioning, finding ways to light your house, risking food spoilage, having no hot water, and more. With a generator, you’ll know that you and your family will continue to be comfortable if you lose power.

Theft Deterrence

Unlike a portable generator, a backup generator is nearly impossible to steal, so you won’t have to worry about waking up one day to find your investment gone.

Protection

A loss of power can lead to damaged technology, damaged HVAC equipment, flooded basements, frozen pipes, and other problems in your home. Having a backup generator means you’ll be protected from any mishaps due to power outages (which can be very costly). In addition, you’ll be able to stay warm during the cold winter.

Money Saved

When you lose power, you’ll probably head to the nearest hotel in order to have hot water, heat or air conditioning, and electricity. With a generator, however, you won’t have to spend your money to live somewhere else.

Generators range in power from 3 kilowatts to 45 kilowatts. Call one of our home electrical service experts – we’ll help you decide which generator is right for your family and your budget. Or, schedule an appointment for a no-cost, no-obligation home analysis.
