Benefits of a Generator

Power outages are often unpredictable. Even if there’s a storm warning, this time you may be fine, but last time your power went out right away. You never know!

That’s why it’s crucial to always be prepared. One of the best ways to prepare for a power outage is by using a standby generator. Here are five reasons you’ll want to install one of these generators at your home.

1. Preserve Food & Beverages

While a short-term power outage may not impact what’s in your refrigerator, an outage that lasts a day or more can certainly mean spoiled food. So you either have to cook up a feast ( in a non-electric appliance) or throw it out. That could potentially be a lot of money wasted, but with a generator, this isn’t an issue.

2. Keep Your Home Comfortable

Power outages don’t just happen during heavy wind or rain. Extreme heat can cause power outages if the electrical grid is overloaded. So at the time you need it most, a standby generator will ensure your AC can operate and keep you cool.

3. Automatic Response

Many people wonder why a standby generator is worth it compared to a portable generator. While there are many differences, a significant one is that a standby generator will automatically take over in the event of a power outage. You won’t need to worry about finding the portable generator, hooking it up, and having it fueled.

4. Protect Medicine

Similar to food, medicine sometimes needs to be refrigerated in order to stay effective. A generator will ensure your medications are kept safe during a power outage.

5. Peace of Mind

Finally, a generator gives you peace of mind that you can continue on as normal even if there’s a power outage. You don’t have to change your habits or worry about wasted money. Just a few seconds in the dark, and then you’ll be back in business!
