Benefits of Having a Whole-Home Generator

Benefits of Having a Whole-Home Generator

Think back to Hurricane Sandy. On top of the flooding you probably experienced, how long were you left without power after the storm? If you had had a backup generator, you wouldn’t have had to deal with all the stress and potential danger that came from being without power. Whole-home generators offer a number of benefits to keep your home and family safe and comfortable.

Keep Your Food Fresh

One of the biggest issues homeowners face during a power outage is a lack of refrigeration. If your fridge doesn’t receive power to keep your food cold, you could potentially get ill from eating it. And if you don’t eat it, you’re throwing your hard earned money right into the trash. Your generator will keep your refrigerator on so you don’t have to worry about the safety of your food.

Keep Your Home Comfortable

If your heating and cooling system runs on electricity, a power outage will make for a very uncomfortable environment. Your home can quickly become freezingly cold or stiflingly hot without a powered HVAC system. Your generator will keep your system running so you don’t have to deal with discomfort on top of a power outage.

Keep Your Medical Equipment Running

If you or someone in your family relies on electronic medical equipment to stay safe and healthy, a power outage can meet in disaster. Your generator will provide your home with enough power to keep any medical devices on and running so there’s no risk of an emergency.

Keep Your Kids Calm

As an adult, you know that the power will eventually turn back on— but the same can’t always be said for your children. Being in the dark is scary and stressful for them, so having a whole-home generator to keep the lights on, and a movie playing can keep them distracted and calm until regular power is restored.
