There’s nothing like a power outage to remind us how dependent we are on electricity. And in the years following a huge storm like Isasis, during which more than 500,000 people in southeastern Virginia and northeastern North Carolina lost power, a standby generator starts to sound like a necessity.
Standby generators for home use are a great investment that will give you a sense of security during the next power outage. Here are five reasons why you should install a whole house power generator at your Hampton Roads area home:
It may be tough, but we can survive a few days without our laptops and iPads. It’s much more difficult to make it through a week of bitterly cold nights or sweltering days without heat or air conditioning. With the right whole home generator, you can keep your HVAC system running during a power outage and protect your family against the elements.
There’s nothing worse than emptying a full fridge and freezer’s worth of food into the trash. But when the power goes out and the fridge shuts down, there’s no way to stop your groceries from going bad. A generator can be used to keep essential appliances running during an outage so you can keep your family well-fed and avoid wasting money on wasted food.
When the power goes out and our cellphones die, we’re left without a way to contact emergency services if we need them. A home generator will allow you to charge your cellphone so you can check in on friends and family and call for help if you have to.
If you or someone in your household relies on electronic medical equipment, backup power is an absolute necessity. Having a generator system installed will give you peace of mind knowing that you can keep key medical equipment running during an outage.
Everything is scarier in the dark—when the power goes out, a big storm can feel terrifying, especially for little kids. By installing a whole-home generator, you can rest easy knowing that your family will be safe and secure the next time the power goes out. And when it does, you’ll be able to keep calm and ride out the storm.
Whole house generators vary in price depending on how much power you need. Some generators are designed to keep a few key appliances like your HVAC system and refrigerator running during an outage while others are powerful enough to run your entire home for days on end.
