Why Get A Backup Generator?

Why Get A Backup Generator?

Generac Backup GeneratorIt’s 9:30 PM on a cold December night.  The sun went down hours ago and a brutal storm plasters the windows with snow.  You’re just about to put the kids to bed when you suddenly hear a crackle.  Everything goes dark.  Outside, the winter wind howls.  Just the sound of it makes you shiver.

The power’s gone out. How long will it stay out?  Is it just a short outage, or did something go critically wrong at the power plant?  How long will your house stay warm?  Will the food in your fridge spoil?  What do you do?

Meanwhile, down the street, your neighbor who recently installed a backup generator hasn’t noticed a thing.

Electricity Is Everything

It’s so easy to forget how much of our lives revolve around electricity now, up until the point where it goes out.  We rely on it for our lighting, our heating, to keep our food fresh, to entertain us; when we lose it, we lose everything.  Power outages can occur without warning at any moment.  Anything from a minor glitch in the power grid, to a downed power line, to a catastrophic failure at the power plant can cut you off the energy that keeps everything in your house going.  You never know how long the power will be gone.  

An outage can last anywhere from a few moments to a few weeks depending on the cause.  Once it goes out, you’re stuck without power until the issue is resolved.  This may be nothing more than a minor and temporary inconvenience, but under some conditions, an extended power outage may just put you and your family in danger.

Why Get A Back Up Generator?

A propane or natural gas powered generator can be a lifesaver when the power goes out.  These days, it’s a requirement that hospitals have a backup generator to keep their life-support and environment control systems running, lest a power outage result in needless deaths.  Many businesses are installing backup generators as well, since even just an hour without power can be a significant loss of revenue.  Why not take advantage of those benefits in your own home?  Just imagine never having to worry about losing your food, or about getting out the spare blankets on a cold winter night.  If you have a home office and need your computer to do your work, you’ll never have to worry that a power outage may interrupt your business.

A backup generator allows you to maintain your comfort and peace of mind during an emergency.  Your heating stays on and you don’t lose the lights.  No more stumbling around in the dark trying to find a flashlight, no more worrying about the batteries.  You stay warm as the cold rages on outside, or keep cool as the summer sun beats down.  To top it off, a backup generator can protect your home from dangerous voltage fluctuations and power surges when the power finally does come back on.

With all these benefits, the only question that remains is why you haven’t got a backup generator already.
