When you find yourself smack-dab in the middle of an emergency, what do you do? Who do you think about? Your main focus will probably be your family, two-legged and four-legged alike. So when a major storm hits and the power goes out, a backup generator will take care of your home so you can take care of your family.
After detecting a power outage, backup generators immediately swing into action. You won’t go a moment without power. Should a disaster occur, you would have peace of mind knowing your home stills has complete power. Here are the benefits of installing a backup generator!
During an Emergency
In North Carolina, the power goes out at least once a year, if not more! With a standby home generator, you will be able to power your entire house, including your electronics and appliances, during a power outage. Backup generators are automatic, meaning they will turn on when they sense a drop in the power supply. In the event of a storm, or hurricane, retaining power is essential. Standby generators will power your refrigerator and HVAC unit, keeping your perishable food from rotting and your home ventilated. Don’t add to the stress of an emergency by losing power, install a backup generator today!
When You’re Gone
What happens if you are away and the power goes out? Though most common during storms, power outages can occur at any time! In this case, a backup generator will protect your house from any outage-related emergencies such as blackouts, current surges, and voltage surges. In addition, your kitchen will be protected from mold growth and spoiled food, as your refrigerator will remain powered.
Standby generators are connected to your pre-existing natural gas supply. This means that when your unit is in use, you do not need to refuel. This eliminates the potential danger of having to go outside, during a storm or hurricane, to refuel your power source.
Indoor Air Quality
When the power is down, so is your HVAC system. Without a working HVAC system, your home becomes susceptible to mold and mildew, as storms cause humidity to increase. We all know that mold can damage the structure of your home, but did you know it can also affect the health of your family? As mold compromises your home’s air quality, you and your family become at risk for breathing-related issues, such as asthma attacks.
For your backup generator to remain ready to protect you, your family and your home at a moment’s notice, you must keep it maintained. Backup generator maintenance is an easy way to ensure you can count on your generator, and safely wait out a storm.
