Why Home Generators Matter in Times of Crisis
Posted on November 12th, 2012
Recent storms highlight the need to have a home generator system
. Duggan’s One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning
can install a permanent generator in your home, so you will be ready to go in the event that you lose power. The time to invest in a backup generator
is before the storm hits, so you won’t have to worry about what you will do if the power goes out.
Never Take Power for Granted
Imagine for a moment what would happen if you lost power in a big storm. Without electricity, your refrigerator and freezer aren’t working. If you have an electric kitchen, you aren’t going to be cooking meals. With electric starters in most furnaces, you won’t have heat even if you have a gas furnace. Standard generators available in stores often sell out in the days before a major storm hits, so you won’t be able to go out and buy a generator. Even if you have a regular generator, you will wind up with extension cords running all over the house and creating a safety hazard.
Invest in a Quality Backup Generator
When you trust Augusta electricians
to install an integrated backup generator, you won’t have to worry about any of those problems. Running through your fuse box, the generator will kick in automatically to continue powering the services you need most. The generator size you choose will dictate how many appliances you can continue running. You may choose to go without lights and television in favor of having a working refrigerator, furnace, stove, and perhaps a few outlets to keep your cell phone charged and a radio working. While your neighbors are trapped in the dark trying to live off the camping gear in their garage and burning through batteries, you will have a steady supply of power. The only thing you will have to do is remember to have a few extra gas tanks filled before the storm arrives.
