Hurricane Preparation: Benefits of a Stand-By Generator

Hurricane Preparation: Benefits of a Stand-By Generator

With all of the storms out there, you want to make sure you and your family are as prepared as you can be.

Hurricane season is in full swing, with the most powerful Atlantic storm in recorded history expected to make landfall in southern Florida any day now. With all of the storms out there, you want to make sure you and your family are as prepared as you can be. Sometimes power outages can last for days, and no one wants that! Avoid extended outages, or any outages at all, by installing a stand-by generator.

Power Essential Systems

Electricity is no longer just a modern convenience, we’ve come to rely on it for essential home systems. For some people, a power outage is more than a mere inconvenience, it can be a safety issue.

Sump pumps, heat pumps, air conditioning, and so much more all rely on electricity to function. If you live in an area that is prone to flooding, you will likely have a sump pump to prevent your basement from flooding. This vital piece of equipment cannot do its job without electricity.

Your refrigerator and freezer both need electricity in order to keep food cold. After just a few short hours without power, your food starts to spoil. That lost food adds up fast.

A stand-by generator supplies power to your home in the event of an outage. If your home loses power, within 10 seconds your stand-by generator powers up and keeps all of those essential systems up and running.

Huge Convenience

Two words: air conditioning. You really don’t want to have to live without it. It’s becoming increasingly difficult to remember a time when air conditioning wasn’t a standard thing in all homes. We’re all used to it, and going without is a major nuisance. Opening up the windows to get some air isn’t always an option, because when it’s pouring down rain and there are 70mph winds you need to keep your home locked up tight. Install a stand-by generator and you’ll never have to worry about losing that valuable AC!

Another modern convenience that relies on electricity is your electronics. TVs, smart phones, smart watches, computers, and tablets all rely on electricity to charge their batteries. These devices connect us to each other, and without electricity they’re useless. Stay connected with a stand-by generator.
