This weekend’s snowstorm is a preview of what’s to come for the rest of the winter. While it started out mild, it looks like we’ve run out of luck here in Maryland. The last thing you want in two feet of snow is to lose power and heat. In this day and age, most homes no longer have fireplaces and other traditional means of heat or cooking when snow wreaks havoc.
If your backup generator needs repairs or seems like it may be on the fritz, now is not the time to take chances. Call TriStar Electric and schedule your generator repair as soon as possible, so you can have some peace of mind even with several feet of snow in coming.
Why have a backup generator?
Backup generators aren’t just useful for snowstorms. Any threats of power loss or blackouts can benefit from having one. Some of these threats (beyond snow) include: hurricanes, earthquakes, thunderstorms, tornadoes, flooding, ice, hail, and any other natural disaster that can take down power lines.
Depending on the situation, it can sometimes take days, or even weeks, for power to be restored. This isn’t a worry for a home with a backup generator.
Of course, the backup generator has to be running correctly in order to properly power your home. Trying to run a generator that needs repairs can be dangerous for you and your home. Schedule generator repair ahead of time so you’re prepared for the worst weather nature has to bring Maryland.
