Winter storms are harsh – they can cause your home to lose power throughout the day and last well into the night. When you lose power, you lose access to a lot of essentials. Depending on how cold it is outside, loss of power could even be life threatening. It is important to always be prepared for the winter, such as having ample food storage, extra blankets and flashlights, and of course, a backup generator.
Why a Generator?
Generators are quickly becoming a key component to disaster preparedness. They provide your family with safety – keeping you indoors instead of having to leave your home in harsh weather. They also offer other key benefits, including:
What Size Generator Do I Need?
You will need to contact an electrical contractor to see what type and size of generator you need. Also, depending on what you need to run during the power outage, you may require a large or small generator.
Can I Afford a Backup Generator?
Backup generators are much more affordable than homeowners realize. And, because they increase your home’s value, you will actually earn a return on the investment.
Install a Backup Generator Before Winter Hits
Storms are on the horizon and as winter kicks off, so will the snow, heavy winds and ice. Be prepared by having your backup generator already installed and ready to go. Contact an electrical contractor to have your home or business assessed so that you know what size generator is right for your situation.
