Save Yourself the Hassles that Power Outages Bring
January, 24th, 2019
Do you have a plan for what you will do if the power goes out? As a homeowner, it’s a good idea to know what you will do or where you will go if your home loses power, especially if it remains out for several days or more.
One of the best ways to combat anxiety about a power outage is to set yourself up so the outage won’t affect you as much. When you install a whole home generator, you’re getting peace of mind because your generator will take over when the power disappears.
Not sure if a generator is for you? Here are just a few good reasons to install one soon.
- Your generator will come on automatically. You won’t even have to venture out in the storm to fire it up. We’ll set it up so that it will monitor the power to your home and provide what you need when the usual channels aren’t.
- South Carolina gets uncomfortable fast! Even if the storm manages to cool the air, you still have to deal with the humidity. Most people find themselves getting sticky within just a few minutes of the power going out. Your emergency power generator will keep your air conditioner running so you don’t suffer this way.
- Save the food in your fridge. When the power goes out, your fridge stops working. If it’s only out for a couple of hours, most of your food will probably still be fine. If it’s out for much longer than that, though, things will start to go bad. You could end up replacing your entire fridge and freezer stash! You could also end up losing any essential medications that you have to keep cold. That’s a lot of money and a lot of hassle! Save yourself the stress with one of our whole home generators.
- Protect yourself when the power comes back on. Sometimes, return power does more damage than power loss does. When power first returns, it can be intermittent or have voltage fluctuations and/or surges. These can damage appliances, including computers or televisions that are on the circuit. Your generator will protect you from these so you can keep everything plugged in and use it as you normally would.
