If you have ever experienced a power outage, you know how uncomfortable it can be after a short amount of time. With no running electricity, your home can become very warm quickly, especially after a storm.
However, with a generator, you can keep your home running efficiently through any blackout or outage. Continue reading to learn why having a backup generator would benefit you, and how Southern Air can provide you with one!
There are several reasons you may consider investing in a generator, such as:
When the power goes out, kiss all your appliances goodbye. Should you experience a blackout, you will no longer be able to use your lights, refrigerator or even oven if it is electric. Additionally, power outages can severely damage your electronics and kitchen appliances by blowing fuses or wires. This may lead to costly repairs. To prevent this, get a generator!
As previously mentioned, when the power goes out, so does your refrigerator and freezer. All perishables will begin to spoil and meat will begin thawing out. This is unfortunate especially if you just went grocery shopping, and will be expensive to repair all the food that went bad! A generator will keep your refrigerator and freezer running, and all your food fresh and edible.
You will notice that the longer your power remains off, the temperature inside your home will. While this may be bearable for a while, during extended power outages your discomfort will rise, especially in times of high heat or extreme cold. Having a backup generator will keep your home at a comfortable temperature, and prevent you or your family from suffering hypothermia or heat stroke.
In addition to all these reasons, having a backup power source will provide great peace of mind. Knowing that when the time comes, you can quickly put your generator to work and keep your power on is great. It is better to be proactive and have one handy, than not have a generator and wish you did. If you are curious about generator installation, contact Southern Air today!
If you or someone within your household has medical equipment that is necessary for survival and health, a backup generator can make all the difference between life or death. Additionally, if there are babies or small children within the home, keeping their bodies at a regulated temperature is critical too.
Other reasons you may take into consideration include keeping your sump pump running. A sump pump is what prevents your basement (if you have one) from flooding by moving water outside your home. When the power goes out, the sump pump will cease to work. If the power has gone out because of a freeze or winter storm, your pipes may freeze and bust as the heat is no longer working in your home.
Lastly, say a storm has caused the power outage and the conditions outside your home or property have made travel or evacuation not possible. You can count on a generator to at least keep you safe and comfortable for the time being.
As previously stated, it is best to have a generator and not be using it, than not have one and be wishing that you did. Having a backup power source can be the difference in saving yourself possibly thousands in costly repairs due to flooding, or replacing appliances that have gone out. It can even mean the difference between life and death.
