CT Plumbing Pros List 3 Reasons You Need a Backup Generator, Stamford, Connecticut

Winter storms often lead to neighborhood electrical blackouts as high winds and heavy ice and snow bring down power lines. To protect yourself, your family, and your business against this emergency, invest in a standby generator. This machine engages automatically when it detects a power outage, turning the lights back on and returning power to your home or office. Below, Schede Plumbing & Heating—the leading plumbing contractor and generator installation service in Stamford, CT—offers three compelling reasons to install a standby generator. With a bit of foresight and planning, you can ride out an electrical outage with little to no inconvenience.

3 Reasons You Need a Backup Generator

1. Furnace

When you lose power in the winter, you'll soon discover that even a gas or oil furnace won’t operate when the power's out. The blower motor and pilot light are tied to the electrical system, so your home or office will grow colder until power is restored. To keep family, customers, and employees warm in the event of an outage, consider installing a standby generator.

2. Lights

PlumberA standby generator will help your children stay calm during an emergency by automatically bringing the lights back up and returning a sense of normalcy. If you run a business, you will likely have to close until the power returns if you cannot light your office, store, or manufacturing facility. A standby generator will keep lights on and signage illuminated, so you can continue to attract and serve customers.

3. Appliances & Equipment

In addition to lights, a generator will keep your appliances, computers, and communications equipment charged and running. That way, you don't have to risk food spoilage, and you can continue with your day as you normally do.
