The Importance of a Home Generator Installation for Emergencies, Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin

Natural disasters can bring down power grids for weeks. A loss of electricity affects every aspect of your life, which is why residents of Wisconsin Rapids, WI, should invest in home generator installation. The residential electrical services staff at E-Con Electric, Inc. break down what a home generator is and its many advantages.

What Is a Home Generator?

generator-installation-e-con-electric-incWhen you lose power, all of your home systems go down. Outages can last anywhere from a few hours to weeks depending on the severity of the issue. However, home generator installation ensures you have backup power as you await restoration or service. They run on propane or natural gas and are typically installed outdoors near cooling units. When the electric power kicks off, the generator automatically turns on, powering your entire home. Since it runs on your home’s natural gas line, service is never interrupted, and you won’t need to refuel as you would with a portable, gasoline-powered unit.

Why Is It Important in an Emergency?

Having consistent power is essential for a number of reasons. Electrically powered heating and cooling systems will be otherwise offline in an outage, which can be a safety issue in extreme temperatures. Your refrigerator and freezer also require power to keep food fresh. Generators can also continue powering well pumps, so you receive fresh water.

The most significant benefit you’ll enjoy with a backup system in place is peace of mind. The professionals at E-Con Electric, Inc. provide safe and reliable generator installation services throughout the Tri-City area.
