A home generator is one of those appliances that’s easy to overlook—until you’re in dire need of one. Electricians who perform generator installations can attest that most clients wish they had called them sooner. Don’t wait until a major power outage reminds you why having a home generator is essential. Instead, take a proactive approach and install one now, so you can reap these benefits during the next big outage.
Why You Should Install a Home Generator
1. To Maintain Your Water Supply
If you rely on well water, neither the pump nor filtration system will continue working during a power outage. That means you’ll quickly lose access to fresh tap water that’s safe for drinking without a home generator. You’ll also be unable to shower or bathe until the power comes back on.
2. To Work From Home
If you work from home, lost power could equate to lost wages. Following a generator installation, though, you’ll never have to worry about losing a few hours or a few days’ worth of work just because severe weather strikes.
3. To Preserve Perishables
How much food is in your refrigerator at any given time? And what about in your freezer? If you happen to buy food in bulk, there could be thousands of dollars’ worth of perishables, and they’ll all be lost if the outage that lasts for more than a few hours.
