Why Your Home Should Have An Automatic Backup Generator
Posted on November 16th, 2015 by Devine Bros
Power outages can range from a minor inconvenience to a major problem, but they all have one thing in common: they can be prevented with an automatic backup generator. Here are five reasons why you should get one installed in your home as soon as possible.
They automatically detect power outages.
In the event that your home is affected by a power outage, you won’t even have to lift a finger. Our generators can automatically detect a blackout, and will immediately power on to provide your home with the energy that it needs.
They provide enough energy to power your entire house.
Whereas a portable generator can only run a few of your electrical devices, a standby generator has enough juice to power your entire home – this includes your lights, appliances, and even entertainment devices.
They don’t require refueling.
Don’t worry about venturing out into the middle of a blizzard; these generators never need to be refueled! Instead, they hook up directly to your home’s existing fuel line – whether it be natural gas or a form of liquid petroleum.
They help minimize damage and losses.
Sometimes, a power outage can be the least of your concerns – it’s often the problems they bring along that cause the real headaches. An automatic backup generator helps prevent problems like food spoilage and flooding by ensuring that your home’s critical devices (such as the refrigerator and sump pump) maintain power.
They give you peace of mind.
Between the snow during the winter and the heavy thunderstorms throughout the spring, summer, and fall, power outages are a year-round threat in New England. An automatic standby generator gives you peace of mind knowing that your family will be sheltered and protected during even the harshest of weather conditions. Who can put a price on that?
It is important to realize that these benefits only apply if you have your generator installed by a professional. DIY installation can damage the generator, void your warranty, and present a safety hazard for your family.
