Should I Own A Generator In Case Of An Emergency?

May 26, 2022 | Blog

In times of extreme weather – hurricane season, heatwaves, snowstorms – it is always useful to have a backup generator in the event you suffer from a power outage. You may think such purchase may not come in handy, or it will just sit around not being put to use. But in times of need, having one ready to go will give you great peace of mind!

If you’re still unsure about it, our team at Bob’s Heating & Air Conditioning has a couple of reasons why having a backup generator will benefit you and your home the next time an emergency or severe weather occurs!

Keep Appliances Running

In the event of a freeze, storm, or extreme heat, blackouts are not unusual. If that happens, all your household appliances like your refrigerator and air conditioning unit will be useless without power. Besides that, any possible electronics, like TVs or gaming systems, could possibly get damaged in the event of a blackout, which is costly to replace.

Additionally, if someone in the household has necessary medical equipment that has to stay on or charged, a backup generator can make all the difference in an emergency. Call a professional to ask about a generator installation, so you can keep all those appliances on!

Prevent Food Loss

Nothing is more unfortunate than your power going out, and the food in your refrigerator and freezer going bad, especially after you just bought groceries. Not only is this unfortunate, but costly. While some may try to salvage any foods or perishables using coolers and ice, this only lasts for so long.

With a backup generator, you can have peace of mind knowing all your food will stay fresh and secure through a power outage, and you won’t have to run out to buy more groceries!

Avoid Flood Damage

When a major storm comes in, flash flooding usually occurs. If this happens, kiss your sump pump goodbye! A sump pump is what keeps water from flooding your basement, and redirects it out of the house. With no power, your basement will flood in minutes and anything valuable in it will be ruined.

With a generator on standby, you can quickly save your property from flooding and any expensive damage that could occur. If you live in a flood risk area, ask a professional what kind of generator is best for your home to keep your sump pump running!

Give Yourself Peace of Mind

While it may seem extra precautionary, it is better to be proactive and have a backup generator ready to use than wishing you had one. In times of severe weather and blackouts, the power to your area could be out anywhere from hours to days.

A generator can ensure you, your family and your home are comfortable from prolonged heat or cold. Additionally, it will keep all your necessities like AC and heat pumps on, and your appliances can be used to cook or clean up if necessary.
