When your home loses power in the event of utility failure or a broken power line, the causes can be myriad. However, despite the large number of potential causes contributing to the failure, the prognosis is usually the same — installing a generator in your home can solve the problem quickly. With a home power generating system, you can keep your home warm in the winter, cool in the summer and maintain the modern conveniences.
Maintaining Your Standard of Living
When you install a household generator for the purposes of keeping your home running, you are also working to keep your home functional for cold food storage, heat and enjoyment. While you may have a laptop with an extended battery or a phone to watch movies on, having a secondary generator for power when those batteries begin to fail is a prime way to maintain your standard of living through even the worst situation.
The Health of Your Home
When most people think about the use of a portable generator, they think primarily of camping or the construction site. Charging batteries and running small tools is good, but this is not the most important function of a proper generator. With generators of an appropriate kilowatt or kW load tailored to your home’s needs, you can actually maintain your home through inclement weather. In the winter time, if you are snowed in and the temperature is extremely low it may be critical to protect your cold foods from spoilage. Just as importantly, you want to keep your home warm for more than your own comfort. The warmth in your home will also keep your walls from frosting up and your pipes from bursting, which can be extremely costly.
Portable Generators are Not Enough
A portable generator is good to have for a small space heater, a light, a TV or a laptop. However, the permanently installed types of generators are far more effective when it comes time to actually protect your home from being damaged during inclement weather. When the situation turns negative, your generators should be permanently installed, regularly tested and should run ample wattage to support your normal home functions.
