Be Prepared with a Whole Home Backup Generator
Sometimes life throws us unexpected challenges. When the power goes out, critical systems such as refrigeration and security can be knocked out–that’s why a whole home backup generator is the best way to keep things running.
Backup generators–otherwise known as standby generators or whole home generators–keep things running by immediately activating when the main power sources to your home stop working. Today’s backup generators turn on instantly, which means you’ll experience no lapse in service.
Below, discover why backup generators are important, and how to choose the best one for your home. In the event of an emergency, it could be the one thing that will keep your family comfortable and safe.
Savings & Comfort by Keeping Your Home Running
Peace of mind is important for everything to do with your home. That’s why losing power is often a stressful and costly ordeal.
For those who have emergency backup generators, concerns over losing power are left behind. But, for those who do not have a backup generator–or one that is not equipped to service their home properly–there is a risk for some of the following consequences:
- Lights Out!
No lights mean your home becomes dangerous to navigate after the sun goes down.
- Getting Cold
Some heating systems are powered by electricity. When the power goes out, the temperature will drop.
- Food Safety
If your refrigerator is not running, that means some foods will spoil. This is an especially important concern if you lose power for two or more days.
These are just a few of the concerns you should have about losing power. But, with a properly installed backup generator, you will be able to avoid all these risks and live with peace of mind.
How Do Whole Home Backup Generators Work?
Backup generators are designed to keep the power running in your home when the main source of power, the power grid, gives out.
Modern backup generators are designed to turn on immediately when the power goes out. An automatic transfer switch commands the generator to turn on, then transfers the electrical load–another word for the power demand your home and appliances put on the electrical system–to the generator.
All this takes place automatically, which means that when you cannot be home, your generator will turn itself on. Also, backup generators are hooked up to your home’s fuel source which ensures they will have sufficient fuel to start up and keep on running.
Keeping Your Critical Systems Running
One of the most important benefits of having a backup generator is keeping all the systems critical to your life running.
Several of these critical systems include:
- Medical Devices
- Security Systems
- Refrigeration Systems
- Fire, Smoke, and Carbon Monoxide (CO) Monitoring Systems
- Air Conditioning
- Sump Pumps
- Water Pumps
- Large Appliances
Backup generators have been designed to ensure that they do not harm the various electrical systems in your home.
