5 Pros of Purchasing a Backup Generator

Imagine that you’re on your way home from work when a bad thunderstorm hits. The snow is coming down inch after inch. What are the first thoughts that pop into your head?

“Do we have enough ice to keep the food from spoiling?”

“How are we going to stay warm/cool?”

“How are we going to keep the kids entertained?”

Everyone has heard the hum of emergency generators in their neighborhoods during a power outage, but have you ever thought of getting one for your own home?

In today’s technology-fueled world, the possibility of a huge winter snowstorm or a summer thunderstorm could be a disaster. Trying to keep your family occupied during a power outage can be frustrating, and constantly worrying about whether your food is going to go bad or the cell phones have been charged can be stressful.

Here are five reasons why a backup generator may be a good investment:

Generators can potentially save you money!
Think of all the money on groceries that could be wasted if you have to throw out an entire refrigerator full of food.

Generators will help keep you cool in the summer & warm in the winter!
Eliminate the worry about keeping the climate of your home normal when you have a generator to kick in when the power goes out.

Some generators are portable and relatively cheap.
This type of generator can come in handy when the power is out for a short time, and can be taken with you wherever you go.

A large, standby generator can be hooked up to your home’s circuit panel.
This means you don't have to go outside in bad weather and manually turn on the generator if your power goes out.

Generators can power your entire house!
This will allow everyone in your home to resume their usual activities like watching television, surfing the internet or even just reading by lamplight.

If any of these reasons resonate with you, an investment in a generator might be just what you need! Contact your Ann Arbor heating and cooling specialist today to explore your options!

What is a Home Standby Generator?

Are you tired of your electricity going out during a storm?

Who knows when your power will come back on? It could be days!

Many homeowners can’t afford to lose power with responsibilities like running their businesses, paying bills online, or staying in touch with relatives.  Even people who don’t run their own businesses still feel stuck without electricity because we’re all accustomed to relying on it 24/7 to keep us connected.

Our Ann Arbor heating and cooling experts suggest that you buy the right standby generator for your home. Make sure you know the strength and endurance required:

You should buy a generator that compliments the electrical panel in your home. For example, if your home has a 200-amp main breaker, that is the highest amount of electricity your home can consume.

Next, you need to decide why you’re in the market for a home standby generator in the first place. Do you want to be able to power your air conditioner in the middle of a blackout? Are you worried about losing all communication in the event you don’t have  your cell phone?

When you get your home standby generator installed, you’ll be thankful for the peaceful night’s sleep you’ll have the next time your power goes out. No more sleepless nights. No more fighting with your electric company. No more wondering if you’re going to wake up on time for work the next day because you couldn’t charge your phone. You’ll be wondering, “Why didn’t I do this sooner?”
