For most homeowners, power outages are highly inconvenient, and for some, they can be downright dangerous. Not only are more and more people working and learning from home these days, but many people also rely on electricity-dependent medical equipment to get them through the day.
Fortunately, installing a home generator will ensure your power supply remains active even when everyone else’s lights go out. At Harrison Electric, we understand many homeowners can’t afford to lose their power supply. In this blog, we outline why installing a home generator is an excellent choice if you’re one of those individuals.
1. Uninterrupted Internet
Just about everyone relies on the internet for something these days, whether it’s work, school, or communication. But when the power goes down, you can kiss your internet goodbye, and you never know when it’ll come back online.
Installing a home generator is the only way to ensure your internet connection remains stable even in the event of a power outage. And with ever-increasing numbers of people working and learning from home these days, an electrical backup system is a worthwhile consideration for every home.
2. No Downtime When the Power Goes Out
When the power goes down, a whole-house generator kicks in within a matter of seconds. It immediately detects the power loss and begins running to prevent an electrical service interruption. And when the power comes back on, the generator continues to run for a few minutes to ensure the power supply is stable. When it detects a stable supply of electricity, it then powers down and recharges itself.
Whether you work from home, homeschool your kids, or rely on critical machinery or appliances, installing a home generator is essential if you’d like uninterrupted electrical service no matter what.
3. Keep Critical Machinery Running
Many people depend on critical pieces of machinery, such as CPAP machines, electric mobility devices, home dialysis equipment, and oxygen tanks. And as anyone who relies on electricity-dependent medical equipment knows, the need for that machinery doesn’t stop when the power goes out.
Installing a home generator is the best way to ensure that individuals who require such equipment are able to use it even in the event of a power outage. While backup batteries are certainly effective, they only hold a charge for a few hours, and when the power is down, recharging them is impossible without a backup system.
4. Enjoy Normal Conveniences
You rely on your refrigerator, freezer, air conditioner, heater, and a variety of other electricity-dependent appliances on a daily basis. But when the power goes out? You lose the ability to use those appliances as you normally would — unless you have a backup generator. Worse, you never know how long the power will remain out, which means you could wait several hours to get back to your regularly scheduled activities.
Want to keep up with your normal routine even in the event of an extended power outage? Then installing a home generator is the best way to do that.
