Should You Buy A Generator?
Every year we have weeks of non-stop good weather. The sun pops out, the ice storms stay away, and hurricane-force winds are nowhere to be seen.
Don’t get too comfortable.
Things can change quickly. And that’s when you wish you would have taken the proper precautions the most.
If you don’t have a generator, now may be the perfect time to invest in one. If you have one in place, today may be the perfect opportunity to get it into good working condition.
If the Atlanta storms leave you without power, you will have to make alternative arrangements to do everything from keeping your groceries refrigerated to heating or cooling your home. You’ll have to find someplace else to shower. You’ll have to find someplace else to cook dinner. All of these factors can impact your daily routine.
However, these are just a few of the things you’ll never have to think about if you have a generator in place. Power loss in the summer can be uncomfortable without the possibility of cooling your home during the evening hours. But that same outage in the heart of winter can be life-threatening if you can’t heat your home.
Should you invest in a generator for your home? Ask yourself a few questions.
Do you live in an area that is prone to ice storms? Ice is one of the top reasons for power loss in winter, where ice coatings can damage power lines and crews may not be able to resolve the problem for long periods of time.
Do you or your family have special medical needs? If you use medical equipment throughout the day, such as the need of an oxygen supply system, your home power system requires backup for the just in case.
Do you work from home? Because an increasing number of our population is working from home, a generator is a great investment in preventing downtime and keeping your business running during power failures. Widespread power outages are the perfect sign for criminals to take advantage of the situation. However, if you have a power generator in place, you can keep your home and your security system operating around the clock.
