Keeping Your Atlanta Home Safe and Secure During Power Outages
The lights flicker and flash. And just like that, the power goes out.
It’s at those times when you realize just how much we depend on electricity. You’ll have no light as you move to the dark corners of your home. You’ll have no heating or air conditioning, which can be especially difficult during extreme weather conditions. You’ll have no access to the appliances throughout your home: no cooking, no television, no computer (battery life only).
While it might not be a problem for an hour or two, what if stretches to a day or two? Or three?
A standby generator might be the perfect answer to your problem.
Though many urban homeowners might not think of a backup generator as a common appliance to add to their home systems, they are increasingly becoming more popular. Standby generators are perfect to keep you up and running not matter what’s happening during a storm. They are also life-saving if a family member is especially sensitive to his or her environment.
If you look at the statistics, the number of power outages has been doubling about every five years for the past couple of decades. During an outage, many necessary home systems are out of commission until the power is restored. Standby generators act as a power source to rescue these essential systems and bring them into temporary working order. They include:
- Air conditioning
- Security systems
Backup generators are safe, cost-effective, and invaluable in keeping you safe at home. They can benefit every homeowner throughout the Atlanta region. However, few people think about getting one until they suffer significant loss in the wake of a power loss.
Compared with portable generators, standby generators require little to no effort to use and are prepared to come on automatically when needed. They can provide a hands-free solution to outages caused by extreme weather or other unforeseen events.
