Why do I need a Standby Generator?
It’s thundering outside and you’re getting ready to cook dinner. Suddenly- everything goes black! Your power is out- not an uncommon occurrence in SW Florida. With severe storms and hurricanes imminent, blackouts are unavoidable. However- there is something you can do to mitigate the effects of blackouts! You may want to consider a Standby Generator.
Benefits of a Whole Home Standby Generator
One of the greatest benefits of having a whole home standby generator installed in your SW Florida home is peace of mind. Standby generators assure that you keep power in your home, even during severe thunderstorms and even hurricanes!
Along with this, you can also benefit from:
- Continuous backup power. Rest assured that you will have power even through extended power outages- whether those come from severe weather or grid outages. Generators detect utility failure and kick on automatically. This means that even if you are away, your generator will kick on and keep your home up and running.
- Protect crucial systems. Hurricanes have been known to knock out power to homes for up to 2 weeks. This means that you will be without refrigeration, cell phones for communication, stoves, microwaves, and even lights- aside from emergency battery operated ones. Standby generators ensure these systems stay up and running, so that you can continue life as usual following disasters.
