Top 4 Reasons to Have a Whole-Home Generator
The weather is becoming more and more unpredictable, with violent storms and wild climate patterns. Add back a little predictability for peace of mind in your home when you install a whole-home generator.
What Is a Whole-Home Generator?
A whole-home generator is a fuel-powered backup generator that identifies an electrical outage and instantly starts up to restore power to your home.
A whole-home generator is sized according to the number of household appliances you need to power your entire home.
What’s the Difference Between a Whole-Home Generator & a Portable Generator?
The first difference is the amount of power they can supply. A whole-home generator can seamlessly substitute when the power goes out to power your entire home. A portable generator is limited to powering a few key appliances for a brief time.
Portable generators are usually stored somewhere in the home and must be retrieved and set up, which can be difficult with limited lighting. Whole-home generators are permanently installed outside the home. They’re fueled and ready to provide power when needed.
Benefits of Whole-Home Generators
- Enhanced safety and security: A whole-home generator provides peace of mind. A power outage can disrupt important home appliances and be dangerous, especially for older adults. Instant power means there is no scrambling to find flashlights or light candles.
- Protection for electronics: Sensitive electronics like computers and medical equipment are protected from power surges that can happen when power is off and restored.
- Food preservation: Avoid the frustration of throwing away thousands of dollars worth of food or deciding whether the food in your fridge is still edible.
- Continued comfort: It can get uncomfortable pretty quickly when power knocks out your heating and AC systems. A whole-home generator means your temperature stays where you like it.
