What do you do when you lose power? If you’re like most homeowners, you rummage around the junk drawer or garage for your trusty flashlight and set to work either finding the other flashlights (and perhaps some candles) and possibly your portable generator (hopefully you have some spare gas). But more and more homeowners are considering whole-house generators for their homes. To many, this seems like an obvious home improvement. Few things are as convenient as being able to fire up your whole-house generator to run not only your lights, but also major appliances. Here’s why you need one for your home.
The essence of convenience is reducing labor. The less things you have to do around the house, the more convenient it is. This applies to “emergency” situations as well, and considering how much we all rely on electricity to bring us the Internet, games, TV, movies, lights, dishwashing, clothes washing and hot water (among other amenities), it’s not hard to see that a whole-house generator offers the ultimate in convenience. Just sit back and watch your lights turn back on.
For some homeowners, losing power is also sacrificing the safety if not also the security of your home. This is particularly true if you have medical equipment that needs to be constantly plugged in to an outlet. During the summer and winter months, losing power also means less control over your indoor temperature.
A comfortable home life requires all of the basic amenities, and that includes electricity. Like your plumbing system and the roof over your head, your electrical system is something that you cannot live without these days. A whole-house generator ensures that you don’t sacrifice your comfort.
