Blackouts happen all the time. Whether they’re caused by a big storm, an issue at the power plant, or a critter messing with your power lines, there’s something that every power outage has in common — they’re very inconvenient. So what are you supposed to do?
While you can’t control the factors that cause a power outage, you can control how you deal with one.
Why You Should Get a Generator
To Keep Your Food Safe
One of the biggest issues that arises as a result of a power outage is food safety. If your refrigerator isn’t able to keep your food cold, you’ll end up having to toss a majority of your groceries in the trash, wasting both the food itself and your money. Generators keep your appliances on so you don’t have to worry about your food going bad during a blackout.
To Keep Your Kids Calm
While you may understand that a power outage is only temporary, your kids may not. Your generator can keep your lights, TV, and other appliances on so the kids can stay entertained and calm until the regular power turns back on.
To Keep You Safe
When you invest in a standby generator, the unit will automatically kick on if the regular power goes out. That means you can stay inside with power rather than having to go outside, potentially into a storm, and turn on a portable generator by hand.
To Avoid Flooding
During a big storm, rainwater can pool around your home and potentially flood your basement — especially if a power outage prevents your sump pump from working. When your generator keeps your sump pump powered, you significantly reduce your chances of flooding.
