Get A Back-Up Generator For Your Home’s “Mission Critical” Power Needs
A power outage can wreak havoc around the house.
The juice goes out, and suddenly you’re left without the use of a great many things you and your family have come to rely upon.
Needless to say, the kids won’t be able to finish watching that movie on TV.
Not only is “laundry day” on hold… you have to fret about whether the outage will last long enough to ruin all the frozen and refrigerated food in the house.
And the “comfort system” is out, too… which means you could be in for some very uncomfortable hours as you wait out a summer swelter or a frosty blast from Old Man Winter.
And there’s nothing you can do about it.
Once the power’s out, the problem is out of your hands. You are at the mercy of the utility crews who are working to restore electrical service in your neighborhood.
But there is something you can do to protect your home and family from the next outage.
You can call your qualified electrician, who can check out your home’s power needs and tell you what it would take to provide a back-up generator system that can take the worry and expense (and maybe even the discomfort) out of power outages.
And it could be easier (and more affordable) than you might think.
Outages: A Problem That’s Only Getting Worse
In the U.S., much has been written about the age of the nation’s power grid.
We’ve had the luxury of a “modern” electrical infrastructure in America for generations. The U.S. was one of the first parts of the world to power-up… so it stands to reason, ours is one of the world’s most “well-seasoned” electrical grids.
And, like all of us, it isn’t getting younger.
Add “crazy” weather to the situation – an increase in the number and severity of adverse events – and you have a “perfect storm” that puts power outages on the rise.
And once you add up the damages (remember all the frozen food you had to replace after the last outage?), power outages cost the U.S. economy more than $30 billion a year.
As the infrastructure continues to “season,” and if the weather continues to worsen, experts say that number could more than double.
Once considered a luxury enjoyed by only the wealthiest home owners, back-up generators are finding their way into middle-class homes in increasing numbers.
As the cost of a back-up system goes down (and the cost of damage caused by outages goes up), more and more people are seeing how much sense it makes to back up their home’s electrical utility service.
Your electrician can help you determine just what kind of back-up generator system is right for your home:
You don’t need to fear the eventuality of a power outage. Call your qualified electrician today and find out how you can protect your home’s most important systems and appliances from uncomfortable (and potentially expensive) disruptions in electrical service. Get rid of that “powerless” feeling… for good!
