Having a generator on your property can help to ensure that you have access to lights, temperature controls, electronics, and technology in the event of a blackout. As you think about the advantages of a generator, don’t overlook the value of an automatic standby generator. Here are five reasons you should get a standby generator for your home or business—
Unlike portable generators, which often have a runtime of a few hours before needing to be refueled, a standby generator will run longer because it is connected directly to an energy source, usually a natural gas line. Power that’s provided by a standby generator is consistent and eliminates your need to be constantly refueling the generator or checking on it.
Another benefit of a standby generator, as opposed to a portable generator, is that power is automatic. Because the system is directly connected to an energy source and the home’s or business’s electrical system, it will detect a power outage and kick on within a matter of seconds as soon as energy loss is recognized.
If you have critical systems in your home or business, including data protection systems, medical equipment that provides life-saving support, or other important energy-dependent technology, you’ll have peace of mind in knowing that these systems will continue running even if there is a power outage. For business owners, this could be the difference between continued operations and major losses.
When there is an emergency or a power outage, being able to communicate with family members, neighbors, and the community is essential. Without charged and powered devices, your lines of communication will be shot. Not only may this leave you feeling isolated, but it could be dangerous, too, in the event that there are more emergency updates provided by a local or state agency.
Finally, in addition to all of the benefits above, having a standby generator on your property gives peace of mind. There is comfort in knowing that when all goes dark, you’ll have light.
