Living without electricity seems like a ludicrous proposition for the modern person. Indeed, today we use various forms of power to do everything, like wash our clothes, heat and cool our homes, cook our food, bathe our children, and charge the devices that provide us with entertainment and the ability to communicate.
Which is why a blackout may feel like a blast from the past. And while a power outage can be fun for a minute or two, being without power for hours or days on end can be a very serious cause for concern.
At Generator Technologies, Inc., our generator installation professionals in Hoffman Estates, Illinois know how important power is for our lives. We take power seriously, which is why we are committed to helping you choose the right generator for installation for your Hoffman Estates’ home or business.
With the exception of those that already have very, very minor or no electricity needs (which is probably unheard of in Hoffman Estates), nearly every home and small or mid-sized business owner could benefit from a standby generator.
The average home has a power need of about 5,000 watts. This amount of power can keep the lights on, keep the refrigerator and freezing running, provide energy for a sump pump, and give you enough gas to keep computers, phones, and televisions plugged in. If you have extra energy needs, such as special devices or emergency medical equipment, a larger-than-average home, a second kitchen or additional refrigerator, or high home cooling or heating needs, you may need more than 5,000 watts of energy.
Which is why if the power goes out, you’ll need a standby generator. Not only does a standby generator provide you with a seamless source of power if the lights go out (you’ll only have to wait a few seconds before your standby generator will automatically kick on), but these generators are powerful enough to power your entire home. Indeed, most standby generators offer between 5,000 and 20,000 watts of energy! Most portable generators only offer up to 8,500, and sometimes much less than that.
Even if you don’t have important equipment that you need to keep running in the event of a storm, natural disaster, or other event that causes a power outage, having a standby generator ready to kick on can provide you with a lot of peace of mind. You’ll be able to stay warm (or cool, depending upon the time of year), cook dinner for your family, keep your security systems running, and of course, keep the lights on.
