There’s an old adage that goes: “hope for the best, prepare for the worst.” When you buy insurance, it is you hedging your bets against the worst possible scenarios — that your car breaks, that you are hurt on the job — and provides you with a cushion, should any of those scenarios come to pass. When you get a standby generator installed, the same saying holds true. After all, with any luck, your generator will never turn on! However, turning your generator on from time to time is another way you can prepare for the worst. After all, a broken generator is worth about as much as no generator at all. If you find that your standby generator isn’t working during your test-run, get in touch with our Plainfield generator repair services. After all, it is better to be safe than sorry!
So you’ve already spent a lot of money on a generator — particularly one that is reliable and installed by experts — and you haven’t gotten much use out of it over the years. Worse still, during your annual tune-up, the generator didn’t turn on! So far, the costs seem to outweigh the potential problems that could arise from not having one. After all this time, is it even worth it to get your generator repaired? What’s the worst that could happen without a reliable standby generator?
Consider this scenario. It’s winter (and you know what that means around NWI and Chicago!), and an ice storm rolls in from Lake Michigan. You’ve been lucky and the winds and freezing rain have missed your area during the previous winters. This time, you’re not so fortunate, and the ice pummels every inch of your town, taking down power lines in the process. Suddenly, all your neighbors are stranded without power — which includes many homes’ central heating, as well as refrigerators and lights. Good thing you paid for Plainfield generator repair!
Or consider a spring thunderstorm — complete, as usual, with torrential rainfall — that hits the power lines, stealing your electricity and leaving you to watch helplessly as the waters begin to rise around your home. Good thing your generator is there with reliable backup power, perfect for powering your sump pump.
Whichever season we’re in, apocalyptic events arise that can threaten your safety and that of your home. Keeping your generator tuned-up and ready to rumble will, in turn, keep your home prepared for the worst.
