Home Locations that Benefit From a Standby Generator




Home Locations that Benefit From a Standby Generator

Posted on:28 May, 2019 / Posted In: About

Location, location, location as they say — and that is especially true when it comes to investing in backup power. While most homes, from a rural cabin to an urban townhome, can benefit from backup power, there are a few home details that will impact the usefulness of a standby generator.

Here are three of the most important factors when deciding to invest in standby power:

  1. Extreme temperatures – If your locale experiences extreme temperatures — whether they are boiling summers or frozen winters — a backup generator is an extremely wise investment. On the surface, a generator has the very important function of keeping your home’s HVAC systems running during an outage. Without power, forced-air heating systems will stop working, making your home dangerously cold during a brutal winter night. Likewise, all portable AC systems are run through electricity and will be similarly useless when the power goes down. Whether you are facing numbing cold or debilitating heat, a standby generator can help!
  2. Prone to flooding – Spring is here, and that means flood season is upon us. If you live in an area which is known for its spring rains — especially when those rains tend to trickle into your basement — backup power is a must! The massive thunderstorms which often result in the worst flooding (when paired with snowmelt and saturated ground) also have a habit of taking down electrical lines. When your electricity goes down, the last thing you want to be doing is mopping up a foot of water by hand. Backup power not only keeps your sump pump running, but it also keeps your radio and TV on, giving you essential updates about worsening conditions.
  3. Rural – anyone who lives out in the country knows that things work a little differently when your nearest neighbor is a half-mile down the road. Living away from the bustle of a city has its benefits, allowing you to avoid stressful commutes and improving your solitude. But when things go wrong, you tend to be on your own. Self-reliance is especially important during cases of extreme weather and power outages. Rural homes are usually left without power for longer than more populated areas, as electrical technicians prioritize restoring power to the most people at once. Likewise, small rural roads are a nightmare to drive on during heavy rain or snow, and you’re more likely to shack up at home and wait out the storms. Staying at home becomes much easier when you have the assurance of reliable backup power.

If your home falls into one or more of these categories, a reliable standby generator from GenTec is the right option for you! It is necessary that your home’s systems stay running, especially during extreme temperature, flooding, and when you are out in the country.
