5 Reasons to Invest in a Standby Generator for Your Home

With severe weather always a possibility in Fairfax County, more and more Virginia homeowners are protecting their power supply with a standby generator. Here are five reasons you should consider investing in one for your home:

  1. They automatically detect power outages. Standby generators can automatically detect when the power goes out, and turn on within seconds to provide your home with the energy it needs. This eliminates any work on your end, and keeps your essentials running if you lose power when the house is empty.

  2. They provide enough energy to power your entire house. Unlike portable generators, which make you choose what devices you want to run, a standby generator can power your entire home – including your lights, refrigerator, and televisions.

  3. They can save you money by preventing costs associated with power outages. Did you know power outages cost American homeowners billions of dollars every year? A standby generator can help minimize expenses by preventing problems such as food spoilage and flooding.

  4. They never need to be refueled. During the installation process, your standby generator will be connected directly to your home’s gas line. This means you will never need to journey out into unsafe weather conditions to refuel your tank.

  5. They give you peace of mind. A standby generator gives you peace of mind knowing that you and your family will stay safe and comfortable, regardless of the weather. Who can put a price on that?
