5 Reasons Why a Standby Generator is a Smart Investment

We are now entering the heart of hurricane season on the East Coast, and residents of Virginia need to think about protecting their power supply. The best way to keep your home up-and-running during a severe storm is by investing in a standby generator. Here are five reasons why this is a wise purchase for any homeowner:

1. Standby generators automatically turn on when they detect a power outage.

Standby generators can automatically detect when there is a blackout, and power on within seconds to provide your home with the energy it needs – you don’t even need to lift a finger.

2. When properly sized, standby generators provide enough energy to power your entire home.

Unlike portable generators, which provide a limited supply of power, standby generators can run your entire home. This includes your lights, refrigerator, HVAC system, sump pump, televisions, and anything else you may need to help get you through the storm.

3. A standby generator never needs to be refueled.

Portable generators need to be refueled every few hours. Not only is your home left without power during this time, but it also requires you to venture out into inclement weather conditions. Standby generators, on the other hand, hook up directly to your home’s gas line, meaning they never need to be refueled.

4. Standby generators give you peace of mind.

With a standby generator, you can feel at ease knowing that you are protected from losing power during the next big storm. Who can put a price on that?

5. A standby generator can actually save you money.

When you break down the numbers, a generator can actually save you money by preventing thousands of dollars in unwanted damages. Not to mention, these devices also increase the resale value of your home.
