Do I Need A Backup Generator?

May 22, 2023 | Blog

One of the inevitable parts of living in the South is the unpredictable weather. In Alabama, there are plenty of days where the weather can be fine one second, and the biggest storm you’ve ever seen the next! When you’re trying to make it through these storms, it can be easy to lose track of the little things that can help.

At Baldwin Heating & Cooling, we know that power outages can cause a lot of damage. Whether it’s broken appliances from power surges, wasted foods from lack of refrigeration or simply being too cold from lack of heat, not having energy is a huge deal! That’s why we recommend that Daphne and other Alabama residents invest in a backup generator!

What Is A Backup Generator?

While a generator made for backup doesn’t seem like a necessary investment, there are many benefits to having one. These generators provide electrical power during outages, or in instances when electricity is unavailable. They come in various sizes and power capacities and even have portable units. Larger generators can power entire buildings and facilities for days at a time.

These generators are essential for businesses and homes that rely on electricity such as hospitals and other emergency services. They provide peace of mind as they provide uninterrupted streams of power, which can reduce the risk of power surges and outages.

Power surges can permanently harm appliances after power outages. Getting a generator for backup power would reduce the risk of power surges, while also giving you power during outages! This will save you hundreds if not thousands in damages while providing you the safety you deserve.

What Generator Services Can I Schedule?

Services for your generator can be hard to find, but they’re very important to schedule. It is the best way to make sure you have access to backup power during storms! The different types of services you can schedule are:


The process of setting up a new generator system can be complex, which is why you will need to schedule it as its own service. You can hire a professional technician that will help you determine the size and type of generator that you will need. From there, the installation process can begin.

Maintenance and Monitoring

Maintenance is essential to keep your generator running smoothly. You should schedule routine inspections at least once a year. The best times to schedule are once before the spring and once before the fall. This is because these are particularly harsh seasons and you will need your generator to be in top condition.

Monitoring is a great part of maintenance because it is a way that your technician can remotely check the health of your generator. This allows for opportunity to catch problems without having to schedule an appointment.

Excellent install of a generator by Jake & Ryan. They went over and above, working late waiting for the utility inspector to come out for final inspection. Couldn’t be happier…these guys are the best.
