Should I Have A Generator in Case of Emergency?

July 6, 2022 | Blog

We understand if a backup generator might come across as an extra expense. However, we are here to explain how emergency generators are critical to the safety of your family. If your primary unit fails or the power grid in your area collapses, then an emergency generator can make all the difference.

Here at Baldwin Heating & Air Conditioning, we are providing information for you to make the right decision to invest in an emergency generator!

What Is A Backup Generator?

A backup generator is a device that ensures electricity in your home in case of a power outage. It is not a substitute for your primary unit but a backup generator in case something goes wrong.

These devices are used infrequently however, they are still extremely critical once power outages strike. Backup generators are there to provide the electricity your home needs in case of an outage. To guarantee these devices can step up when needed, you will need to make sure they are periodically evaluated and receive maintenance.

Reasons To Invest In A Whole-Home Generator

Protect Food Supply

If your power goes out, then your refrigerator is completely pointless! Although you may be able to monitor the weather to be cautious of power outages, they are a spontaneous issue. When power outages strike you will be scrambling to secure the food in your fridge!

Food spoilage is one of the first issues you will face when losing power. Not only is it costly but when facing severe weather without access to groceries, it can be dangerous. Also, it is difficult to imagine a more frustrating feeling than returning from the store with groceries when suddenly your power goes out.

Keep Medical Equipment Safe

If your family members deal with severe medical conditions, then this reason is truly relevant. Once the power outages hit, electric-powered medical equipment will not be able to function at all!

Due to the spontaneity of power outages, you never know when the power will turn back on. This can be a very scary issue for you and your family. If this resonates with you, then it is critical to ensure that you have an emergency generator.

Ensure Comfortability

The growing digital age has made more of our amenities and entertainment electricity based. No power means no Wi-Fi access or smart devices.

However, comfort is deeper than just missing viral memes and what else is trending on the timeline. Prolonged periods of darkness and extreme temperatures inside the home can be extremely stressful!

Peace Of Mind

Would you leave your home without locking the door? Would you drive your vehicle without a seatbelt? How about going skydiving without a backup parachute?

If you answered no to these questions, which we hope you did, then seriously consider an emergency generator. Having the peace of mind that you and your family are safe is priceless!

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.
