If you have ever found yourself waking up and realizing you have no power, you know what a nightmare life can quickly become. The first thing that most people do is to call the power company to see what the problem is and what amount of time it will take for the power to be back up. If you have ever heard that it might take a few days, you know that by then you are in big trouble. There are several ways that a power outage can happen and keep you in the dark. One of the causes of a major power outage is a storm. When a hurricane, tornado or other severe weather runs through your area it can knock down major power lines that are bringing the power to your home. One of the best ways that you can keep yourself out of trouble when there is a power outage is to have a generator ready to go.
Burley Electrical Services, Inc has prepared a quick outline as to why a generator is worth the initial cost:
– Let’s start and end with saving money! Did you know that instituting safety measures in your home could actually lower your insurance premium? It’s true! Burley Electrical Services, Inc recommends you talk to your insurance agent or rep to find out if you can save money by doing things like making your home more windstorm-resistant (such as adding storm shutters), increasing your home security (installing smoke detectors, burglar alarms or dead-bolt locks) and finally by updating your plumbing and electrical systems (to reduce the risk of water and fire damage). Installing a backup generator falls under this last money-saving home improvement of updating your electrical system!
When you lose power at your home, the lights are out and you are not able to use anything that is plugged in. This includes home comforts that are often taken for granted such as your air conditioner or heater. This can make a home nearly unbearable to stay in – especially in the heat of summer or the dead cold of winter. You also lose all the luxuries that most people use to pass time like watching television and being able to play on computers (beyond the short battery life). There are also more necessary items that you start to miss out on, like charging your phone so you can contact people that you may need to. You also lose power to your refrigerator and freezer and that means that you will need to eat all the food quickly or it will start to go bad. You most likely will also lose the ability to do laundry, take hot showers and keep the house clean. There are many people that will leave a home that is powerless and pay to stay in a hotel or motel. If you take all of these factors into account and add up the cost of what you are out, it will quickly justify the cost of the generator and be so much more convenient too!
