One of the most disconcerting and inconvenient situations homeowners in Edgewater, Maryland, face is a power outage. When you install a home generator system, your family won’t face long and dark nights again.
When the power goes out, a home generator will bring back the comforts of home in the blink of an eye. You’ll enjoy the quick restoration of your creature comforts, including the TV, computer, water heater and heating system.
Not only will your family be comfortable but it’ll stay safe. Home generators protect your family during extended blackouts by deterring crime.
Home generators are also safer than gasoline backup generators, since they run on propane or natural gas and sit outdoors. There’s much less risk of carbon monoxide exposure with home systems than with portable ones.
When the power does return, home generators prevent voltage fluctuations and power surges from damaging your home’s electric system. This lowers your risk for fires or short circuits.
No Food Spoilage
When your electricity goes out, you can lose all the food in your fridge and freezer. If it takes a while to restore power, you could be throwing out a lot of food and spending wads of cash to replace it.
Lower Risk of Water Damage
If there’s a sump pump in your basement or crawl space that keeps that area dry, you could face significant problems during a lengthy power outage. Also, wintry weather like ice storms can take out electricity for days. During these times, pipes can freeze and break, causing extensive damage throughout your home.
If you have a home generator, you’ll never have to worry about your family struggling through a power outage in the cold again. With winter quickly approaching, now’s the time to start thinking about one.
