An unexpected power outage can be more than just unpleasant. It can cost you time and money. It can ruin a day – or more – and even damage some of your electrical appliances and parts of your home.

It’s time to ask yourself how ready you are to face this inconvenience or if you should consider using a type of home energy management at all.

Here, at Ohio Generator Systems, we believe we should always start with the “why?”. It is the first and the most important question you have to ask yourself when it comes to installing and using a home backup generator.

This is why we’ll give you the main reasons why you need to consider equipping your home with one seriously.

1. Your family’s comfort untouched

Electricity in itself is a source of comfort you can’t imagine your life without. It simply makes your life easier in so many ways. A backup home generator can give you that peace of mind in case the power goes out. You and your family can relax and continue to enjoy the comfort of your home while your backup generator automatically takes over.

2. Your home security is maintained.

A severe power outage will force you to check into a hotel or a friend for an undetermined period in many cases. That means extra costs and the risk your home will be the target of looters. A home backup power generator will help you hold your ground and keep your turf safe.

3. Your food is preserved.

When you experience a power outage for more than a few hours, the food in your fridge will more likely start to spoil. The meat, the eggs, and the milk will be the first. Keeping the refrigerator on won’t be a problem when you use a home backup generator. You’ll not even have to think about it.

4. Your HVAC system is kept on.

Your home heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning system (HVAC) will continue to function after a severe power outage maintaining the optimal temperature inside your house for as long as needed. You’ll stay cool!

5. Your sump pump is always ready.

Flooding is ugly. The damage water can cause when entering your home should be avoided at any cost. Thanks to a well-functioning home energy management system that will keep your sump pump on, you’ll be able to avoid the inconvenience and the redecorating cost.

6. Your pipes are kept intact in the cold season.

When a power outage hits during the winter, you’d better be sure they won’t get below the freezing point. If they do, they will more likely break and burst, leaving you with extra repairs and plumbing expenses.

7. Your medical equipment is fully operational.

More people using some electric medical equipment at home – CPAP machines, oxygen concentrators, dialysis machines, etc. Most of these machines use some battery backup, but a backup generator is the solution in an extended power outage. No human intervention is needed.

One last thing. According to the Congressional Research Service (CRS), up to 50% of the significant power outages are caused by severe weather conditions such as lightning, wind, and heavy rain. The surprising fact is that the next highest cause of significant outages is equipment failure.
