    Why You Need a Whole Home Generator

    Generac Generators

    By Sherri Walbeck

    If you have ever lost power in your home, had the summer heat knock out your air conditioning system when you needed it most, or have ever had food spoil, electronics die, or your toilet ran out of flushes… then you will benefit from having a whole home generator system at your residence.

    1. The most important reason is to ensure a continuous and uninterrupted power supply during power outages.

    In a state known for scorching summers, it is important to keep your air conditioning systems running. Even during times of rolling blackouts, a whole home generator will protect your electrical appliances and prevent food from spoiling.

    But How does the generator keep power continuous?

    Home generators are connected to your home and supply power when electricity is out. The systems can tell when power is out and will immediately kick on and start providing power back into your home.

    1. Providing Security to homeowners.

    Severe weather events like hurricanes, tornados, and thunderstorms are not uncommon in Texas. But with a whole home generator families can feel confident.  Because they will have a backup power source even when the grid is down, and emergency services are stretched thin. Peace of mind can be invaluable especially when you have loved ones with medical conditions, requiring electrical support, or even those with young children.

    1. Protect your home’s value.

    During outages, many homes experience damage to sup pumps, frozen pipes, or flooding. A generator will minimize these risks as the sump pump will be able to continue running and prevent water damage. By avoiding costly repairs and reducing chances for property damage, generators help maintain the value of your home.

    1. Offers a sense of normalcy and convenience.

    Most people live in rural areas where power restoration can take longer thanks to logistical challenges. With a generator, your family can continue daily activities like cooking, studying, and working from home, even when the grid is down. This can help keep up with essential tasks, maintain productivity, and reduce stress and disruptions during outages.

    Well, what generator should I get?
