Homes and businesses have a growing dependence on power. Lives have become more interconnected than ever and people rely heavily on the devices allowing that connectivity. But one power outage can disrupt everything. Be prepared.
Benefits of Owning a Home Generator
- Confidence & comfort: A whole house generator system provides security and confidence that home life will continue uninterrupted, no matter the weather conditions outside.
- Avoid power outage costs: Standby generators prevent unexpected repair or losses that occur when a home sits without power, such as spoiled food, or even more significant - water damage from an unpowered sump pump.
- Lower homeowners insurance rate(s): Home generators keep a home humming. Insurers know that when your home's lights and security system are on, it's less likely that you'll be making a home theft claim, which can reduce your homeowners insurance rate.
- Increase your home value: Property values increase for homes with a standby generator system. A study by Remodeling Magazine showed standby generators increase home resale values by 52.7% of the cost of the generator system.
How a Home Generator System Works
A home generator system consists of two products: 1) a generator unit and 2) an automatic transfer switch. The two work in concert with your home to ensure when power is lost, it’s only for a matter of seconds before backup power kicks in. Both are professionally installed to your home’s existing wiring. Once the generator system senses utility power is back online, your home is automatically transferred back to utility power and the standby generator is shut down until the next time it's needed.
