The generator supplies power for as long as necessary, keeping essential appliances operational
Living in the northeastern part of the country, the winter weather is a huge challenge every single year. We expect at least six months of below freezing temperatures and aren’t surprised by negative digits. Our annual snow accumulation is approximately twelve feet and the wind chill is often dangerous. We rely heavily on the furnace and the heating system is responsible for long and brutal workload. There are frequent school closings, driving bans and blizzard conditions. One of the biggest problems is power outages. The snow, ice and high winds are tough on electric lines. When there’s no electricity, we have no access to running water, lights, internet and heating. Going without heat isn’t really an option. With sub zero temperatures outside, the house gets chilly really quickly. There’s the danger of water pipes freezing and bursting. It’s not always feasible to jump in the car and head to a hotel. To make sure my family is safe, warm and comfortable, I’ve invested in a permanently installed backup generator. The generator was a considerable expense but definitely worth it. If there’s an interruption in power, the generator automatically starts up and takes over. I don’t even need to be on the premises. Because it runs on natural gas, there’s no need for refueling. The generator supplies power for as long as necessary, keeping essential appliances operational. We’re able to rely on the furnace, water heater, sump pump and avoid inconvenience and damage. If there’s a power failure during the summer, we can still use the air conditioner, dehumidifier and refrigerator.
