Power outages at your Rochester home are always an inconvenience. But while a short power outage can be an annoyance, a long-term outage that lasts several hours or days can endanger your house and its inhabitants. When severe storms or rolling blackouts disable power to your neighborhood, a standby generator will protect your home and keep your family’s daily life on track.
When your power goes out for hours or days, it is more than just the lights that go out. Your air conditioner will stop working, and the longer it is off, the higher the temperature and humidity levels can climb. If you have an electric furnace, your heater will cease to function as well. In extremely cold winters, a lack of heat can lead to frozen pipes and other problems.
Your home security system cannot work without power, and neither can your outdoor motion detector lights or your garage door opener. Modems and cable boxes will cease to work, as will cable telephones. The food in your refrigerator will start to spoil not long after the power goes out. If you have a sump pump in your basement, it will not work, which may cause flooding.
By installing a standby generator, however, you can ensure that none of this will happen. Today’s standby power generators are more affordable than ever before and can be installed in mere hours. They run on propane or natural gas and have low emissions, making them environmentally friendly. They’re also quiet and can be installed out of view behind your house.
A standby generator is permanently installed and becomes part of your house’s electrical system. It turns on automatically when the power goes out. Standby generators are much more convenient than portable generators—you won’t have to locate them in the dark, fill them with fuel and plug them in.
