When Winter Storms Knock Out Your Power, A Standby Generator Keeps You Up And Running

Here in southeastern Michigan, we experience some unsettled weather during the summer months, and violent thunderstorms occur with enough frequency that extended power outages are a very real possibility. A power outage can seriously compromise your family’s comfort and security, and it can also cost you a lot of money. Protecting yourself by installing a standby generator is a wise idea that can also raise the resale value of your home.

A standby generator is a permanently-installed supplemental power source which runs on natural gas or liquid propane and automatically activates in the event that your home becomes disconnected from the power grid. This ensures that you will enjoy an uninterrupted supply of electricity, even if the power is out for hours or days after a major storm or other calamity.

With a standby generator, you can continue to run your home’s air conditioner, ensuring your indoor comfort even if the power is out for a long time. Your home security system will also remain operational, which can protect you against thieves and looters, who tend to take advantage of situations like power outages because their chances of getting caught are reduced. Also, your refrigerator and freezer will continue to function, which could potentially save you hundreds of dollars in food spoilage expenses.

Most importantly, though, is the value that a standby generator adds to your home. Experts warn that in the coming years, the traditional power grid will have a harder and harder time keeping up with consumer demand. Homes that have additional backup power sources will become more and more attractive to buyers. In fact, the investment you make in a generator may even pay for itself in the form of an increase in your home’s resale value.
