How a Generator Protects You in an Emergency


When the power in your area goes out completely and the neighborhood goes dark, it can be a huge reassurance to know that your home is going to keep functioning. Why? Because you have one of the professionally installed whole-house generators in Raleigh, NC.

If you don’t already have a whole-house generator installed as a part of your home and you want the peace of mind that comes with one, we’d love to tell you more about these systems. Even better, you can come to us for installation and other services to keep your generator reliable for years to come.

The Difference a Whole-House Generator Makes

Maybe you have a portable generator already that you swear by. Maybe you don’t have a generator at all and you really aren’t sure if you need to invest in one. We can promise you that investing in a whole-house generator makes a world of difference for your safety and convenience when the unexpected happens at the worst possible time.

Whole-house generators are fully connected to your home and to a natural gas line. This allows them to create energy in an efficient and eco-friendly manner when the lights go out. What’s more, because they are connected to your home, a whole-house system detects a problem with the power supply and turns on automatically. This circumvents all the hassle of digging out, setting up, and refilling that portable generator that is in your basement.

Oh, on top of all this, a whole-house generator can offer you far more power than a portable system. Rather than just getting the lights turned back on, you can enjoy keeping the lights, your HVAC system, the fridge, and other vital parts of the home running. Even better, you can enjoy this restored level of power for days rather than hours.

How a Generator Keeps You Safe

So with all that information on hand, you may still be wondering how exactly a generator keeps you safe. We can give you a few ways that this whole-house system knocks safety out of the park:

  1. Your security lights/cameras are still going to be operational.
  2. You and your loved ones are less likely to get hurt in a well-lit home.
  3. No need to risk harm when digging out a portable generator that may have gotten buried over time.
  4. No risk of gas fumes in your house.
  5. Vital electrical appliances like your fridge and HVAC system are kept running.
  6. You can keep landline phones operational or charge cellphones to use in case of emergencies.

As you can see, investing in the installation of a whole-house generator can be well worth the time and cash. A whole-house system will keep you safer, allow you to continue your daily life almost as per usual, and will circumvent a lot of the hassles that come with a portable system.
