Weather the Storm With A Whole House Generator

Posted on: January 22, 2015

When is the best time to prepare for a power outage that comes as a result of a bad storm? Bad storms and long-lasting power outages can happen anywhere. A whole house generator will help you fight back when your house goes off the grid.

What You Should Know About Generators

Generators range in size and price, depending on the size of your home and how much of it you want to power. Smaller, portable generators usually cost between $300 and $400 for a 3,250-watt model. A 10,000-watt model might run you about $1,200 and a standard whole-house generator could cost you around $5,000.

Why Are Generators Beneficial?

A lot can go wrong when the power goes out. Your heating or air conditioning systems won’t work, any medical supplies that require electricity to operate will be out of commission, pipes can burst and food in the refrigerator can spoil. Not to mention, you’ll have no TV, phone or computer service. With a generator, you’ll be able to run a few or all of the above electrical devices depending on the size of the machine you purchase.

It is important to consider the electrical devices in your home that are crucial, especially in the case of an emergency. Call on ABC Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electric and we’ll send one of our expert electricians to your home to help you choose the best generator for your needs.
