Sure, winter may be on its way out. But even with spring only a mere week away, it’s never too late—or too early—to think about preparing your home for the worst case scenarios. Although mass power outages may not be a frequent occurrence, the fact of the matter is that they do happen.
And when they happen in the middle of one of the coldest days of the year, during a severe winter storm, you do not want to be stuck without the power to use your heater and other important appliances and home devices. There’s never a bad time to consider the purchase and installation of a Needham, MA automatic standby generator.
The Benefits of an Automatic Standby Generator
A professionally installed backup generator gives you the peace of mind that if you ever need a backup source of power, you’ll have it. Not only can power interruptions be inconvenient, they can also be dangerous—this is something to consider with how much we rely on our heating systems during the winter (even gas powered systems have an electric igniter that enables them to start up.)
Additionally, if you have any family members that rely on electronically powered medical devices, the lack of power can be a life-or-death scenario for them—one that can be avoided with the right backup source. An automatic standby generator gives you and your family:
- Quick delivery of power during a blackout.
- Full operation of your home, from your heating and cooling systems and home safety devices to your televisions and computers.
- Maintained comfort and safety during emergency situations.
- Protection from potential hazardous voltage fluctuations and surges when the power returns.
- The peace of mind that you and your loved ones will remain safe during an emergency.
Factors to Consider
There are a number of cities and communities that have noise ordinances which may restrict the installation of certain generators. In addition, many building codes—particularly in multi-family communities such as a condo association—have specific restrictions and specifications when it comes to their installation.
Therefore, it’s important to only invest in professional installation when it comes to purchasing one of these devices. Another reason professional installation is important is due to the logistics of doing so. For example, if you’re planning on connecting to your local natural gas system, then you need a professional with the training and knowledge to complete the job safely and accurately.
