Theres no need to worry when you have a power outage if your home has automatic backup power. Because when you lose power from your power company, residential standby generators automatically switch over in seconds to return power to your home. An automobile accident, a utility company mistake, or a thunderstorm is all it takes to interrupt power from the electric company to your house and leave your family in the dark. Whens the last time that happened to you? Are you due for a power outage?
The House Was On fire
When I was a rising high school senior, our house caught fire when lightening struck the power panel on the back of our house. We were out during the storm and the house was fine when we got home except there was no electric power. It was still out when we went to bed that night. But someone yelling, The house is on fire, woke me up at 2 oclock in the morning! The house was on fire because when the power company restored power, it came through our damaged power panel and set the kitchen range on fire (the range had accidentally been left on). Thankfully, all of us were able to get out safely. A backup generator wouldnt have made a difference in this situation but it shows how vulnerable we are to electrical power problems and how dangerous electricity can be.
Where Are the Flashlights?
When your home is protected by backup power, theres no need to worry about searching for flashlights and batteries when your power goes out. With a whole home power generator connected directly to the power companies power panel, it automatically restores power to your whole home in seconds. But you can keep your flashlights and batteries on hand for camping trips and the like.
No Drop Cords Through Doors and Windows
You dont have to run drop cords through doors and window to get power anymore because backup generators are connected directly to your power companies power panel. Using drop cords like this can also be a fire hazard. Opening doors and window to run drop cords is also an open invitation to home intruders. Dont wake up in the middle of the night to noises in the house because a window was left open.
Save Your Money | Dont Throw Food Away
Theres nothing worse than having to throw away $100s in food that thawed during a power outage. Sure, you can cook some of it and save it for later if the power gets restored in time. But what if youre away on vacation when the power goes out? If youre away on vacation when the power goes out in your home, all of the food in your refrigerator and freezer will be ruined unless you have a standby generator that will kick in and restore power in seconds
Stay at Home During Power Outages
You dont have to leave to go stay in a hotel, with relatives, or friends if you lose power to your home. You can sit back, relax and enjoy a movie with your family when your automatic power generator takes over. Being able to stay home and save money on a hotel helps relieves anxiety. You also dont have to be concerned about your property because your power generator switched over so you could stay home.
