You can avoid the frustration that power outages cause with your own whole home backup generator.
Pros of installing a whole home backup generator include:
- Peace of mind. Having a backup generator allows you to rest assured that the lights won’t stay off for long. These units offer immediate backup power when an outage occurs.
- Protecting perishables, electronics, and other conveniences. With a backup generator, you won’t have to worry about the food in your fridge going bad or your phone running out of charge.
- Protecting medical equipment and vulnerable family members. Children, the elderly, and people with health conditions may rely on electricity to keep medical equipment running and indoor temperatures at safe levels. A backup generator is essential in these situations.
- Preventing power surges. Because they offer a continuous current, whole home backup generators are safe options for homes and businesses alike.

How to Protect Your Home During Power Outages
Did you know that power outages cost Americans $150,000,000,000 every year? That’s $500 for every man, woman, and child in the country. How can you prepare your family in case of a power emergency?
Follow these steps to keep your home and family safe when the power goes out:
- Install a backup generator. Whole-home backup generators provide power to your entire home and are the first and best option to protect your home and family in an emergency. They are generally straightforward to install, and with financing plans and offered rebates are more affordable than ever.
- Get a whole-home surge protector. There’s no need for a surge protector for every outlet when you have a whole-home surge protector. The whole-home protector also protects your appliances, air conditioner, water heater, and other integrated equipment.
- Prepare a disaster kit. A disaster kit should at minimum come with a first aid kit, a gallon of water per person, a 3-day supply of food and baby supplies, pet food, battery-powered radio, flashlight with batteries, duct tape, garbage bags, small screwdrivers, pliers, and wrenches, a manual can opener, extra cell phone chargers, and battery backup.
- Switch off electronics. Even with a surge protector it’s a good idea to unplug intricate electronics that may be damaged when power resumes.
- Plan for water problems. In addition to storing a decent supply drinking water, prepare for water to be expensive or difficult to find during an extreme emergency. If possible, fill bathtubs with water and have buckets available to pour water into toilet tanks for flushing. Consider buying a portable travel/camping toilet or composting toilet.
