- Generator, Power Outage, Summer Storm
We live in an area that is susceptible to some violent spring and summer storms. Lightning, strong winds and driving rain are all common in Windsor-Essex & Chatham-Kent and it’s not unusual for the power to go out as a result. Losing power is more than just an inconvenience, it can cause major damage to your home and could compromise safety. To ensure that you always have backup power when you need it, invest in a standby generator.
Refrigerator and Freezer Thaws
Many homeowners buy in bulk to save on grocery expenses and store extra food in chest freezers. A power outage can cause refrigerators and freezers to stop working, and during the summer heat, it only takes a little time before food spoils. With a standby generator, critical appliances in your home can be supplied with power in as little as 10 seconds.
Often, a spring or summer storm brings heavy rains, which carries the risk of flooded basements. Many Windsor-Essex & Chatham-Kent residents have sump-pumps, but if the power goes out, flood waters can spill into people’s homes. A standby generator can provide the critical power needed to keep your home dry and safe during the next power outage.
Home Systems Stop Working
Home comfort systems like air conditioners, dehumidifiers and air purification systems all rely on power to operate. Additionally, home security systems and other home smart technologies need constant access to electricity to work. While some systems might have a built-in power back-up, an extended power outage could leave you without the equipment and appliances to keep your home comfortable and safe.
Prepare for the next storm by ensuring that you’ll always have access to power in your home. Fahrhall Home Comfort Specialists installs and services all makes and models of standby generators and is the Windsor-Essex & Chatham-Kent local Kohler dealer. Learn more about generators here!
