Home Generators

Recent reports from Carnegie Mellon find that U.S. homes average 214 minutes of power outages every year. In just the past ten years, some Northeast Ohio residents experienced days without power due to Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy. High winds due to storms and ice, blown transformers and overworked circuits lead to inevitable losses of power in our area.

Let’s face it. In this day and age, a few candles and a gas lamp just doesn't cut it when you have a power outage. If your power goes out for even an hour, the disruption of your life is more than just the lights. Home generators are suggested back up electrical systems to work as your home’s instant “plan b” power source. Regain control over feeling helpless when your power goes out and keep your valuable possessions out of harm. With a home generator, you won’t have to worry about food spoiling in your refrigerator and deep chest freezer, the pipes freezing and bursting or the sump pump not working causing interior flooding. With the progression of technology, the latest generators are more energy efficient than previous models, not to mention run far more quietly.

Instead of relying on individual battery backups for each home appliance, a single home generator can be used to run:
  • Electric Heaters
  • Electric Ranges
  • Electric Water Heaters
  • Electric Washers And Dryers
  • Furnace Fans
  • Heat Pumps
  • Well & Sump Pumps
  • Septic Pumps
  • Freezers

And for extended power outages when you can’t help but miss your everyday luxuries, today’s generators can power all of the above and still run:
  • Computers and Printers
  • Hot Tubs
  • Microwaves
  • Computers
  • Home TV and Surround Sound
  • Exercise Equipment
  • and More…

In addition to wattage, you will also need to consider the quality of the power and the safety of the unit.
