The Benefits of a Generator

Blustery winds, heavy rain, and fragile tree limbs swaying only mean one thing: there’s inclement weather on the rise — and a strong possibility that your home may lose power. Of course, there is the potential of gaining your electricity back within minutes — but it’s always best to have a backup plan, such as a generator. Not sure why your home should have one? Let us explain:

Ensures Power in a Blackout

When you’re stuck inside your home, due to dangerous weather conditions, the last thing you’d like to have is no power at all. Sure, this is completely out of your control (since you aren’t licensed to climb your powerlines and fix the problem) — and it then turns into a “waiting game” of when you’ll get your electricity back.

Before lighting your fireplace and every candle in sight, there is a surefire way to bring your power back — and that’s with the help of a generator. Nine out of ten times, most homeowners overlook this essential investment, which then leads them to use matches (nothing wrong with that, of course). However, a generator will bring your home back to “life” within minutes.

Convenient to Use

Unlike a traditional gas generator, a Generac generator from Blanton’s Air, Plumbing, & Electric will be the most convenient generator to use. When a Generac is installed at your home, this standby generator will run solely on natural gas or liquid propane — which means that you’ll never have to stock up on gasoline to keep it running.

Additionally, a standby Generac generator turns on the minute your home loses electricity — and then quickly shuts off and re-enters standby mode when your utility power is restored. This is the perfect way to not only have power when you need it the most, but it’s also a great way to have an efficient generator at your home — without using an excessive amount of unnecessary energy.

Keeps your Home Running

Certainly, when you have a generator, its sole purpose is to ensure that you have electricity when your home is in the dark. However, when you have a Generac generator installed by Blanton’s Air, Plumbing, & Electric, this powerful machine will keep your home running — without any issues.

Sometimes, homeowners will opt to use a gas generator — which they’ll have to trek outside, in dangerous conditions, to attempt to power their entire home in a matter of minutes. As mentioned earlier, our Generac generators are the perfect solution to keep your home running, which include important features such as your refrigerator, stove (if it’s electric), keeping your cellphones charged, and so much more.

Provides Peace of Mind

One of the best feelings any homeowner could hope for is peace of mind. Certainly, that can range from having a new cooling system installed to a toilet being replaced. However, one of the best forms of this calming reassuring feeling? You guessed it: having a Generac generator installed.

Of course, some homeowners do fear that this unit will take up a large piece of “real estate” on their property — but that couldn’t be further from the truth. When you have a standby home generator installed, the unit will take up no more room than the hub of your cooling unit. Additionally, a Generac generator from Blanton’s Air, Plumbing, & Electric will be placed alongside your home, perfectly positioned, so that it won’t be an “eyesore” to you and your neighbors.

Wards Away Danger

When you tend to leave your home at night, to run errands, you’ll typically leave the lights on in your living room — or any window that’s facing the streets. This, of course, will give the appearance that your home is occupied and will ward away any trespassers from attempting to break in.

Although a generator is typically thought of as the unit for inclement weather discrepancies, a Generac generator pulls through at all times when your home loses power. Not only will this unit keep the lights on — but it will do it without missing a beat. The power in your neighborhood could be out, but with this generator, your home won’t lose power for one minute — which will keep your home and family out of harm’s way.
