Benefits Of A Backup Generator

Purchasing a backup generator for your home is a smart decision that will provide many benefits. During a power outage, having a power source at hand ensures that your home remains functional and comfortable without interruptions. Unlike those who don’t have an alternative power source, you can go about your day as normal instead of having to wait for the electricity to come back on. Here are a few key benefits:

  • Access to Fresh Food: With a backup generator, you can prevent food from spoiling during a power outage.
  • Climate Control: You can keep your house at a comfortable temperature regardless of the weather conditions.
  • Device and Appliance Use: Like your refrigerator, you can still use all your lighting, appliances, and electronics and keep your priorities intact.
  • Increased Home Value: Adding a backup generator to your home can increase its value.

What to Consider When Buying a Generator

Are you unsure how much power you need for your home during a power outage? On average, a home requires around 5,000 watts of power, while a backup generator typically provides 5,000 to 25,000 watts.

To select the right generator, consider your peak electrical usage, continuous wattage, and whether to choose an air-cooled or liquid-cooled model. Our technicians at Reliable Power Systems can help you assess your home’s specific power needs to assist you in your decision.
