Backup Generators: Why You Need One

Minimal Down Time

If you experience a power outage, you’ll find that there is minimal downtime between when the power goes out and when the generator comes on. A generator isn’t incredibly useful if the power goes out. Then you have to wait for an hour for the generator to come on. You want something easy, efficient, and perfect to maintain home and business operations.

Prevents Food from Going Bad

Have you ever had to keep cold food in a refrigerator or multiple refrigerators? If you’re a restaurant, you likely have a whole walk-in fridge and freezer full of food. In the event of a power outage, you don’t want to throw away hundreds or even thousands of dollars of food. A backup generator will keep your food fresh and ready to eat!

Keeps Well Water Running

To maintain running water on your property if you rely on a well, you must have a well pump. If your power goes out, your well pump won’t pump water, leaving you without running water. All you have to do is hook up your well pump to your generator and you will be back in business in no time at all.

Continued Business Operations

When there is a power outage, business owners lose profits and have to continue paying their employees. An hour of unproductive pay and ceased operations can have a surprisingly large impact. You would lose less money because you will be able to resume business operations within minutes of turning on the generator.

 

Prevents Interruptions to Security Systems

In the event of a power outage, the last thing you want to see is looting. In addition to other criminal activity taking place on your property because of a lack of security. It will be less likely for looters to target your business if you have a security system that can be turned into a generator.
