If you are not prepared, power failures can be a real pain—and extremely dangerous. Blackouts can disable heating and air-conditioning systems, freezers, refrigerators, water pumps and lighting. If the power outage lasts for any length of time, your home can become uncomfortable and possibly uninhabitable: Your water pipes may freeze and burst, the food in your freezer may thaw and spoil, or your sump pump may fail, flooding your basement. Any of these events can quickly become expensive. If a blizzard blocks roads and you’re snowed-in during subzero temperatures, grid failure can even be life-threatening.
To eliminate the troubles of a long-term power outage, an immediate solution is to invest in a backup generator, usually powered by a conventional internal combustion engine. Most people really appreciate the benefits of a generator only after they have experienced lengthy power outages without one. However, call us before the trouble starts this year because generators sell out quickly before and during emergencies.

The two main types of residential generators are portable and permanent standby. If you plan to power a few lights, your refrigerator and a furnace, a less expensive portable generator may provide enough power. If you intend to run your lights and furnace—along with a well pump, a freezer and other major appliances—you will need a permanent standby model… learn more about selecting a generator.
