Prepare Your House for Winter With a Whole-House Generator

Monmouth County Plumbing RepairsYou can't live in Ocean County, or any part of New Jersey, without dealing with winter weather. It can, at times, get pretty harsh, in fact. So, locals know, as the summer turns to fall, it is time to start thinking about and planning for cold and frigid conditions again, because it is going to happen whether you want it to or not.

While everyone knows to check weatherstripping and to schedule a heating tune-up like a furnace, not enough people realize the value of taking this opportunity to get a whole-house generator installed. One thing is for certain, make it through one blizzard without power and you will never live another day without a generator.

What's in it For You?

If you have not already added a whole-house generator to your residential dwelling, you probably are not aware of what you are missing. However, all you have to do is imagine making it through a winter storm with no power to get the gist of it.

There's no real way to predict a power outage, but you can be pretty sure that the more severe the storm, the higher the potential risk. That being said, it is important to have a reliable resource for backup power, when the need arises. Keep in mind, it is not a matter of if, it is a matter of when.

A whole-house generator is a better system because it automatically switches on when there is a disruption to your power supply. Standard generators can't do that. So, at best, once the storm subsides you would then be able to venture into the cold to hook up and start your generator. That is, if you can even get outside to do so.

Obviously, this is about comfort – no one wants to wait out a snow storm in the cold. However, frigid temperatures are not just discomfort, they can be detrimental to your health. This is especially true for children, seniors, pets and anyone with compromised health.

If anyone in your household relies on in-home medical equipment, having backup power could be a matter of life or death. Examples include oxygen machines or CPAP machines. Don't put yourself or a loved one's health at greater risk by possibly losing power that fuels their medical devices.

It's not about being panicked, it is about being aware. Your entire home could keep your power during the most severe winter storms, all thanks to your whole-house generator.
