Standby Electricity Generators
The best option in the event of a blackout is a backup generator. Backup generators keep your home and your family safe in the event of a prolonged electricity outage. In winter homes are at risk of flooding through either no power to the sump pump or frozen pipes. Forced air heating systems such as a gas furnaces, oil furnaces or propane furnaces will not work without power so the best solution for maintaining you and your families in comfort during a blackout is to install a backup generator.
Backup generators have improved significantly in recent years with the very latest models having the following features:
- Natural gas or propane
- Able to automatically start within seconds of a loss of power
- Supply power without any intervention required
- Shut down automatically when the power is restored
- Available in a range of sizes to power everything in your home or just the essentials (sump pump, freezer, heating system)
- Mobile Link – enables you to monitor your generator from a pc, tablet or cellphone
- Protects your home, even when you are away
