How Do Generators Work? - Generac
Being prepared provides "Peace of Mind".
Don't wait until your home or business is without power to decide to install an emergency backup system. Going without power for a length of time can be extremely inconvenient and dangerous. An emergency backup system is one of the most important upgrades you can install on your home or business.
We are a Generac authorized provider with many years experience in the emergency backup power industry. ECI Electric, LLC provides a "FREE" in home consultation to assess your property and tell you exactly what generator would best meet your needs to ensure you're never left in the dark.
Are you considering adding a back-up generator to your home? You can’t place a monetary value on the peace of mind that comes from knowing your home’s systems will keep working no matter what snow, storm, wind, tornado, or other power outage situation hits your neighborhood. 87% of power outages are caused by severe weather and cost American households $150 billion annually. Consider this; a generator is an investment in your home, your family’s safety, and your comfort. Make a smart investment today and you can save some serious dollars by adding a whole house generator to your property.
Increased Home Value
Today’s house shoppers are looking for properties that are not only attractive and comfortable, but safe and practical as well. With so many storms in the news these days, it’s no wonder that back-up generators are growing in popularity. A whole house generator increases your home value up to 5%, according to Consumer Reports, and according to a 2014 report by Remodeling Magazine, installing a back-up generator can provide a 150% return on your investment. So, if you spent $12,000 on installing a generator, for example, you can expect a home value increase up to $18,000.
Many insurers reward homeowners for taking the precaution of installing a back-up generator to their home. It makes sense: if your home’s valuable systems and appliances, such as sump pumps, pool pumps, furnaces, central air conditioning units, dehumidifiers, and refrigerators continue to operate in the event of a power outage, you’ll be protecting your property from severe damage—and the insurance claims that can come with it.
Most insurers offer a discount of around 5% on the property portion of a homeowner’s policy with proof of a whole house generator permanently installed by a licensed professional. Depending on where you live, discounts can even reach 10%.
Installing a whole house generator will not only bring security to your home, but value and savings as well—as long as the installation is performed by professionals. Call ECI Electric, LLC today to learn more about installing a whole house generator.
Power outages are extremely inconvenient, interrupting the flow of the day and derailing the best-made plans. Even more, they can be expensive, potentially costing a family thousands. We know that all areas can be susceptible to power outages, so consider investing in a whole house generator to prevent the consequences of power loss.
Keep Your Fridge Running
When the power goes out, most people think about the refrigerator first. According to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, food can last up to four hours in a closed refrigerator and 48 hours in the freezer. All it takes is one bad storm to lose a significant portion of your family’s food supply. With a generator, you will not have to worry about losing food.
Keep Your Pool, Well, and Sump Pumps Going
A major storm can unleash a triple whammy of power loss, freeze and flooding. If these pumps go out of commission you may face major losses. With a whole house generator, you’ll know that these pumps will do their job no matter what.
With more people working from home these days or attending school online, power is a necessity. You can’t afford to miss an important virtual meeting. Even if you leave for work every day, a power outage can throw a major wrench in getting dressed, making breakfast, and gathering supplies as you prepare for your day. A home generator ensures that you don’t lose out on valuable hours of productivity.
Phones and laptops will only last so long before needing a charge. A power outage can mean a loss of communication with loved ones and the inability to follow important updates about conditions. Internet access, especially during an emergency, will be at a premium. A generator will keep your devices and routers running. And there’s nothing wrong with catching up on some Netflix while you’re waiting for things to get back to normal.
With home automation, electricity may power your security systems, locks, garage doors, and other equipment in the home. A weather emergency is not the time to get your car stuck in the garage, or worse, make your family and possessions vulnerable to intruders. With a home generator, all your automated systems will continue to work as intended—keeping your life running safely and smoothly.
