Most homeowners quickly learn that properly maintaining a home can often feel like a never-ending pull on the purse/pocket strings. And although there isn’t usually an easy way to avoid shelling out a few greenbacks here and there, smart homeowners understand the important distinction between home improvement costs and home improvement investments.
A home improvement cost might be adding shelving inside the garage. Convenient? Sure. Aesthetically pleasing? Absolutely! However, there’s no real expectation for shelving to save you much more than the time it takes to locate a stray tool… assuming you put it back where it belongs.
On the other hand, a home improvement investment is money well spent. Avoiding unnecessary repairs, lowering maintenance costs, even improving home values are just some of the ways a smart home investment benefits a homeowner long term.
A standby generator, whether you choose partial or whole home coverage, undoubtedly falls into the home investment category.
Here are just a few ways GenerX Generators may save you time, money, and more down the road.
Not all generators, or generator companies, are created equal. But a quality, professionally installed generator could offer up to 150% return on the initial investment.
While markets may vary, the addition of a standby generator can increase home resale values by 3%-5%.
When we lose power some of the unexpected costs could include:
A home or business that relies on electricity for plumbing functions (toilets, sump pumps, sewer systems, etc.) may experience flooding, sewage back up, or limited use of basic hygienic functions.
Often times with flooding comes mold, and mold remediation is fairly synonymous with aggravation and bank account debits.
And while Floridians aren’t typically concerned about freezing temperatures, stranger things have happened, and frozen pipes will certainly put a damper on a sunny disposition.
We’ve all seen sitcoms that show families trying hurriedly to eat all the food in the fridge before it melts, defrosts, or spoils; in TV land it’s all for giggles. But in real life, some foods begin degrading within minutes of rising above the recommended food safety temperature, and for those on dietary restrictions or experiencing financial constraints this loss is no laughing matter.
Damage to equipment.
Commercial buildings often run or service equipment that depends on continuous power for safe use. A sudden, prolonged loss of power could result in costly damages to equipment.
Temporary Housing Costs
When our homes don’t have power, seeking temporary housing is often the first line of refuge.
A night or two away from home may feel like a fun getaway, but spend several days in hotel housing and the costs can begin to skyrocket.
Protection Against Loss of Income
Being able to access work or continue to provide products/services to your customer protects your family’s bottom line.
Peace of Mind
Ultimately, the biggest value add of a GenerX standby generator is immeasurable.
Safety, comfort, convenience, and the peace of mind in knowing that your home or business will continue to operate as needed in the event of an emergency, is priceless.
In Central Florida, especially, the ultimate answer to the question of whether you should get a portable or standby generator is a resounding “Yes!” And though we’re obviously partial to standby generators, there are many factors to consider when choosing between a...
