For most of us, a home without access to power feels foreign. As long as we pay the bill each month, we assume the lights will come on when we flip the switch; and most of the time, that’s exactly how homes work. Living in this great country affords us the luxury of power being a foregone conclusion.
However, it also means, most of us don’t have a backup plan for when that luxury is suddenly unavailable. Our lives are so firmly dependent on power, that even a few hours without it could result in anything ranging from minor annoyances to major health crises.
We understand investing in a ‘what-if’ may mean asking some families to stretch or divert finances to be able to do so. It’s tempting to decide that a home generator may not rise to the need of adding an extra financial burden right now. But, below are five reasons why you may want to reconsider.
But what happens if the AC unit is installed and ready, but there’s no power to run it?
If you live in an area where temperatures and humidity can quickly become oppressive, it’s important that you have a backup generator for your home.
Homes with small children or elderly adults are particularly reliant on dependable power. The ability to keep your home at comfortable temperatures is obviously preferred, but even more important are daily life factors that may include preparing formula, heating bottles, baby monitors, electric chair stair lifts, and more.
If there is anyone in your home who relies on medical equipment, then of course you probably already have a backup power system installed. However, have you truly considered all the medical equipment that may be in your home?
C-Pap machines, infrared saunas, jetted spas, dehumidifiers, and room air filters are all often medically necessary appliances, however even though they may be as critical to your physical wellness as other healthcare equipment, only one or two are officially considered ‘medical devices.’
Make sure you thoroughly assess your home for medical needs when deciding what kind of backup power supply you choose.
If you work from home or run a small business from your home, then your livelihood is directly connected to your access to power.
Not having plenty of power for your cell phone, desktop, or laptop computers, or any equipment relevant to your business for an extended amount of time could mean financial hardship, that is often difficult to recover from.
You owe it to yourself, to protect all your hard work. Don’t let a power outage undo your professional efforts.
Many of our home experiences are so automatic that we never take the time to consider how they work. Consider your garage door opener, your home security system, even your sprinkler systems as all power-dependent.
An emergency power outage can be incredibly stressful, and it’s often not until it happens that we realize the conveniences of our home are actually the bare necessities!
It’s true, most of us could survive for a few days without power. But at what cost?
Protect your home, your safety, and just as important, your sanity, by adding a backup generator to your lifestyle!
Typically when someone is conducting research on whether or not they should purchase a backup generator, they want to know how much it’s going to cost to purchase the generator and have it installed. When the question they should be asking is: What are the real costs...

"Mark Costis and the Generx team keep my whole house powered in case of city power outages. They have the greatest service and excellent products. With a full tank of propane (250 gallons) I can run my whole house for at least a week. Thanks Mark! A Generx Generator was a great investment!"
