It Might Be Time to Replace That Generator

Weather events are getting more erratic and record-breaking each and every day. From flooding events to heatwaves, our power grid is being strained beyond what it would normally endure. This can lead to power outages during the worst moments possible for a family.

A generator is a great tool to have for a number of different reasons. Perhaps someone works from home and they require power to provide for their family, even if the grid goes down. Or, maybe in the event of a power outage, people still want to feel safe and secure in their home. A generator will help reach these goals, as long as it’s in good shape.

For customers who have recently had their generator ruined, either due to weather events or just old age, now might be the perfect time to finally invest in a new generator installation in Scarsdale, NY. A new system, set up by professionals and maintained properly, could last well into the foreseeable future.

Generators Don’t Last Forever

A generator might seem like it can continue running after a decade or more, but really they’ll start to malfunction and become a hazard for the entire family. Especially for customers who rely on their generators to power their homes during a unique weather event, this can be a disaster to find out that the system is old and outdated.

This is a great reason to invest in a new and improved generator. Old generators are less efficient and powerful than newer ones, meaning a replacement can be a great investment for a number of different reasons.

Upgrade From a Portable Generator

Portable generators are not very good for homes. They’re great for outdoor events like sports games and wedding DJs, but they’re not particularly powerful for a home’s lights, electric appliances, and devices. This is the job for a whole-house, natural gas powered generator, which our team can install.

Homeowners should also think about upgrading their generator technology, since power fluctuations from weather events are likely to become more common in the future. Homeowners can better protect their families and their way of life with the help of a sleek, powerful whole-home generator system.

Weather Events Require New Solutions

Old portable generators just might not cut it due to newfound weather events and record-breaking heatwaves. These systems are not designed to deal with torrential downpours, flooding, or direct sunlight in heat that’s over a hundred degrees. They can easily run into problems and fall into disrepair if homeowners aren’t careful.

Whole-house generators that are installed by professionals are not like this. They’re usually set upon a concrete slab which is elevated above the ground on the highest point of the property so they can’t be undermined with flooding. They can be set up with proper shielding from the sun on the hottest days of the year, and they also run via underground lines of natural gas which don’t get heated up as easily. Homeowners can feel safe knowing they’re protected with one of these state-of-the-art generators.
