Getting stuck without power in your home is not only annoying but can be dangerous especially if it leaves you without heat in the winter or air conditioning in the summer. Luckily, standby generators can give you power even when your electricity is out. Keep reading to learn about the benefits of standby generators.
Let’s start with what standby generators are. Standby generators are a device that converts mechanical energy to electric energy or in simple terms, has a running motor and an alternator that creates electricity.
The first benefit of standby generators are they provide power automatically. This means as soon as your power goes out, your standby generator will turn on. This is especially convenient if you are not home during the power outage as you will not come home to a fridge full of warm food, but rather a similar situation as if you had power.
The second benefit of standby generators are they can power as much as you need. In the past, a generator could maybe only power your fridge and a few other appliances, but nowadays a generator can run everything you need including appliances, lights, and even an electric hot water heater.
