Florida’s dangerous spring and summer weather provides many days each year that a backup generator would come in handy. Like much of the Deep South, the state experiences frequent thunderstorms, seasonal tropical storms and hurricanes. If you’ve ever experienced one of the storms that caused a power outage, you know a few reasons to buy a backup generator.

Top Reasons to Install a Backup Generator

In this blog, we’ll consider a comprehensive list that includes convenience and necessity among the reasons. While they may not all apply to your situation, many probably do.

  • 1
    A generator provides guaranteed uninterrupted electrical power for your home or business. Having a backup generator lets you avoid looking for flashlights, candles and matches, or other emergency lights.
  • 2
    Your groceries keep in the refrigerator as if the outage never happened. Food can spoil in as little as four hours. You also won’t have to worry about medications that need refrigeration.
  • 3
    Installing a backup generator enhances your security. The batteries on home security systems only last a few hours. Manufacturers don’t design for a three-day electrical outage caused by a hurricane.

    Ensure that needed medical devices continue to operate as needed. Installing an automatic standby generator means maintaining safety and addressing health needs.
