Home Generator installation and maintenance from experts in Morris, Essex, Somerset, and Union Counties

In New Jersey, a power outage can happen any time of year. In the summer, the electricity may go out because of an excess of air conditioners running, while in the winter a bad storm can cause the power lines to go awry. Even spring and autumn storms have brought multi-day power outages across the state. With a whole house backup generator, you’ll never have to worry about the power going out again. When the electricity stops working, you’ve got the backup you need.

What is a backup generator?

If your power goes out for any reason – electrical grid problem, severe storm, or serious weather issues – a backup generator kicks in automatically to deliver power directly to your home’s electrical system. You can choose to back-up your entire home or just essential parts, such as a kitchen and your bedrooms. Generators live outside, much like a central A/C system. They run on natural gas or liquid propane fuel.

Benefits of a backup generator

For many people, having a backup home generator is a crucial part of their home. It provides the secure feeling they need. Some of the main benefits include:

  • Efficiency – Generators are efficient because they run on natural gas or LP fuel. They provide power to your home as long as they are fueled.
  • Cost-savings – When the power goes out, you may lose hundreds of dollars worth of food in your home if your refrigerator and freezer stop functioning. You might find yourself running out to buy flashlights and other essential items, costing you money you wouldn’t have to spend if you had a generator.
  • Emergency protection – If your power goes during a State of Emergency, you can feel protected by your generator. This is particularly essential during the winter, when it might be freezing temperatures outside. You and your family can stay safe indoors with a home heated (or cooled) by your generator.
  • Family protection – If there is a major power outage, you can help protect your friends and family who do not have backup generators by providing shelter in emergency situations. You never know when there will be another Super Storm Sandy or other natural disaster.
  • Home value increase – Anyone who has lived in New Jersey probably fears the inconvenience and danger of a power outage. When you go to sell your home, and it has a backup generator, you are increasing the value of your home and making it more attractive to sellers.
