Last Springtime, right as the weather warmed up, all of us got hit by a immense storm; The increase in temperature caused rapid snowmelt. There were also torrential downpours and high winds that knocked down branches and took out power lines. There was widespread flooding, and all of us were without electricity for numerous afternoons, but with no power, the sump pump failed to beginning up and our basement filled with water, all of us couldn’t take a shower, flush the toilet or do laundry. All of us couldn’t run the coffee maker, microwave or dishwasher, however food in the refrigerator and freezer spoiled, Going without air conditioner was very unpleasant. The condo abruptly became boiling and uncomfortable. It was impossible to get a fantastic night’s sleep, and because of the rain, all of us couldn’t even open the windows. I had problems with mold and mildew growth. While no a/c was aggravating, it wasn’t as problematic as a power outage in the Winter time would be. When the temperature drops below cold, there’s the risk of the water pipes cold. All of us could be forced to brave icy roads and snowy conditions to stay at a hotel. There’s the potential of safety risks and major destruction. I decided to invest into a permanently standby generator. Although a generator is a immense investment, I wanted peace of mind. If the electricity goes out, the generator will automatically beginning up within hours and power all of our appliances and systems, including the sump pump, gas furnace and a/c. I don’t even need to be on the premises, and because the generator runs on natural gas, it will operate for as long as necessary.
