A power outage whether caused by a storm or another emergency can be a mere inconvenience, cause damage to your property or even in some situations become life-threatening. One way to prepare your home for power outages is to seek the help of a professional like WK Mechanical and install an automatic standby generator for some added peace of mind. There are many factors to consider when it comes to installing a generator, so it makes sense to consult the help of a knowledgeable technician. We can help you determine the type and size of the generator you need, how much your home’s electrical system will be able to handle, as well as how much of your home you would like the generator to power.

There are several advantages to installing an Automatic Standby Generator, below are our top 10 reasons to consider installing a generator at your home or business:

  1. You won’t have to think in emergencies, your new generator will kick on within seconds of a power outage.
  2. Generators can be sized to suit your needs. They can provide power to your entire home or a few key spaces such as the kitchen, bathroom, and home office.
  3. If you have a sump pump in your basement when the power goes out, your generator will kick on and keep your basement dry!
  4. You can stop having to throw out food after the power has been out because your generator will keep your refrigerator running.
  5. Any well pump or water filtration system will continue to provide your family with clean, safe, running water during a power outage when it is hooked up to a generator.
  6. You can worry less about any family members who need medical equipment that run on electricity. A generator keeps the power going!
  7. If you work from home, you will be able to continue working because your generator will keep the power flowing to your lights and computers.
