Reasons to Install A Whole-House Generator for Your Home


Whether you are building a new home or just upgrading your current home, the idea of a whole-home generator might seem appealing to you. That’s because it is appealing, and it’s a great idea. At Auchinachie Services, our team of professionals knows that a whole-house generator is something that many homeowners want, and we have the experience to provide that for you with ease. Building and remodeling are among the most exciting times in your life as a homeowner, and they will likely cause you a bit of stress along the way.

Installing a whole-home generator should not be the reason you are stressed out. We know that you need things to run as smoothly as possible, which is why we take care of everything down to the most minute details of the entire process. From determining which type of whole-home generator you want to figure out where you want it, how you want, and how much time you would like to spend on the project.

If you are still on the fence about a whole-home generator, it might be a good idea to consider some of the best reasons to have one installed. By the time you realize just how beneficial it is, you will be happy you had it put in and that you don’t have to worry about it anymore. Each reason is good enough on its own to consider a whole-home generator but put together, it’s hard not to see how beneficial having one can really be.

Power Without Power

This goes without saying, of course. When bad weather strikes – as it is prone to do – you don’t want to be left in the dark, literally. No power is no fun. When the power goes out, you have a whole-home generator to help you stay on track and able to go on with your day or night. This is priceless by itself. It means you won’t have to freeze at night in the winter, you won’t die of heat during the summer and you can still go about your day-to-day activities while everyone else is figuring out how to accomplish anything without any power.

It’s Automatic

The best part about a whole-home generator is that it does not need you to work. If the power goes out five minutes after you leave for work, a whole-home generator will kick on automatically and your house will remain functional and comfortable all day. This is especially important when the power is out for a long time and your food is sitting in your freezer or fridge going bad with each degree the temperature rises. You’ll never worry about coming home to a house that’s too hot or too cold ever again.

It’s Connected

One of the biggest benefits of a whole-home generator is the fact that it’s connected to your home’s electrical panel. This means you’re not required to go out and find extension cords and hook anything up when the weather is bad. You are able to sit back and relax knowing that your system is controlled through the house without anything on your plate.

It’s Cost-Effective

When the power goes out, it’s not just you that you have to worry about. It’s not you worried that you’re going to get too hot during the summer or too cold during the winter. It’s the need to worry about your food and other items in the fridge and freezer. A freezer stocked with meat and other food will go bad if the power is out long enough for these items to thaw and warm up – which we know can happen in a matter of only a few hours depending on the outside temperature. Ask yourself how much money it might cost you to replace all the meat and other foods you’ve been stocking up for years that are in that freezer?

Additionally, some people keep their medication in the fridge or freezer. If the power goes out, it puts those things at risk. That’s not just your health that’s at risk, but also the cost of medications. It’s not always affordable for people depending on the type of medication you are required to take, which means that you want to ensure you never have reason to worry that these things might go bad due to the power going out at any given time.

Furthermore, keeping kids entertained when the weather is bad and the power is out can be a real expense if you’re looking to get them out of the house. You might spend money on a hotel room to escape the hot summer without power, or on meals taking the family to restaurants or movies or anywhere else you might go to keep them entertained.
