Save Money during Power Outages with a Generator

Automatic Generators are just too expensive. That is what you may be thinking. While it is true that automatic generators are typically a higher initial investment, after reading this post, you may discover that it is too expensive not to have one. That is because power outages are not just inconvenient; they can result in some costly damages. Here’s an estimated breakdown:

Basement Flood: Loss of $500 to $3,000

You probably have a sump pump if your home is prone to flooding. Unfortunately, if a large thunderstorm knocks the power out, your pump will not work unless it has a battery backup component. Flooding can cause irreparable damage to carpets, furniture, toys, etc. This doesn’t even mention all the irreplaceable items your basement may hold, such as photo albums and old-school projects.

Computer: Loss of $1,000

Unexpected power outages and power turn-ons can result in power surges that could fry your computer unless a surge protector protects it. Also, a loss of power could mean a loss of any unsaved documents or pictures and hours of work.

Food: Loss of $500-$800

If the power goes out for a sustained period of time, most of the food in your fridge or freezer will go bad and spoil, wasting a lot of money.

Batteries, Candles, etc.:  Loss of about $30

Without a generator, you will most likely be going through batteries and candles very quickly!

As you can see, an automatic generator does more than offering peace of mind. For more information about automatic generators, please contact FLAME!
