Why You Too Should Have a Powerful Generator at Home

No one likes to think about natural disasters and emergencies that may happen in the future, but the reality is that we can’t predict what will happen in the days ahead. In addition to stocking up on non-perishable food and water and preparing a first-aid kit, one of the best ways you can be prepared is to have a home generator.

Here are a few reasons why a generator is important to have in your home and some details about the generators we offer at Central Plumbing Specialties.

Reasons to Have Your Own Generator

Especially during the winter season, there are many reasons you need a generator in your home. Power outages are common in the winter and can cause many different issues for homeowners. Having the power go out is more than just an inconvenience because the safety and security of your home can be compromised.

Prevent Accidents

Even if you have lived in your home for many years, trying to navigate spaces in the dark can be dangerous and result in accidents. It is easy to trip and fall on items left on the floor during a power outage, but with a portable generator, you can keep essential lights on to stay safe.

Preserve Your Perishables

If the power goes out for an extended period of time, all of the food items in your refrigerator and freezer could spoil and become toxic to eat. Some generators are capable of powering your fridge and freezer so that you have plenty of food to eat and nothing goes to waste.

Stay Informed During Emergencies

Whether it’s a blizzard, ice storm, or hurricane, it’s important to keep up with the local news and weather to monitor conditions outside your home. With a generator in your home, you can power up televisions, radios, and laptops to learn about what’s going on outside.

Keep Warm in the Winter

One of the most dangerous things about a winter power outage is that it can leave you without electric sources heat in your home. Larger generators have the power to get space heaters and electric stoves working again to keep you warm and comfortable.

Ensure Your Home is Safe

In times of a disaster, you want to feel safe and know that you can rely upon your home security system. Since these systems typically rely on electricity, a power outage could leave your family unprotected. This is another great reason to have a generator in your home.

Our Portable Generators

Portable generators are great options for households because they are energy efficient, have long lifespans, and are easy to maintain. At Central Plumbing Supplies, we offer 3250, 5500, 6500, and 7500-watt portable Honeywell generators. These generators are durable, user-friendly with an all-in-one control panel, and are easy to store and transport from one area to another. They have a touch-button, hassle-free start with a battery included and offer engine protection to prevent potential damage if the oil is low.

You can learn more about each of these models on our product specifications sheet, such as the portable generators’ sizes, outlets, and warranty information. Or stop by one of our New York locations to see the models and take one home as part of your winter preparedness plan.
