As an expert in installing home generators in the Clearwater FL area, Positricity is often asked questions about the process. Our technicians are used to installing home generators of all sizes. Here are some reasons people consider when contemplating installing a home generator.
Using a generator to combat inconvenience during weather
In Clearwater, the weather is usually the driving force behind buying generators for homes. Knowing you have a backup plan for when a storm passed through can give you a sense of safety throughout the year. The hurricane season can last from June through November. Remember, even tropical storms can knock out the power on your block.
For medical safety
With the trend for Clearwater residents, and the rest of Florida, to stay in the home as they age, is it not uncommon for medical equipment to be stationed in the household. CPAP machines, electric home hospital beds, scooters, and nebulizers all are depending on electricity to be supplied to the home. In addition, losing the air conditioning in July can cause its own kind of medical threat through personal overheating.
With a hurricane electrical outage, even battery powered devices fail after 24 to 48 hours. Being able to stay connected to others electronically and getting news can be a very important thing during the recovery phase of a hurricane. Home internet access may fail as soon as the electricity goes out, but to keep mobile internet working, the phones or tablets will need to be recharged frequently.
Being a resource to friends and neighbors
By having a home generator, your home can become a refuge for your family, friends and neighbors who were not able to plan as thoroughly as you. You put yourself in a position to be able to help others by letting them come over, cool off and recharge their devices.
