Generators act as a sort of ace in the hole for your household in the event of a disaster. When fueled and well-maintained, they can offer a number of advantages for your home. Here in Lexington, generators are a popular addition to numerous homes, and if you are a homeowner, you might seriously consider having one installed.
3 Advantages of Owning a Generator
- Reliability. Storms have a way of wreaking havoc with even the most reliable civic system, and when the power goes out, you could be stuck in a very tough spot. A generator gives you the power to keep food refrigerated, run lights and heaters, and even stay in contact with the outside world. We all hope we never need such self-sufficiency, but when the time comes, a good generator can be worth its weight in gold.
- Low operating costs. Assuming you have the right sort of fuel and keep it well maintained, generators are very easy on the pocketbook. They don’t cost an excessive amount to install and running them during an emergency can be surprisingly affordable. That enhances their attractiveness during the installation stage: the only time when you seriously have to watch the costs involved.
- Resale value. When the time comes to sell your home, a functioning generator can be an attractive component: adding value to the home and increasing its attractiveness to potential buyers. In the long run, it might even cover the cost of installation, and at the very least will help make the initial costs more affordable.
