If you’ve ever weathered the effects of a storm without electricity, you’ll know the importance of generators.
Generators are an important part of your home’s safety and security, providing electricity during a power outage, whether for two hours or two weeks. If young children or elderly live in your house, their safety and well-being may depend on it. If you work at home, a generator will be critical to powering laptops, phones, and other devices, never mind flushing toilets and retaining access to refrigerated food.Depending on what model and brand you’re looking into, generators can cost as little as a few hundred dollars upfront. There are many generator options which cater to different needs. One person may want a generator with the capacity to only power their well and fridge, while someone else may want their whole home powered.
Here at Loughlin Electric, our certified Generac Generator technicians are ready to help you choose and install a generator and then assist in maintaining its life. Whether during a storm or a system failure, make sure you and your family are always protected with a generator!
