How a Whole House Generator Reduces Homeowner Stress


Unless you have an off-grid home, your home’s power supply is dependent on the power grid. When blackouts occur due to storms or lightning, being without power for just a small amount of time can cause anxiety, stress, and panic attacks. That’s why you need a backup plan for when blackouts strike or the power grid fails.

A whole house generator in Sacramento, CA is the perfect solution for savvy homeowners, and for more reasons than one. Let’s go into all the different ways that a whole house generator can melt your stress away, especially in highly stressful situations with no available power.

Home Security Stays Online

Let’s say the power goes out in a flash (following the sound of thunder cracking, just to make it cinematic). Within around 60 seconds or less, your generator will kick in and restore the power, which means your home security systems won’t go down at any point.

In a power outage, a whole house generator will keep cameras online, your smart hub activated to call for help, and outdoor flood lights filling up the dark spaces of your yard. Instead of being in total darkness, you’ll have peace of mind that your neighbors won’t have during a blackout.

Reduced Risk of Injury

When the lights go out, and because you’re not used to walking around in the dark, you kind of forget the layout of your home. It’s easier than most people think to bump into something, trip, or fall down the stairs when the power is out. Knowing your lights will stay on isn’t just a convenience, it’s for safety, too. No more bumps in the blackout.

Home Medical Equipment Keeps Running

If you have home medical equipment that needs to stay on such as an oxygen machine, you can’t wait for the power to come back on. A whole house generator protects you and your loved ones who are depending on medical devices that need a power supply.

No More Disruptions to Your Quality of Life

Blackouts disrupt your activities and stop you from enjoying whatever you were doing before the power went out. With a whole house generator, it’ll pretty much be life as usual. Your lights, television, phone chargers, HVAC systems, and kitchen appliances will stay powered on. You won’t achieve that with a portable generator.

Don’t Stress it (Anymore)

When the next storm hits, as we know it will in California, you don’t have to be left in the dark. You can get back online with full electricity in under a single minute in most cases.

Your whole house generator will help get your home and family through tough storms until the power grid can be restored. That peace of mind is worth its weight in gold. Let’s get you started with a whole house generator installation today.
