In the midst of the hurricane season in New Orleans, Louisiana, many homeowners find themselves wondering if they need a whole-home generator. The quick answer is yes. If you’re still on the fence, here are two reasons every New Orleans resident needs a whole-home generator.
Better Peace of Mind During a Power Outage
For many homeowners, peace of mind is the primary driver behind their purchase of a generator. With a generator on standby, you don’t have to worry about how you’ll keep your family safe and comfortable during an extended power outage. A whole-home generator kicks on automatically to keep your appliances running. This can be a literal lifesaver if you have a family member who relies on electrically-powered medical equipment.
Although a portable generator can provide some of the same benefits, a whole-home generator is clearly the better choice based on its capabilities. You’ll be able to power most if not all equipment, devices, and appliances effectively. A portable generator it is neither as safe nor as versatile as a whole-home model.
The Ability to Keep Working From Home
More people work from home today. Having a whole-home generator helps to ensure that you can continue working even if the power goes out. This can be especially helpful for those whose jobs rely heavily on computers. A whole-home generator is also beneficial if you operate a home business. Without a reliable generator, you’ll be handicapped until the power returns. Investing in one of these products is a good way to prevent interruptions in your workflow.
A power outage can result in damage to electrical equipment, food spoilage, and the expense of seeking alternate accommodations during extended outages. You’ll avoid those problems with your personal generator. To learn more about our whole-home generators, give Bryans United Air Conditioning a call at 504-208-2071.
