Emergency Power UPS and Generator Installation
Why you may need Emergency Power
If you live in an area where there is risk of a power outage then you should consider installing a source of backup power. If you have systems installed that must stay on at all times then this is a consideration as well.
If you do not need a great deal of power such as running a few lights and mission critical computer systems then having a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) which is essentially a large battery backup should suit your requirements.
If more power is required to supply a heat pump or electric heating system for instance or you expect the possibility of having the power go off for an extended period of time then getting a generator is the best option.
Emergency Power Backup
We can provide you with two options, one with gasoline , and another option is A permanently installed Generac
Home backup generator protects your home automatically. It runs on natural gas or liquid propane (LP) fuel, and sits outside just like a central air conditioning unit. A home backup generator delivers power directly to your home’s electrical system, backing up your entire home or just the most essential items.
How It Works
They are Automatic Operation, 24/7, no need to start the genereator, as it starts automatically, refueling not necessary, you never need extension cord. Provides 100% when the need comes
Don’t worry about having to be there to start and stop your Generac home backup generator. Because it does that automatically. Whether you’re home or away.
House Depot provides full installation, both gas and electric interface to your house
5 Good Reasons to Install a Generator
Home Security: Burglar alarms and Wired Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors need to run constantly to ensure the maximum level of safety.
Avoid your heating and cooling systems shutting down at the worst times. A winter ice storm often leaves you without power at the coldest times of the year. Electric heating systems and heat pumps run entirely on electrical power and backup heating systems for times it is too cold for a heat pump to operate are all electric heaters.
Natural disasters such as hurricane force winds and tornados play havoc with the electrical grid. You could well find yourself cut off from television, radio and internet just when you need most to pay attention to emergency broadcast although in the last twenty years the cellular network has gone a long way to alleviating this particular concern however if your phone battery runs out when it can’t be charged you will be cut off when you can least afford it.
Just being able to live and possibly work normally if you work out of your home and the power goes off for an extended period of time can save you a lot of headaches, it has not been so many years that most of us have forgotten the huge blackout we suffered for three days when the power distribution grid failed for much of New York and Ontario several years ago. Food was unable to be cooked and refrigeration failed leading to massive food spoilage and if it happened once it could happen again.
Sometimes critical systems just have to stay up. If your computers and network are critical to you or you are running medically necessary equipment you quite simply can’t afford to have them fail.
It is not just isolated areas in the country at risk of power failures, lines blow down, transformers can explode, power generating systems can fail leading to blackouts wherever you live.
