The Power Behind Generators
Shedding Light on an Investment That Pays Off
When it comes to your home comfort, certain decisions are easier to make than others. Take, for instance, a light bulb that goes out. Without much thought, you’ll run to the store and purchase a new one if you’ve been satisfied with the brand and wattage. But what about when the lights go out altogether? It’s a circumstance that no homeowner or business owner wants to face, yet it happens quite often in Central Iowa. Nevertheless, you are hesitant to invest in a generator because of the upfront expense. While it’s impossible to deny that generators are more expensive pieces of equipment, it’s important to consider the impact that they have on homes and businesses. Fully committed to protecting both comfort and profit, we at Integra Electrical want to share with you the ways in which generators are a blessing in disguise during times of trouble.
Considering All of the Facts
During any given week, 3.5 million American homes lose power. While no one can argue the convenience that electricity provides on a regular basis, it doesn’t always stick around when you need it to. And here in Central Iowa, Mother Nature isn’t exactly concerned about preserving your electricity.
Oftentimes, the tornadoes that sweep through our area arrive quickly and without warning—making it impossible to buy nonperishables at the local store or cancel an order of medicine that’s out for delivery. As much as we value our spring and summer weather, the high humidity facilitates a breeding ground for sudden, severe storms.
When the electricity goes out, you’re losing a lot more than the lights. Power outages can wreak havoc on your home or business in a multitude of ways, including:
- Shutting off some of the most essential appliances in your home or business, such as the furnace, air conditioner, refrigerator, sump pump and security systems.
- Putting your pipes at risk for freezing and bursting in the colder weather.
- Cutting off access to safe drinking water.
- Spoiling perishable items, including essential medicine.
- Making your home or business more vulnerable to looting and theft.
- Giving customers the impression that your business is closed, ultimately affecting profit.
