LDS Preparedness 101: Do You Need An Emergency Generator?

Click now to get PREPARED!

Do You Need An Emergency Generator?
What an emergency generator can do for you.
When the power goes out, you may find yourself wishing that you had an emergency generator. From the inability to heat your home to the matter of rotting food in the fridge and freezer, an emergency generator can help you avoid a number of headaches should you experience a significant interruption of power.
Power outages occur for a number of reasons including storms, overloaded circuits, someone hitting a power line during digging, and equipment failure. Because no one can predict when a power outage will occur, it’s important to be prepared for one at any time.

The Hours Can Seem Endless
While power companies try to get your power back on as quickly as possible when these things occur, it’s not uncommon for people to be without power for 72 hours or more when dealing with a severe power outage. Because of this, it’s important that you’re ready and an emergency generator can be a big part of being ready for a power outage.
An Emergency Generator to the Rescue
While an emergency generator may not restore power to every single item in your home, you can have an emergency generator to restore power to the essentials. If you’d like to have your heat, your television, a lamp and a microwave oven available to you during a power outage, an emergency generator may be just what you need.
What Kind Do I Need
There are two main types of emergency generators available to you — a permanent standby generator and a portable generator.
With a permanent standby emergency generator, the generator is installed by a licensed electrician and is wired as part of your electrical system. This type of system can cost thousands of dollars depending on the size of the generator and the complexity of the installation.
With a portable generator, you can power a few circuits at a time including lights, television, heat, etc. This type of emergency generator is more cost effective and can run you between $500 to $3000 and up depending on your specific needs. The size of the generator and the options you need all affect the cost of the unit.
While an emergency generator may be quite a large investment to many, it is well worth it in the case of an extended power outage.
