LDS Preparedness 101: Should You Invest In an Emergency Backup Generator?

Click now to get PREPARED!

Should You Invest In an Emergency Backup Generator?
What you need to know before purchasing an emergency backup generator.
An emergency backup generator may be exactly what you need in the event of a power outage. Power outages can be caused by many things, including things as simple as a strong storm or someone accidentally taking out a power line to things as serious as a natural disaster or terrorist attack.
Because we never know when a power outage is going to strike, we can’t prevent them and because we can’t control the electric companies, we never know just how long we’re going to be without power. However, there is one thing we can do, and that’s looking into purchasing an emergency backup generator.

Do I Need an Emergency Backup Generator?
Many people find themselves asking if they really need an emergency backup generator. While you may think you don’t need one right now, think of how you’ll feel if your power is out for more than three days. All of the food in your fridge starts to rot, you can’t heat your house, you can’t cook, you can’t watch television, you can’t see at night. The list goes on.
If you don’t like the above scenario, then you probably want to have an emergency backup generator on hand. That doesn’t mean that you need to install the biggest and best of the best, running into thousands of dollars. In fact, it’s important that you don’t buy the biggest most expensive generator out there.
Size Correlates to Run Time
Why wouldn’t you want the biggest emergency backup generator to power your house? The answer to that question is actually quite simple. Because size has a direct correlation to how much fuel you need in order to run the emergency backup generator. A smaller generator will run longer on a gallon of fuel than a large emergency backup generator will, so a smaller one will give you more bang for your buck. While a larger emergency backup generator may be able to power more things, a smaller emergency backup generator can power the necessities and will be able to do it for a longer period of time.
Quality Counts
Now just because you don’t want to buy the biggest emergency backup generator you can find, that doesn’t mean you want to buy the cheapest either. Plan on spending at least $500 for a decent smaller generator. Anything less than that isn’t a good quality emergency backup generator.
