Ready for Hurricane Season? 3 Reasons You Need a Generator

Hurricane season along the Atlantic coast lasts from June 1 to November 30, and North Carolina residents are situated well within the hurricane zone. A standby generator is a smart investment for anyone in this area. If you’re looking to improve your home’s emergency preparedness, here are some compelling reasons to include a new generator on your list.

Uninterrupted Power

Standby generators kick in when your power goes out, providing uninterrupted power. This means that the food in your fridge won’t spoil and your animals won’t be left in a sweltering sealed home if you’re away when the power goes out. There’s nothing you need to do to keep your home powered.

Work at Home Goes on as Usual

If you work from home, it’s more important than ever to keep power to your home. Even a minor storm can knock out power for hours, putting you behind your deadlines. Give your home office the same facilities a commercial workspace would enjoy and install a backup generator so you can keep working unhindered by the storm and keep money flowing in when you may need it the most.

Reliable Supply for Days

Portable generators have a limited lifespan and can power only a small area at a time. A standby generator will power your entire home for days at a time. Cut back on your energy usage during a major hurricane and your generator will last even longer. When there’s an emergency, portable generators will fly off the shelves, but a standby generator is a permanent installation that’s ready to spring into action when you need it.

If you’re looking for a smart way to keep your home safe this season, installing a backup generator is an excellent choice. With regular maintenance visits, you’ll stay protected through any storm. Contact Nicholson Company at 828-697-2638 to learn more.
