When Is the Best Time to Buy a Generator?

August 2, 2022

Now, while the weather is good, it’s a great time for you to think about buying a home generator. Haly Home Comfort & Great Valley Propane can help you choose the right one for your family.

Power outages can be caused by severe weather, such as a snowstorm or hurricane, or by an overloaded electrical grid. A power outage often occurs with little to no warning. No matter when a blackout happens, it’s a major inconvenience.  

Without electricity, people who use well water won’t be able to shower or flush the toilet. Your sump pump won’t work, which means you could spend thousands on a flooded basement.  Depending on how much food you have in the freezer or refrigerator, you can lose hundreds of dollars during a single outage. And you will be without your cell phone once the phone’s battery runs out.

Whole-House/standby generators are low maintenance and come on automatically when the power is lost. A large capacity generator will do more than just keep the lights on. It will power the entire house including your HVAC system which keeps your family comfortable and your home protected. Everyone’s happy as long as the heat and A/C are working.

If you’re buying a house that has a generator it’s important that it’s the right kind of generator.  A homebuyer will appreciate the fact that they have a built-in system ready to protect them and their family in the event of an emergency. What a great selling point!

A whole-home/standby generator should supply more than 3,000 hours of usage but can frequently get even more than that if the equipment is properly maintained.
