When people think of ways to protect their homes, probably things like good insurance and possibly a home security system are the first things that come to mind. But did you know that you could protect your investment with a backup generator as well? With the weather in our area becoming more and more unpredictable, the likelihood that you’ll need to protect your home from power outages increases. That’s why more and more people in the Utica, NY area are turning to standby generators for enhanced home safety.

But you may be wondering why you’d even need a generator for your Utica, NY home. Sure, they’re convenient in the instance of a power outage, but are they really that important? According to the Huffington Post, for some people, having a generator can be a lifesaver. The news outlet says, “A loss of electricity can be particularly hard on older adults, who are susceptible to hypothermia – below normal body temperature – as well as hyperthermia – exceptionally high fever – during temperature extremes.” The article goes on to say that a loss of power can also interfere with needed home medical interventions, like nebulizers, oxygen and CPAP machines – making a home without electricity a dangerous place for some.

Even if no one in your home is at risk medically, not having power can cause a whole host of health, safety and sanitation concerns. If you rely on electricity for a basement sump pump, a power outage during a storm can quickly translate into a flooded basement. Not to mention, your refrigerator won’t be able to keep your food at the right temperature, so spoilage can occur. And we all know how harsh winters can be in Utica, NY – a winter storm can quickly turn into a power outage, and that means your home could become dangerously cold, causing health concerns and frozen – and potentially burst – pipes.
