Reasons Why a Generator Is a Good Investment

June 19, 2017



As a culture, we have come to rely on electric power, so it can be inconvenient, or even dangerous, when that power goes out. Even though they’re not necessary in every situation, a generator can be a lifesaver in some situations.

Here are three reasons to consider buying one:

Ride out the storm

If you live in a storm-prone area of the country—along the coast, or in Tornado country, your power may go out more often and for longer periods of time. Or perhaps you are connected to an older section of the electrical grid, which makes you more vulnerable to power outages. A generator provides you peace of mind in these circumstances, and your investment will pay off more quickly if you find yourself using your generator several times a year.

Protect the essentials

Owning a generator is not just about keeping the lights, computers and TV’s on while the rest of the neighborhood makes do with flashlights. For those living in extreme climates with children or the elderly, an extended power outage can be dangerous. A generator can keep the interior temperature in the safe zone. If your power is off for several days, a generator will also keep your fridge and freezer cold so your food won’t spoil.

Stay in business

Food isn’t the only essential item you could lose in a power outage. With approximately 14 million home-based businesses in the U.S., there’s a good chance you have sensitive business or personal data stored at home on a computer. A generator helps protect you against data loss, and can keep you in business during an extended outage.

Owning a generator may not be for everyone, but if you are in one of the situations above, there are affordable options to keep you up and running even while the power is out. McCurdy Electric specializes in generator sales, installation, and maintenance. For more information, please call 781-595-7074.
