The Benefits of Having a Home Backup Generator

Powered by liquid propane fuel or natural gas, residential backup generators offer homeowners peace of mind during unexpected power blackouts by providing a continuous flow of power. With so much of our daily lives revolving around electricity, home backup generators allow you to run appliances such as air conditioners, sump pumps, refrigerators, heaters, washers/dryers, and lights even when power is down.

A backup generator can power a house for days after a blackout. However, they can be complex machines and require a bit of an investment. Before making the final decision to buy a home backup generator, it is good to review its advantages and disadvantages. It is also important to consider the fuel sources.


A backup generator acts as an insurance policy. There is no telling when or if one will need it. Whether it is worth the investment depends on one’s tolerance for power interruptions, budget, and personal situation. People who rely on electricity to power medical equipment, live in an area with frequent, prolonged blackouts, or work at home and need uninterrupted power should invest in a backup generator. Having a generator installed is also an excellent option for anyone who wants peace of mind to be prepared for unexpected situations.
