Most homes on or close to a major body of water, like the Gulf of Mexico, or the Myakka River, are excellent candidates for a home generator. Why you might ask? By owning one of the best home generators, homeowners can stay powered up during major storms, hurricanes, and/or flooding, which can typically cause power outages for days.
As many locals know in the area, during hurricane season, not having a home generator can be both frustrating and nervewracking. Let’s review the case of Hurricane Sandy in 2012. Then, the superstorm caused millions of homeowners to lose power for weeks! In some cases, like the apartments in Rockaways in Long Island, homeowners had to wait 14 days for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to provide generators.
In Florida, it’s essential to make sure that your home is powered up 24/7, whether regularly or for emergency purposes. Whether you have children, pets, or even for yourself, we cannot deny the importance of electricity. It’s how you warm food, take showers, or keep your home cool during the scorching hot summer. For the benefit alone of being able to keep your home “on-the-grid” during storms or hurricanes, a home generator is easily one of the best inventions of our time. Trust us when we say that, next time power goes out and you have your new generator, you will be forever grateful.
