Emergency Generators

Emergency Generators

Michigan weather has proved itself brutal time and time again. Tornadoes, thunderstorms, floods, heavy snowstorms and more. These storms can knock out power for several hours or even days at a time. When the power goes down, make sure that you have an emergency generator to power your home. Applegate Home Comfort can help.

Applegate Home Comfort is dedicated to providing Michigan with only the best in HVAC services and repairs, and also offers generators to help you prepare for the next time the power goes down. We are proud to offer Generac Generators, as well as service and repair when things go wrong. Here’s a look at types of emergency generators and how you can get in contact with Applegate Home Comfort to get started.

Seasonal Weather

No matter the time of year, if you live in Michigan, you are always at risk for severe weather. It is well known that Michigan can get extremely hot in the summers, and extremely cold in the winter. When the power goes out, these extreme temperatures can seep into your home easily, not only making it uncomfortable, but potentially dangerous for more sensitive members of the family.

When the power goes out, no matter the season, it is important to have a generator for emergency power. A generator, standby or portable, can be used to give your home power until the electrical utilities can be restored. A standby generator is likely capable of powering your entire home, giving you refrigeration, temperature controls, and lights. A portable generator might not be able to handle that kind of power.

Standby Generators

A standby generator is not portable or movable. In fact, it becomes a part of your home. It will be installed in your yard away from your home, and be hooked to your home’s gas line and circuits. It will use gas to create power that is then transferred to your home and used just like the utility. All you need to do is turn it on to start running power to your home. There are many types of standby generators, some more powerful than others. Make sure that you get a generator that can handle your needs.

Some of the benefits of owning a backup generator include a fast and automatic delivery of power during a blackout. Homeowners can operate their homes, heating and cooling systems, and other appliances while their main power is out. This will help maintain energy in your home, even if the power goes out due to seasonal weather or electrical grid failure
