Do you live in the amazing city of Riverside? If so, no doubt you’ve been experiencing a lot more rain than normal. Rain is something we here in Southern California will not often complain about. However, we may be finding out that our homes are not prepared for it. One way that we may be caught off guard, is in regards to our electricity. Have we discovered that our lights have flickered on and off? Possibly so, and even worse, we may have lost power completely. If we are finding that this is the case for us, we may consider purchasing a generator. You may think to yourself, I can deal with a little power outage. However, we may not have considered the hidden benefits to owning a generator. What would be the benefits to having a generator? Here are a few reasons:
- Prevent Spoiling. Any wife will be sure to tell you that groceries can grow to be very expensive. Regardless of whether we are a family of 2 or 5, prices can add up quickly. Carpenter Electric says, “ When the average homeowner considers just the food that they have lost over the years due to power outages, the cost of a portable generator becomes much more appealing.”
- Health Concerns. If we are up in years or have family members living with us that are, this concern is important. It’s a possibility that our family members need oxygen machines. How terrible it would be if we lost power and didn’t have a back up means to provide them with oxygen.
Whatever the case may be, I’m sure you’d agree that both of these are important. If you are considering getting a generator, please let Riverside Electrical help your family out! Our talented electricians look forward to assisting you today!
