Many people only associate HVAC systems with heating and air conditioning needs. But did you know that Pioneer Heating and Air also offers products and service for standby generators at home? A generator can provide you with electricity in the event of a power outage, often in the range of 8,000 to 22,000 watts. That’s enough to power an entire house, including the central heat and air conditioning units. Don’t get left out in the cold this winter — or any winter! Here are some of the top reasons why investing in a generator is a good idea, any time of year.
- Protect Perishable Items: What happens to the groceries in your refrigerator if the power goes out? They could go bad within hours. With a generator to kick in the energy needed to power your fridge, however, you can rest assured that they’ll be perfectly fine tomorrow.
- Avoid Flood Damage: Bad storms can bring more than just downed power lines. Make sure that your sump pump continues to run, even when the power is out, with a home generator for backup safety in the event of a potential flood.
- Stay Comfortable: If your heat turns off during a bad winter storm, you won’t need a generator for only light and heat. It’s essential to make sure that your pipes don’t freeze during an extended outage, which could cause serious damage to your HVAC systems in the long run.
- Keep Technology Up and Running: Whether you work from home or simply rely on your electronic devices for daily tasks, a power outage could turn a productive day into a complete non-starter. Protect important files and sensitive systems from an unexpected outage.
- Peace of Mind: No matter where you live, there’s a security in knowing that you’ll have power — regardless of whatever plans Mother Nature has in mind. Plus, it will increase the value of your home: future buyers will love knowing that a standby generator is already up and running to protect their valuables, too.
