Why You Should Consider a Backup Generator from Apollo


post img Whether due to a summer thunderstorm or a supply shortage, a power outage is rarely enjoyable. If you’re well prepared, however, it doesn’t have to be miserable. Your comfort is just one of the reasons to consider a generator in Cincinnati.

Maintain Your Comfort

One of the main reasons to consider a generator in Cincinnati is our climate. The frequent severe weather we see means power outages are likely several times a year. When the city power grid goes down, a backup generator will start up almost immediately to keep your home running. Depending on the size of generator you choose, you can run everything from just a few lights and your refrigerator to almost every appliance in the house, including your air conditioner. Compare this to a portable generator, which requires time for set up and can power only a few appliances. With a backup generator, you know you won’t be left sitting around bored in the dark a few times every year.

Protect Your Family and Home

Safety is also among the reasons to consider a generator in Cincinnati. For small children and elderly adults, even a few hours without sufficient heating or cooling poses a serious health risk. Should the power go out during a summer storm, a large enough backup generator will keep the A/C on, which could save a family member from life-threatening heat stroke. During a long power outage, especially in summer, your frozen and refrigerated foods are at high risk for spoilage. Having a generator to keep the refrigerator and freezer running will save you the cost of wasted food and time spent on a grocery shopping. With thunderstorms comes heavy rainfall that spells trouble for your basement if your sump pump isn’t running because the power was knocked out. A backup generator will keep your sump pump working to prevent basement flooding that causes severe damage and encourages harmful mold growth throughout your home.
