Why You Should Consider a Backup Generator from Apollo
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.

"Ernie & Mike did a superb job on my new furnace and A/C installation. Despite having more than a day’s work to do, they came in and stayed until the job was done. They were organized, efficient, and protected the rest of the house well. Got both furnace and A/C installed the same day. Ernie was courteous, informative, and clearly knew his job better than anyone I’ve encountered before. The units look so good guests now get The Tour of our new system. Apollo is clearly not a fly-by-night company. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new furnace and/or A/C."

"I called Apollo because of a water leak I thought I had in our upstairs shower going into the kitchen. Robbie came and assured me everything was fine & looked at all the other plumbing. He ended up changing a few pipes for our washer & clearing a drain. He was very nice & knowledgeable with all my questions. I ended up signing up for the care plan & was very happy with my service."

"The team at Apollo exceeded my expectations. As a business owner, my attention to the details and commitment to providing excellent service is high. From the sales rep. to the installation team, everyone’s performance was outstanding. For example, the installation team went to great lengths to protect our floors, placing floor runners and across the wood floors and up the stairs. They even were spot washing walls upon their departure. I highly recommend this company."

"We scheduled an estimate AND a tune-up. We knew something was wrong with our furnace, but hoped we could make it through the rest of the season. Upon telling Bill what our furnace was doing, he warned us immediately what the possible outcome was going to be; a cracked heat exchanger. He watched the flames roll backward, tested carbon monoxide levels, which were so high they meter’s last reading was 5,600 before saying “high”. He immediately shut it down, tagged it, and explained that with levels that high and children in our home he wanted off right away. He continued his inspection and showed us via a camera that not only was it cracked in multiple places, but had holes all over it. He gave us a few options for repairing it; his knowledge as well as genuine concern was beneficial and refreshing. Luckily we also scheduled an estimator, Micah, to come too and we were able to get costs between repairing and replacing (with several options). We decided to replace with a much higher efficiency furnace and one sized properly to our home. Hands down, not only did they both provide us great service and knowledge, but without sounding dramatic, they may have saved our lives. This was our first time calling Apollo, but it won’t be our last."

"Apollo is an excellent company. I always receive great service. Alex A. was professional and friendly. He kept me informed during the process of checking my furnace and heat pump to make sure they were working properly. The company makes sure you are notified who is coming and when they are on the way. All my interactions with the company have been wonderful."
