Why Backup Generators Are Important

Backup generators are an invaluable asset for both homeowners and businesses in the Portage area. No one wants to experience an unexpected power outage; especially when it can affect their ability to keep their food cold, maintain valuable electronic items such as computers and televisions, or even ensure their safety during hazardous weather conditions. With a backup generator on hand, you can rest assured that your home or business will remain powered up even after a blackout occurs.  A Generac power generator, installed and maintained by the team at Hi-Tech Electric Company, can ensure that no matter what happens, you’ll always have the power you need to ensure that data is properly saved and stored, perishables stay at the correct temperature, and essential communication devices stay functional.

What are the Benefits of Having a Backup Generator?

Backup generators offer several benefits, particularly in situations where a reliable source of electricity is essential. 

Here are some of the key advantages of having a backup generator:

  • Continuous Power Supply: Backup generators ensure a continuous supply of electricity during power outages. This is critical for homes, businesses, and institutions that rely on electricity for essential functions, such as medical equipment, refrigeration, heating and cooling, and security systems.
  • Convenience: Backup generators provide convenience by maintaining the operation of household appliances, lighting, and electronic devices, which can help maintain a comfortable and functional living or working environment.
  • Safety: In situations where power outages are caused by extreme weather events, natural disasters, or emergencies, backup generators can help maintain essential safety systems, such as sump pumps to prevent basement flooding, security lighting, and communication equipment.
  • Business Continuity: For businesses, backup generators are essential for minimizing downtime and ensuring that critical operations, data centers, and electronic equipment continue to function, even during extended power interruptions. This helps maintain business continuity and customer service.
  • Preservation of Food and Medicine: Backup generators keep refrigerators and freezers running, preventing the spoilage of food and medications that require refrigeration. This is crucial for both households and healthcare facilities.
  • Data Protection: Data loss can be a significant issue for businesses and individuals. Backup generators ensure that data storage devices, servers, and computers remain operational, reducing the risk of data loss due to sudden power interruptions.
  • Comfort: Backup generators allow you to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature during power outages, ensuring heating and cooling systems remain functional. This is particularly important in extreme weather conditions.
  • Avoiding Financial Loss: Businesses can avoid financial losses caused by power outages, as they can continue to serve customers, protect inventory, and keep critical machinery and equipment operational.
  • Increased Property Value: Having a backup generator can increase the value of a property. Potential buyers and renters often see it as an attractive feature, especially in areas prone to power outages.
  • Peace of Mind: Knowing that you have a reliable source of backup power can provide peace of mind during storms, emergencies, or other situations that may disrupt the electrical grid.
  • Customizable Options: Backup generators come in various sizes and types, including portable generators, standby generators, and solar-powered systems. This allows you to choose a solution that suits your specific needs and budget.

While backup generators offer numerous benefits, it's essential to select the right type and size of generator for your needs and to perform regular maintenance to ensure it remains in working condition when you need it most. Additionally, it's important to consider the environmental impact, fuel source, and local regulations when choosing a backup generator.

How Backup Generators Work 

Backup generators function by providing an alternative source of electricity when the primary power has been lost due to a blackout or some other issue. These generators come in various sizes and configurations to suit different needs and purposes; they range from small portable units intended for residential use all the way up to large industrial systems capable of powering entire factories and buildings. When the power goes out, these systems automatically kick into action and begin providing electricity until the primary source is restored. 

Types of Backup Generators Available 

At Hi-Tech Electrical Company, we offer several different types of backup generators from Generac that cater to all kinds of residential, commercial, and industrial applications. For residential customers, we provide portable and stationary generators that provide quiet and reliable performance for homes with short backup timeframes. For larger commercial customers we have standby models available such as those from the Guardian series which are designed for long-term reliability and larger capacity requirements. We also install propane-fueled standby generators which require minimal maintenance compared to traditional gasoline alternatives. 

No matter what kind of generator you require – whether it’s for a small residential property or a large industrial facility – Hi-Tech Electrical Company has you covered with our quality installation, repair, and maintenance services.
