The Costs of Power Outages Far Outweigh the Costs of a Whole House Generator. When Will You Be Affected?

The statistics are daunting. No doubt you’ve seen that over 75% of power outages throughout the United States are from weather-related problems. You’ve probably also seen that the direct cost of power outages in the U.S. is nearly $20 Billion dollars every single year. But did you know that more than a half million people are affected every day in the United States by a power outage? In fact, the average American household will lose power at least once or twice every year, and it will stay off for an average of 3 hours. While losing power a couple times a year for just a few hours might not seem remarkable, it’s important to remember that this statistic is an average.

That means if you haven’t had a major power outage this year, that someone else has likely been the recipient of your time. If your neighbors haven’t lost their power this year, multiply that number times 2 or 3 more, and give all that time to some poor unfortunate soul. A major power outage could last for hours, days, weeks, or even longer. You simply can’t wait on the power company to restore power to you and your family. You need a Whole House Generator from the world’s leading manufacturer, installed by North America’s fastest growing generator installation company. But what kind of generator best fits your needs? The experienced professionals from Anderson Power Services are always ready and willing to help you decide the best generator for you!

Have You Asked, “Which Generator is Best for Me?" Let’s Take a Look at Your Whole House Generator Options.

When deciding what kind of generator is best for residential needs, you can get as in-depth as you want. Every brand and type of generator has pros and cons. But perhaps it’s better to start making your decisions based on a simple equation of supply and demand. If you demand a certain amount of wattage to be able to safely power the items you want to keep going at your home, then you want a generator that will supply you safely with more available wattage. If you only need to keep a certain few electrical appliances to be operational, then a lower output generator might meet your needs. There are obviously other factors when deciding between a whole house generator and a more compact one, but let’s first take a look at the average wattage requirements for some of your electronic appliances.
