You cannot prepare for everything. There are situations in life that will blindside you, and there are situations that you thought you might encounter eventually that will actually arrive much earlier than expected. That being said, we are big proponents for at least preparing for situations that are likely, and using a whole-house generator is definitely one way to do so. It is only a matter of time before your power goes out and stays out for more than a brief window.
When these power outages happen, is your home prepared? What does being prepared for such outages actually mean? If you ask our electricians, it means having a great whole-house generator in place. Why? We’ll get into that more below, but basically, it comes down to convenience and reliability. There is no situation in which a portable generator is better in the event of a power outage when it comes to keeping a whole house up and running.
