Do I Need A Backup Generator?

October 25, 2023 | Blog

When storms loom on the horizon, being left in the dark without power is the last thing you want. Power outages can occur when you least expect them, disrupting your daily life with unforeseen inconveniences. In these cases, a backup power generator can provide your home with temporary power for up to several days. Having backup power can be exceptionally useful in places, like Lake Charles, which are prone to storms.

We at Ace Air Conditioning & Plumbing are your trusted Lake Charles electricians, and we’re here to shed light on the many benefits of owning a backup generator.

Should You Install A Backup Generator?

Living in beautiful Louisiana brings its own special set of challenges, and one of them is the unpredictable weather. Storms can roll in without warning, causing power outages that can last for hours or even days.

If you’re wondering whether you should consider a backup generator, ask yourself if you’ve ever dreaded having to bear a blackout in your home upon hearing of a coming storm. If you live in a particularly stormy region like Lake Charles, that might happen quite often. Investing in a backup generator with the help of Ace can save you from that trouble.

Advantages And Benefits Of A Backup Generator

By installing a backup generator, you can save time, money and of course convenience. There are many ways in which you can benefit from owning one. Here are some of the advantages.

Bring The Power Back Instantly

When the lights go out, your backup generator will spring into action, providing instant power to keep your essential appliances and devices running smoothly. That includes your HVAC system, electronics and much more. No more scrambling for flashlights or worrying about food in the fridge going bad!

Protect Your Food

Speaking of food, a backup generator ensures your refrigerated and frozen goods stay fresh. This prevents costly food wastage during extended power outages. You’ll be both saving money and keeping the food in your home healthy and fresh, so you can enjoy your meal uninterrupted while the storm rages outside.

Keep A Comfortable Temperature

Losing power robs you of both heating and cooling in your home. A winter storm could leave your home vulnerable to the elements. Likewise, during Louisiana’s sweltering summer heat, losing air conditioning during a power outage can quickly become unbearable. A backup generator keeps your home cool and warm as needed, ensuring you and your home’s comfort and well-being.

Extra Power For Extended Outages

Some outages can stretch on for days, especially during Louisiana storms, and a backup generator becomes a lifeline during these times. You won’t have to brave the harsh weather outside if a backup generator is available to power your home.

Frozen And Burst Pipe Prevention

In the rare event of winter chills, a backup generator keeps your heating system operational, preventing frozen pipes that can lead to water damage and costly repairs.

Maintain Your Sump Pump

If your home is prone to flooding, a sump pump is your first line of defense. A backup generator ensures it keeps running even when the power grid fails, protecting your home from fierce floods.

Add Value To Your Home

If you’re thinking of selling your home sometime in the future, owning a backup generator can add value to your property! Having one will not only make your life at home easier, but it will also make your home more attractive to prospective buyers.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Friendly and Honest

Technician came out to my house within an hour of calling and he was very friendly and honest. I was expecting to have to replace the whole unit or have a salesman try to have me “upgrade” to a newer unit but Mr Jeff was quick to diagnose and correct the problem at a reasonable cost.

Excellent Service!

We called Ace on a Sunday. Several hours later a serviceman arrived, inspected the air conditioner, and got it working. The serviceman was quite knowledgeable. Excellent service!

Highly Recommended

Jace went out of his way to get my air conditioner repaired so that my home would be comfortable for the weekend. He was extremely polite and professional. I highly recommend ACE as a company and Jace as a technician. I could not have been more pleased with the service I received.
