How many times have you been left without crucial household essentials because of a bad thunderstorm or snowstorm?

In the olden days, people could go months, or even years, without electricity, and they had ways of managing all of their household essentials without the luxury of power. However, this isn’t the olden days. And while many of us are capable of handling whatever we need to handle without power, it’s simply more comfortable and convenient to use electricity to cope with everyday home life. For example? We can wash dishes, wash our clothes, cook our food, and take a steamy shower – all with the magic of electrical power.
What Does a Backup Generator Do?
Backup generators are alternate power supplies that provide your home with temporary electricity while your primary power experiencing an outage. It’s a smaller power source that’s not meant to last forever, but it can get you through bad thunderstorms or neighborhood blackouts.
The average backup generator has a power supply of 3,000 hours. That would be 125 days of electricity if you kept it running 24 hours per day (which is rare to do).
How Much Does a Backup Generator Cost?
Backup generators vary in cost depending on the size of the home, the make and model of the generator, and how much power you need to generate. Most generators start around $1,900 and go up from there. The national average for the United States is $5,900 to power a mid-size home.
