Here in Santa Rosa, electrical repair services often need to address concerns with earthquake damage and similar hazards. When quakes hit, the power can go out for quite a while, and power to your home can also be lost due to a number of other factors as well. In light of that, you may want to consider adding a generator to your home, particularly an automatic standby generator which offers a number of tangible advantages.

What are the benefits for an automatic standby generator? A few quick answers can be found below:

Automatic standby generators are designed to cover the power needs for the entire house, not just a few appliances. That means you don’t need to worry about prioritizing your appliances and determining which electric lights, computers and other elements you need to live without. Instead, the automatic standby generator provides enough power to handle everything, even comparatively frivolous items like your entertainment center. Smaller portable generators can’t offer that kind of coverage, forcing you to make tough choices during a crisis.

More importantly, automatic standby generators are designed to switch on automatically when the power goes out. That means you can feel safe and secure even if you’re at work or out running errands when the power goes out. Not only does this add immeasurably to your peace of mind (and keep you from having to reset the oven clock, among other things) but it can be a lifesaver in homes where electricity is necessary, such as a family member who needs certain types of medical equipment or a home where a given temperature must be maintained at all times.

Additional benefits of an automatic standby generator include improved resale value to your home and the ability to stay in touch with the outside world when a crisis arises. But the biggest benefit is simple peace of mind: one less thing to worry about when life suddenly becomes difficult.
