Do I Need A Backup Generator?

July 27, 2023 | Blog

Mother Nature can be cruel and unforgiving. From severe thunderstorms and howling winds to tornadoes or hurricanes, there’s a lot that can impact the Mississippi weather. These storms have the potential to cause major property damage, but even the smallest, most mild storms can have effects on your home with the event of a power outage.

Power outages do more than just shut off the lights and electronics in your home. They also affect systems like your HVAC unit, refrigerator and sump pump. The damage alone from a failed sump pump is scary enough to consider the purchase of one thing that can prevent this – a backup power generator.

Luckily, the team here at Ball Heating, Cooling, Plumbing & Electrical is proud to provide our Biloxi customers with trusted electrical services.

Why Do Homeowners Need A Backup Power Generator?

During a power outage, there is really no telling when the power will come back on in your area. Because of this, it’s best to be prepared for the possibility of going long periods of time without power.

With a backup power generator, you can provide your home with temporary electric power that keeps systems like your air conditioner, refrigerator and sump pump running. This allows you and your family to live as comfortably as you can while the main power is being repaired. If you’re ready to start exploring the possibility of a home generator installation, reach out to the team at Ball Heating & Air Conditioning!

Before you purchase a backup generator, it’s important to determine if it’s worth the investment. Living in storm-prone areas like the Gulf Coast puts your home in the path of seasonal tropical storms and hurricanes. Make sure your household has access to lights, climate control and hot water with a generator installation from our team.

The Portable And Fixed Generator

There are two main types of generators to consider for your home — portable and fixed. A fixed generator is installed to the home itself and is connected to the utility lines that provide it with fuel. The benefit of this type of generator is that it provides an immense amount of power to your home and can automatically detect a power outage. However, the downside to these is that they are a large upfront investment.

Portable generators are the other generator option and are a popular choice for many of our customers. These systems are a smaller investment and still provide effective power to homes during an outage. The disadvantage of a portable unit is that most units require gas and must be turned on manually.

For many Biloxi residents, a fixed generator is the most comprehensive option to keep your home powered in the wake of a storm. For other households, a backup generator provides enough power to get you through the worst of it.

Benefits Of A Backup Generator

During a time of disaster, the necessity of a backup generator can be the defining factor of a quick and speedy recovery and rebuild. No matter what type of generator you purchase, it will have a slew of benefits that come along with it. The following is what you can expect from your backup generator:

  • Access to instant backup power
  • Functioning HVAC system
  • Preservation of refrigeration and cold food
  • Sump pump damage prevention
  • Frozen pipe prevention
  • Additional security

With all the benefits and peace of mind that a backup generator can provide and protect, many homeowners in Biloxi find it’s worth the investment. The team at Ball Heating & Air Conditioning is here to help our customers decide on the right backup generator that can allow your family to live comfortably year-round.
