Are you looking for a way to protect your family during power outages? Do you want to get a back-up power source that can provide enough electricity into your home?
Whether you are worried about basement flood damage due to sump pump failure, food spoiling because the freezer or refrigerator is off or that someone may break into your home when the security system isn’t on, a generator will power the household appliances and devices of paramount importance until the electricity is restored.
We can integrate your generator with the electrical system of your home. In the event of a power outage, you can manually or automatically switch the power source to generator power to ensure continuous operation of critical appliances.
Some generators even have the capability of keeping you current of their status via e-mail while you are away on vacation. You will be informed when your generator was required to start due to a power failure. You can then have a family member or neighbour inspect your home to ensure that all is well.
Adding a generator to your emergency toolkit brings you one step closer to being better prepared for an extended outage. But, you need to know how to safely operate it. Watch this.Posted by Toronto Hydro on Tuesday, January 20, 2015
