Be Prepared for Severe Weather with a Backup Generator!
We are in bad weather season – from tornadoes and severe storms tearing across the Mid-West to hurricanes and
tropical storms on the East Coast. The amount of times the power has gone out in areas in northern Illinois Indiana and Southern Wisconsin is already too high to count. But, there’s an easy way to keep you and your family out of the dark in a storm.
Since 2012, one in every four homeowners has experienced a power outage lasting 12 hours or more, according to a recent Harris Interactive survey. Property damage averaged more than $1,900. Most homeowners don’t consider the need for a backup generator until they actually need one because the electricity has gone out. During the humid summer or frigid winter, we only recognize the weather issues when the A/C or Heater is down and we have no lights! But, at this point, it’s too late.
Portable Generators Vs. Standby Generators
There are an increasing number of homeowners as well as businesses that are considering or have already bought a backup generator. Most homeowners think a portable generator will do them good…and, in some situations, they do work just fine. This is an immediate solution to an emergency power outage that can run home essentials. Plus, you can bring it with you camping or to a tailgater! Standby generators, though, offer a more powerful solution when the electricity goes out…especially if it goes out for longer than a few hours. Standby generators automatically turn on when a power outage occurs. They are piece of mind for homes as well as business.
We offer residential and commercial backup generators
clean power, quiet operation and a 5-year limited warranty. Isn’t it time to see how Steiner can keep your home or business powered when your neighbors aren’t?
