Whole Home Generator Installations by Morris-Jenkins

Being without power in your own home can make you feel pretty helpless. When the power’s out, your only escape from the darkness of your home is a bunch of candles or flashlights. Odds are, it’ll be too dark to find the matches, and the batteries in the flashlight are probably long dead.

And you better hope the outage doesn’t last long, or all the food in your fridge will spoil! And what if you need power to keep medical devices in your home working? Avoid the drama altogether with a standby home generator installed by Morris-Jenkins. Your family never has to be without power again!

What Is a Generator?

A generator is your own little powerplant. It’s also called a standby home generator or a whole home generator. It’ll keep your home’s power on when there’s an outage, and it’s a permanent fixture you can have installed outside (like your AC). When the generator detects a power outage, it comes on automatically, usually within seconds. This way, your family isn’t stuck in the dark! And to make things even better, generators last between 20-40 years (usually about 30 with proper maintenance), so your family won’t have to worry about power outages for a long time.

Bonus: Whole home generators increase the value of your home by 3-5%!

It doesn’t just keep your lights on, either. It can keep your HVAC system running, your Wi-Fi on, your medical devices powered up, and your fridge and freezer can stay on (so you don’t have to worry about spoiled food). Instead of riding out the storm in a dark house with no power, your family can go about life uninterrupted!

Who Should Get a Home Generator?

Some families choose to buy a portable generator from the hardware store instead of installing a whole home generator. While portable generators can help keep a few appliances on, they require a lot of gasoline and can be dangerous if they’re not set up or refilled the right way. Plus, they have to be started manually, which might not be safe to do during a storm (when your power is most likely to go out). If you’re looking to keep your family’s power on during outages, a whole home generator is gonna be a better choice for you and your family!

Does your home use a sump pump? A sump pump is a device that removes flood water. Keeping your crawlspace or basement free from mold, mildew, and water damage. If your power goes out and you don’t have a generator, your sump pump won’t be able to work properly, and it can’t protect your home from flooding during the storm!

Does your home use well water? When someone with well water loses power, they also lose water. Make sure your family has access to running water with a standby generator!
