Do I Need A Backup Generator?

June 28, 2023 | Blog

Imagine this scenario: it’s rainy season in Southern Louisiana and a fierce storm has filled the sky in the Mississippi River Valley area with thick, dark clouds. After a few hours of high winds and blinding rain, the power shuts off all throughout your neighborhood! What do you do?

Here at Foulks Southern Air Heating & Cooling, we’re no strangers to situations like this and the negative effects of power outages. That’s why we offer all kinds of electrical services, such as rewiring appointments, whole-home generator installations and electrical repairs. Being prepared for electrical mishaps can preserve your family’s health and safety and save you money in the long run.

For some reasons why you should consider purchasing a backup generator, read on or browse our website.

A Backup Generator Makes Serious Storms Less Scary

One perk of owning a backup generator is the assurance of power no matter the weather. These devices can:

  • Create electricity for your AC, heater, computer, refrigerator and other household appliances.
  • Function safely and efficiently regardless of wind, rain, ice or snow.
  • Protect you and your family from damaging power surges and other dangerous electrical fluctuations.

Even on days when your house is empty and a storm hits, backup generators can reduce the risk of theft and burglary by keeping your security systems functioning properly. Don’t wait until an emergency occurs to consider purchasing one of these devices. Chat with one of our electrical experts today and see if a backup generator is a good investment for you.

Backup Generators Are Dependable And Easy To Use

When it comes to maintaining the structural integrity of your home and keeping your family comfy, backup generators are a helpful tool. Severe precipitation, strong winds and other nasty weather can cause long-lasting electrical damage that could take weeks to fix. Power outages often leave homeowners to deal with pipes bursting, sump pumps breaking down and overall appliance failure.

Owning a backup generator allows you and your family to have a dependable source of power that is simple to operate. You no longer have to worry about food spoiling in the refrigerator and freezer or your basement flooding when you have a generator to keep your household functioning properly!

Backup Generators Boost Your Home’s Value

Did you know that backup generators can increase the value of your property? For homeowners looking to sell soon, purchasing a backup generator can make your household more marketable to potential buyers. This appliance can also reduce your monthly home insurance payments and is a great return on investment!

Though the initial cost of a whole-home backup generator can feel like a large investment, these handy devices are worth the temporary expense.

Professional & Very Courteous

The HVAC System stopped when my Generator quit. When restarting the generator, the AC did not restart. Manuel came out, checked the entire system & got it working in 20 minutes. He was brilliant, professional & very courteous. I’ve use this company for over 25 years & have always been completely satisfied with their service.
