Backup power is important not only in business establishments but also in homes. This is especially so if people are experiencing man-made or natural power cuts.
During these unfortunate times, people need a source of energy to power appliances that are important in running their home or business, heaters, fridges, ovens, tills or computers to name a few.
If you want to make sure that your home or business are equipped to carry on in the event of a power cut, a standby generator is the answer.
Generators bring comfort when people have no way of determining how long the power will be down
HGI have been manufacturing power equipment for over 32 years and have installed many thousands of standby generators over the years.
Over the past 24 months alone, HGI have installed over 1300 standby generators for both domestic and commercial applications with at least one installation in every county and postcode area throughout the UK.
Lots of businesses use generators to make sure they can carry on as normal in case of power loss. But you might be asking yourself, who needs a generator at home?
The answer is that anyone who uses mains power at home might need a generator, in the event that they require continued use during a power cut.
If you live in an area prone to severe weather, such as floods or storms, you might experience natural power cuts more frequently than many other homes in the country. Waiting to get on with what you were doing again each time is a bore.
A full generator system means that power can be restored to your whole property within 30 seconds, so you won’t need to face massive interruptions to daily life.
Severe weather also means that you can lose power for a lot longer than those who live in other areas. Sometimes, going without powers for days at a time is inconceivable. In this case, a home generator will make your life far easier, as you won’t have to rely on authorities to fix the problem before you can use appliances again.
Business owners with a home office
People who rely on electrical appliances in their homes to make a living should also consider using a standby generator. Most of those who work from home need their computer to run consistently each day, along with printers, scanners and home telephones.
Even less obvious appliances are often essential. For example, self-employed caterers will rely on fridges and electric ovens to be available at all times. Whatever you do, if you run a business from home, a power cut is likely to spell disaster.
Even if you just hate the thought of having your favourite TV programme interrupted, or sitting in the dark and waiting for the power to return, a home generator is a great way to prevent irritating power losses.
