How A Backup Generator Can Protect You and Your Family


Picture this: A huge storm rolls through town. The power flickers, and then fails. Now what? Hours pass and it’s not clear when the power will return. This is exactly the moment you’ll be glad you have a backup generator. When you have a generator, you can protect your home and your family.

Provides Extra Support for Those Who Need It Most

A short power outage is an inconvenience for most people. But for others, it can be much more serious. Perhaps you rely on a medication that requires constant refrigeration. Or, you might have a family member who can’t stay in the heat for very long. Maybe you need to run medical equipment like oxygen generators, stairlifts, electric beds, or glucose monitors to maintain the health and safety of a family member. When you have a generator from BriteBox, that’s sized correctly for your needs, you will have access to the power you need to keep your critical systems running when the power goes out.

Maintains Quality of Life at Home

Whenever there’s a major weather event causing power outages, local authorities often ask people to clear off the roads to keep residents safe and allow needed repairs to happen as quickly as possible. But if the temperature in your home is becoming more uncomfortable by the minute, you might not be able to stay. Even if the situation isn’t so dire, spending a long period of time without your kitchen, utility room, home office, or entertainment centers can be very frustrating. If you are forced out of your home, expect additional costs and the inconvenience of relocating to temporary housing. With a backup generator, you can stay off the roads and maintain the level of comfort you’re used to having at home. Generators have the power to run:

  • Kitchen Appliances
  • Medical Equipment
  • Air Conditioning and Heating
  • Hot Water Heaters
  • Home Office Equipment
  • Sump Pumps

In short, you can stay comfortable and protect your home while the authorities work on getting the power back.

First Steps In Buying a Generator

Before you buy a generator, think about how you want to use it. What’s most important? Do you want to keep your fridge running? What about air conditioning or heat? Will you have access to charge your laptop and phone? The process of correctly sizing your generator calls for you to answer all these questions. That way, when the lights go out, you can do more than just sit there and eat all the ice cream before it melts. You’ll have a plan.
