It has happened to all of us. Just when we seem to need it most, the lights begin to flicker and the power goes out from a storm or other mishap. Losing power cannot only be a nuisance, but can provide real struggles and even safety issues within the home.


Problems resulting from lost power certainly range in severity, as we all know. Food can begin to spoil in refrigerators or freezers. Cell phones can begin to lose their power without the ability to charge. Furnaces can’t heat the home. Medical equipment requiring electricity won’t function as it is intended. Hot water for cooking, cleaning or showering/bathing isn’t an option. At night, dark houses become dangerous to navigate, especially for elderly individuals. The list goes on and on.


Depending where we live, the type of home in which we live and the types of equipment and systems in our home, these issues can be very, very bad for some when the lights go out.


Luckily, there are great solutions to help you avoid these problems associated with losing power. Standby generators can be great systems in times of need. Whether you just need to power a few essentials or don’t want to skip a beat with any powered unit or appliance, we have generator solutions that are right for you.


So what are the benefits? Simply put – there are a lot. Standby generators provide extremely fast backup power without having to deal with the struggles of gas-powered generators, such as filling them constantly with gas and struggling to pull-start them. Standby generators turn on automatically or with a flip of a switch. Standby generators are also not nearly as noisy as portable units, which is a major nuisance for many when the power goes out.


Standby generators offered and installed by BelRed can run on either natural gas or propane, based on the availability at your home. They come in a wide range of performance models and sizes, so we’re confident in saying that we offer one that will meet the exact needs and specifications of your home.


If you’re interested in exploring installation of a new standby generator, don’t hesitate to reach out. We not only offer purchase and installation, but maintenance of your new standby generator. No matter what, when you work with BelRed you won’t be left in the dark.
