Prepare Your Home With a Generator For the Winter

Being prepared for a crisis is always better than trying to quickly make plans and recover during a frantic situation. Preparing for an Evansville, Indiana winter takes a bit of pre-planning, but it’s worth it in the long run. Winters here are usually very cold and wet, and they can also be very windy. 

Freezing temperatures, wind and wet limbs are never good for power lines. Icy power lines and tree limbs heavy with winter precipitation often mean one thing, a power outage. Although utility crews usually work around the clock to restore power as quickly as possible, there is a solution, so you’ll never have to worry about being without electricity again. Brackett Heating & Air can help by installing a whole-house generator for your Evansville area home.

Is Having a Whole-House Generator Really That Important?

Even the Weather Channel™ can’t predict the weather with 100% accuracy 100% of the time. No one knows which winter storm will cause the power to go out. It may not even be weather related at all. Sometimes car accidents are the culprit. 

Whatever the cause, there are many good reasons for a home generator installation, such as:

  • No power often means no heat. When it’s frigid outside, this is not only uncomfortable, it can be very dangerous if the outage lasts for a couple days or more.
  • If you or your loved ones depend on electricity for medical equipment, a generator ensures your health will not be compromised in the event of a power outage.
  • The appliances you depend on: refrigerators, heat, phones, alarm systems and even computers will keep running with a whole-house generator.
  • Electrical surges when the power is restored will not harm your appliances.

Whole-house generator installations should always be completed by trained professionals. Brackett Heating & Air provides ongoing training for our technicians and installers, and they are NATE certified. You’ll get a quality generator installation and top-notch service after the sale. 

Don’t put your loved ones or your most expensive and valued resources at risk during an unexpected power outage. Call Brackett Heating & Air today, and schedule a no-cost consultation to learn how a home generator can give you peace of mind this winter.
