If you live in a secluded area or in a neighborhood where you lose power to your home, you should maybe look into getting a whole house generator. There are multiple options to choose from that is right for you and your home depending on price, options, ease of transfer of power and size. With a generator, you have the ability to keep some if not all of your house powered up even when you lose electricity from your local utility provider like BGE. The most important things at a minimum you would want to keep power to would be your heating system, refrigerator, and sump pump especially if your basement takes on a fair amount of water during storms that could potentially quickly flood your basement causing huge amounts of damage to your home. And with an automatic transfer switch, your generator has the ability to start up as soon as it recognizes a loss in power to your home and switch from your incoming electrical service in just a few seconds. And newer generators have wifi which will let you know from a mobile app when the power goes out even if youre not at home. Many people know what is feels like to worry about the consequences of power loss with the threat of an upcoming storm any time of year as a result of ice storms, snowstorms, high wind, heavy rain, and tropical storms.
