Top 5 Benefits of Installing a Home Standby Generator in the DC Metro

Standby generator outside of home

Power outages are stressful, inconvenient, and often dangerous. The DC Metro area is subject to coastal storms and northeast winters, so you should always be prepared for power outages and the challenges that come with them.

The most reliable way to protect your home and ensure your safety during a power outage is with a standby generator.

The benefits of installing a whole-home backup power supply system include:

Power for Your Essentials

One of the primary benefits of a whole-home generator is that it provides an uninterrupted power supply to your entire home during a blackout. This means you won’t experience disruptions in essentials, such as:

  • Medical devices and equipment
  • Lighting
  • Refrigeration
  • Phone charging
  • And more

A generator ensures that you can continue your daily activities without major inconveniences.

Safety & Security

Power outages can compromise the safety and security of your home.

Critical systems such as security alarms, surveillance cameras, and automatic locks can operate normally with a whole-home generator.

This ensures the safety of your family and property.

Sustained Comfort

Standby generators can maintain the operation of systems like air conditioners, heating systems, water heaters, and more, ensuring your comfort and convenience during power outages.

This is especially crucial during extreme weather conditions when maintaining a comfortable indoor environment is essential.

Protection for Electronics & Appliances

Power fluctuations and surges can damage sensitive electronics such as televisions, computers, dishwashers, and more.

A whole-home generator with built-in surge protection helps safeguard your devices and appliances, preventing potential damage and the need for expensive repairs or replacements.

Automatic Power

Power outages happen unexpectedly, making accessing and setting up a portable generator difficult and unsafe.

Whole-home generators are on the ready. When the power goes out, a transfer switch turns your generator on so there’s no interruption in power, even for an extended period.

The peace of mind and reliability of a whole-home unit make it a worthwhile investment for DC Metro Area homes.

What Our Clients Are Saying
testimonial_image The tech was at my home less than 10 minutes and gone within 20 minutes due to having my A/C up and running. I really appreciate his response to my home and working with my son due to me being out of town, but we spoke on the phone.
testimonial_image The technician arrived promptly, wore a mask, was very courteous and professional. I am generally very satisfied with service by United Air Temp. In addition to good service (they repair well), it is easy to speak to a person, and promptly. Thank you.
testimonial_image Great service! I called because I was under the impression the AC was not working upstairs. Someone came on the same day, checked out the system, and ensured everything was working. He was polite, thorough, and friendly.
testimonial_image Tech was very attentive and professional. He went out his way to explain everything to me as he was doing it. I appreciated him keeping me informed.
testimonial_image The service technician was awesome! He spent the extra time necessary to ensure the leak in our system was fixed, the system fully recharged and everything was functioning as it should. He was extremely thorough and very professional. We are extremely pleased with the result!
