Do We Need Backup Generators More Than Ever?

If you’re wondering about how to backup your home’s power, then you have come to the right place. A backup generator system from GenTech Generators might be the best solution and precautionary measure in case of an emergency. Power outages aren’t just caused by storms and other common accidents anymore. Overloads, hacking and rolling blackouts are now major factors.

A Backup Generator Will Save You Money and Time

Rolling Blackouts

A rolling blackout happens when the utility intentionally shits off the power in a specific area, turns it on, and then shuts it off again in a different area. These can last 60 to 90 minutes at times, which means you will be without power. Your Cummins Power Generator that you have installed from us will have your back.


Now that the digital world is our life, electrical grids are susceptible to hackers causing a power outage for many different reasons. Foreign hacker groups have in the past, hacked different countries’ electrical grids. A backup generator could be your safety net in case of an emergency like this.


Overloads can happen often if you are trying to draw too much power from a single circuit. An overuse of extension cords, plugging too many appliances in, and using an appliance above the circuit’s amp levels can cause overloads.

Young Families and Elderly Will Benefit

Being a young family with a new house, you never want to have the power go out during a severe storm or electrical grid problem. The refrigerator is usually stocked with all your food for the family, which will eventually go bad during a power outage.

For elderly homeowners, having a generator will allow you to keep warm and have your food stay fresh during a severe storm. This is so important for everyone no matter what your age.

Getting a backup generator installed is a significant investment, but down the road it will save you the stress and time of panicking during a storm or problem. A Backup generator will also increase the value of your home!
