Keeping the Lights on During Severe Weather

June 11, 2019

Businesses of all sizes can be negatively impacted by severe weather, which can pop up across the country during the summer months. Any downtime caused by power outages can cut into your sales and profit margin. Electronic doors, computerized cash registers, online payment systems, detection devices - there are a plethora of items and platforms that can be shut down completely in the event of a power loss. For corporations and small businesses alike, protecting yourself from downtime and lost productivity is crucial. 

In addition to a complete loss of power, power surges themselves can impact computers and technology platforms. Protection for your employees, your physical assets and your client data is essential. One of the best ways to make sure that your business stays up and running and, well, in business is to invest in a backup generator. Generators not only give you an edge over competitors who may be lacking, but they also provide peace of mind. 

There are varying sizes of generators to meet the needs of businesses large and small. Having a professional HVAC technician visit your business, discuss your needs and offer options for size and features can be a big help. Purchasing a generator can be a significant expense. It is important to get a professional estimate and to select only those features that matter most to your business. 

Once you have decided on a back-up generator and it has been installed, you will need to schedule regular maintenance calls. Generators can be a tremendous help during severe storms, providing power and peace of mind. But they do need to be serviced on a regular basis to keep them in optimum condition.
