Generators for Emergency Power?
If you live in an area that has frequent power outages due to the weather, you may wish to consider power generators as a way to get electricity in your home when the power is out. These generators are not only useful for power outages. They can also be used to give power to tools or other items outside of the home that are too far away for an extension cord.

If I live in an area that loses power a lot in the winter, would it be worthwhile to look into standby generators?
Whether you should purchase a generator depends on your needs. If you have only adults in the house, you are probably accustomed to power outages in the winter. If you have small kids, having a stand-by power source may come in handy. The good thing about power outages in the winter is that food (freezer) can be stored outside to prevent loss. If you have an alternate source of heat (fireplace, stove) and are prepared for outages (food, water, etc.) you might not need a generator. The decision is one that you have to weigh on your own.
