THE BEST WAY TO DEAL WITH A POTENTIAL EMERGENCY IS TO REMOVE THE POSSIBILITY OF IT EVER HAPPENING.
The question isn’t if you need a generator, but rather which size you need. South Shore living is a lot less convenient when there’s no heat, dishwasher or lights to make it up the stairs.
You can always pick up a portable generator from Home Depot or the like, but if you want a more reliable solution for the whole house, SIGMA suggests a Generac Whole House Generator.
Jack McInnis, of Scituate loves his Whole House Generator so much he recommends it to all his friends—we’ve installed 6 through him. He says, “I couldn’t speak more highly of everyone at SIGMA, they are all nice, professional and go the extra mile. As a local business owner, four days with no electricity would be devastating. Jeremy called me, and then showed up at my door the night of the storm to check on my system the other night. The system is awesome, and the service is amazing, and that’s all I could ask for. Everyone I’ve recommended them to has nothing but great things to say. ”
Another thing to think about is mom and dad, you’ll want to make sure there’s a Whole House Generator if they’re going to have home health care. The last thing you want is their electricity to go down.
A whole house generator starts at around $10k. This unit will supply the heat or air conditioning, refrigerator, plus a few main rooms in the home. The $14k unit will include all the $10k does, plus the garage doors and bedrooms. The premier system comes in around $20k. It will take care of every little thing, even the hot tub!
Every Wednesday our customer’s generators perform a self test. Our install package includes a wall mounted remote sensor with a status light. Flashing Green means you’re good to go. Yellow means you need service. Red means you have a problem, and should call us right away.
We suggest a Preventative Maintenance Service Check Up on your Generator every one to two years, depending on how much use it gets.
