One question we’re asked all the time is when’s the best time to Install a Standby Home Generator? You might get a different answer depending on who you ask, but it really comes down to where you live. Here in Connecticut, we’re susceptible to hurricanes from June until the end of November.

Your best bet for buying a Generator in time for Hurricane Season is early Spring but one thing is for certain: the absolute worst time to buy a generator is shortly before, during, or immediately after a major storm.

The Hurricane Scenario

Consider the following scenario. It’s been raining non-stop for more than 24 hours. The wind is howling and there’s flash flooding on nearby main streets. The wind breaks some tree branches and they come crashing down on a power line. The power goes out and you scramble to find a flashlight.

The biggest stressor during a power outage is not knowing when the power will turn back on. It doesn’t have to be like this though. If you have a standby generator with an automatic transfer switch, your lights and appliances will turn back on within seconds.

The Worst Time to Buy

Waiting to buy a generator once the storm has hit the map is really a terrible time. Not only is demand high, but you also have to take into consideration the generator installation process.

The Best Time to Buy

The best time to buy a generator is right now. In fact, there is no better time than the present. It’s always best to be over prepared then scurry around in worry when the next storm hits. Hurricanes are inevitable and a part of nature. They’re always going to happen, it’s just a matter of when they’re going to hit our area. It can be very risky to not take preventative measures to keep the power on in your home.
