Home Values: In most cases, having a generator installed not only will it pay for itself but it will increase the value of your home by several thousand dollars. Not to mention the money it can save you in basement repair costs – imagine that there’s a heavy rain and your sump pump has stopped working because you’ve lost power!

Generators can be extremely attractive to an informed buyer. In fact, many new home builders are now offering backup power systems as an optional item.
