Never get left in the dark
With so much smart technology in your Charlottesville, VA home, you probably enjoy the convenience and ease-of-use every day. So much so that you may not even realize how much a part of your life it’s become. But when the power goes out, you won’t be able to use your favorite systems. That’s why you should consider investing in a home backup power system. Below, we’ve listed three reasons for installing a backup system in your home. Keep reading for more.
Don’t Get Left in the Dark
The first reason is obvious: you don’t want to be left without your home technology for very long. Whether it’s basic but essential systems like lighting and HVAC, or more critical, niche technology like elderly assistance and medical systems, you rely on your technology every day. With a backup power system, you won’t have to worry about those devices failing
Outages can strike without warning and leave you without electricity for days. With a backup power system, you can store what you need and use it when you’re ready. It’s a smart way to add insurance against power outages so you can stay comfortable all year long.
Avoid Dirty Power
What’s dirty power? It’s what happens when you operate your electric at peak hours. When you get home from a long day at the office, you’ll likely turn on the lights, listen to some music, watch some TV, and lower the temperature on your thermostat. The problem is that a lot of other people in your neighborhood are doing the same thing at the same time.
As you can imagine, this puts a lot of strain on your local electrical grid, which can cause a lot of problems for the whole neighborhood. With a backup power system, you can easily store energy during off-peak hours and use what you’ve saved throughout the day. It will help reduce your reliance on the local grid while ensuring that you’re using clean energy more frequently.
Pay Less for Energy
As you avoid more and more dirty power, it’s possible to even save on your energy bill each month. With a backup power system, you can potentially reduce your reliance on the grid so much that it comes out of your monthly electric expenditures.
Of course, there are different types of backup power systems. There are the standard ones, and now, thanks to sonnen, there’s ecoLinx, a smart backup power system. The new backup battery integrates seamlessly with your Savant or Control4 system, helping you reduce your reliance on the grid automatically. Not only that, but it will keep track of peak hours, weather events, and other factors to arbitrate energy for your home automatically — so you won’t lose power for a second.
