What are the problems associated with power outages that make it such an important addition to your home?

There are a number of problems and inconveniences that come with a power outage, but one of the most damaging and costly issues is a sump pump failure. It’s not uncommon for a home to flood as a result of an inoperable sump pump, especially during heavy storms. Backup generators will prevent your sump pump from ever losing power, potentially saving you a fortune in flood damages.

Another common problem we see in power outages that occur during a cold, Massachusetts winter is frozen and burst pipes. Being stuck without heat due to a power outage is uncomfortable enough, but add on the fact that it puts your pipes at risk for bursting and potentially causing a significant amount of water damage, and a simple power outage could lead to the need for major home renovations.

Let T. K. Lyden Electric & Generator help you with your power needs and you'll never be left powerless again! Call us today for available models, pricing and to schedule your FREE generator installation consultation.

When you choose us for your generator installation, you will work directly with our Project Manager, Robert H. Thompson, who is involved in every sale of Generac, Kohler and Briggs & Stratton Generators.
