Should First-time Homebuyers Shop for Generators too?

October 14, 2020

First-time homebuyers have a lot on their plate as it is. Searching for the perfect home to fit their family’s needs is already a pretty daunting task. Should they really add more to their to-do list?


Having constant, steady power is an extremely important aspect of homeownership that you may not even be thinking about right away. A lot of people have transitioned to working from home, which means if they lose power, they could also lose a paycheck. So, if keeping the power on in your new home is something that’s important to you, it’s best to get it dealt with right away.

Because there are so many details about your new home that you’ll be finding out during the homebuying process, you can apply that information to your home generator search as well. You’ll already know the square footage of your home off the top of your head, and you’ll have in mind, the appliances that are a necessity to you, so shopping for a backup generator will be much easier.

If your new home is a fixer-upper or if there are just a few little upgrades you want to have done, it’s the perfect time to go ahead and have someone install an automatic transfer switch and a backup power source. The certified generator technician can communicate with the other workers you may already have on-site to get your generator installed correctly. Everyone will be working together, which will make it easier for you.

We know the home buying process is stressful and taking that breath of fresh air after you’re comfortably moved in is probably one of the best feelings that exist. Why not get everything settled up front, including your backup power source for your home?
