What Happens When You Don’t Have an Automatic Home Backup Power Generator in Atlanta, Georgia

Situated in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains of northwest Georgia,  five hours north of the Gulf of Mexico, Atlanta is the Southeast’s center of commerce and transportation, with a fast-growing metro area that covers 29 counties.  Like most cities in the Southeast, Atlanta’s climate is classified as subtropical, meaning hot, humid summers and mild winters. But If you are among the 6 million people who live here, you know that on a day-to-day basis,  this covers an extremely wide range of temperatures and types of weather.

Take the past decade, for example. At least three major winter storms have paralyzed the region, stranding motorists in their cars, and knocking out power to hundreds of thousands of homes for nearly a week.  Even in milder winters, there’s always some snow and ice, but with recent climate shifts, February daytime temperatures now range from sub-freezing to almost 80 degrees. Spring can bring mild sunny days — or thunderstorms, hail, and tornadoes. Every year,  severe weather,  utility equipment failures, and run-of-the-mill accidents knock out power somewhere in the Atlanta Metro region. 

But when it comes to severe weather and crippling power outages in Atlanta, peak hurricane season wins hands-down. Even though Atlanta is 300 miles inland, it feels the punch of almost every hurricane or tropical storm that lands along the Florida Gulf Coast.

None of us will forget how Hurricane Zeta pushed through Atlanta as a tropical storm before dawn on October 29, 2020, with high winds and heavy rains, dropping trees onto homes, powerlines, and closing off roads across the Atlanta Metro region.  By 7:30 a.m. almost 1 million people were without power, many for up to four days.  Schools were canceled and many early voting sites couldn’t open or had to shut down early.  By mid-morning more than 140 accidents blocked roads and interstate ramps, and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport was closed. The entire Atlanta Metro area came to a standstill.

When the power goes out unexpectedly, it doesn’t take too long for your food, supplies, and good humor to run low. If you don’t have a backup generator, you’ve got only a few options. You can wait for power to come back on — no cooking, no refrigeration, no HVAC, no TV, no phone chargers, and possibly no water. Or, depending on how widespread the outage is and how much phone power you still have, you might be able to hunt down a hotel room or find a kind-hearted friend or family member with power if you can get yourself and your family there – meaning if roads en route aren’t blocked by fallen trees, downed power lines or accidents.

You can’t change the weather but, before the next season brings new weather and power outage challenges,  you can explore an altogether better option– uninterrupted power with a Generac automatic home backup generator from Canter Power Solutions.

When You’ve Got An Automatic Backup Generator in Atlanta

Think about how your life would change if you never had to worry about being without power in Atlanta – ever again. If the power goes out – for any reason – you can relax in the comfort and protection of your own home.  Your life goes on as normal,  even if power is out for an extended period. 

Whether it’s a major storm, grid overload, or a sunny day blip, your home backup generator automatically turns itself on within just 15 seconds after your home’s power goes off — and it stays on until utility service is restored.  Even if the power goes out while you’re still inching your way home in traffic along interstate 285, I-85, or waiting for an accident to be cleared at the Peachtree Street/Buford Highway intersection, you don’t have to worry.  Your generator will start up automatically and run everything you count on in your house, just as if you were there. 

Imagine this scenario next time the power goes off in Atlanta. 

Whether you live in Buckhead, over in Kennesaw, or in any of the 29 counties that make up the Atlanta Metro area, your lights and power are ON,  even if all your neighbors’  homes are dark.  You can heat and cool your home, cook, wash dishes and clothes, bathe, charge your phones and computers and keep your refrigerated and frozen food safe. And, if you count on power to keep medicines cool or operate assistive equipment, you’re covered.

Your whole family can watch TV, listen to music, read books, play games, and use computers and phones to stay in contact with your larger world. Instead of rationing candles and flashlights, you can stay up after dark doing what you want and need to do. With a Generac whole home backup generator, you can even select to run only certain appliances during a power outage if you prefer. The choice is 100% up to you

Our Atlanta Clients Enjoy Peace of Mind

When dangerous storms or other power outages happen in the Atlanta Metro area, your life can quickly get complicated and stressful.  School, work, and transportation schedules are disrupted. You worry when you lose contact with family and friends — those who count on you, or those you count on — even if it’s just temporary.  

It’s at times like this that you really appreciate being in your own home, sleeping in your own bed, eating the food you like, and relaxing with your favorite TV programs, books, and family, not to mention having phone and internet service to keep up with school or work and to check in with family and friends. Keeping up with closings and conditions in and around  Atlanta helps everyone in your household feel more at ease and connected.
