All you Need to Know about Home Backup Power Generators

By Katie Clarke – Marketing Associate

Year over year, our reliance on power and electricity has grown and now more than ever, between working from home, schooling from home and in general, being home much more; this reliance has sky-rocketed. Whether it be unexpected or anticipated storms and outages, don’t get caught in the dark and lease your home generator!
Considering the large upfront costs of generators, it can be a difficult choice. With leasing, the upfront cost isn’t a variable as Grand HVAC Leasing™ requires NO money down.

Your future generator has a lifespan ranging from 10-40 years and once you’re secured in a lease, you’ll be completely protected from maintenance costs, repair costs and future upgrade costs. All that’s left is worry-free™ electricity!


If you currently own a generator near the end of it’s lifespan, it may be hard to distinguish when it’s time to upgrade. Signs of replacing may include:

  • Higher fuel costs: Are you noticing higher than usual energy bills or fuel costs?
  • Trouble starting: As home backup power generators are supposed to automatically start when your power is out, have you noticed any variance with this?
  • Inconsistent performance:Are you noticing your generator isn’t powering everything that it previously did?
  • Emitting too much carbon monoxide: When owning a generator it’s essential to consistently monitor the carbon monoxide levels, have you noticed the amount rising?
  • Consistent need of repairs:With leasing, you won’t have to worry about any repair costs!


Two common types of generators available are Home Backup Power and Inverter generators. Your decision between the two could depend on the size of your home, your power requirements, your needs and how you’d like your power to be generated.

Grand HVAC Leasing™ is here to help you every step of the way and if you’d like to speak to a representative to help in your decision, contact us today!
