Your home is your safe space, your shelter for emergencies and your quarantine zone when your family is sick. Your home contains countless items that require batteries to operate properly, and that you don't want to live without. What happens when you lose power? You want to be able to still live comfortably in your home even when your neighbors have no power. Learn more about all the ways Batteries Plus can help power your home every day and during emergencies.
Sadly, these are all things that I myself learned about early on when I got my first home. While some of these can have wiring inside the home, batteries are sometimes needed to work properly, or at all.
One of the best things you can do for your home and family is to purchase a generator or Goal Zero power station for emergencies. Generators are a great way to ensure that all of your essential needs are met during extended periods of power loss.
Generators come in several sizes and provide your home with power to run necessary home equipment when you are without power. Some even come with wireless starting so you don't have to manually turn the generator on! Batteries Plus carries a large selection of Champion generators to fit any home's power demands.
In many states where power outages are common, new homes are being built with generators in mind, either with them already wired in or at the very least wired to accept a generator. If your home isn't wired to accept a generator, contact your local utility company to have a technician come out and install the necessary equipment to have a generator switch on automatically when the power goes out.
If you are a little less concerned about the major systems in your home and are more worried about keeping your electronics powered during and outage the Goal Zero renewable energy power stations are a fantastic choice to keep your gear running. Goal Zero power stations come in a multitude of sizes to provide enough power for all of your needs. You can even work with an electrician to install the Home Integration Kit so you can quickly switch over to your Goal Zero Power supply when the power goes out.
When the TV remote dies or a smoke detector starts beeping that annoying beep, having a stockpile of batteries is an absolute necessity.
