A standard home will experience a power outage during a major storm or power line mishap. During this time of year we are at a high risk for power outages caused by ice and snowstorms. The initially concern here is the cold temperatures, but these power outages can last anywhere from a few hours to several days. Beyond the risk of cold temperatures, the lack of power can lead to even bigger safety and health concerns. Not only are homes affected by these power outages, medical offices can experience a much bigger devastation.
Medical offices rely on power for almost everything they do. Without power, medical staff wouldn’t be able to communicate with their patients, access medical records or perform procedures. If any medical office doesn’t have access to power they wouldn’t be able to serve their patients in a safe and healthy environment. This could be devastating to any medical office and all of the patients involved, particularly in a smaller town with little access to other medical providers.
The solution to this problem is investing in a generator. All medical offices can benefit from having a generator to back-up their power in the case of a power outage. Patients are relying on their medical practitioners to keep them in a safe and healthy environment, and a generator can help them do that no matter the weather or power situation. Additionally, if your office is capable of moving your patients to another functioning office, in the meantime, refrigerated medicine and machinery is still at risk. No matter the size of your office, power is a must.
Regardless of whether you own your building or rent your space, you have the capability of having a generator. For medical offices who rent from their building, a generator can move with you. Most generator businesses will move the generator for you, so it takes the stress off of your business. If you own your space and decide to sell it, a generator can significantly increase your property value for corporate buyers. They see a generator as an asset to their business, and it could make the deal. If you are still not convinced that a generator is right for your medical business, there are a few other things you should know.
If your business does install a generator you then qualify for a tax refund, which can cut down on the costs of installation. Additionally, the costs of losing business and medical supplies during power outages are things to consider when assessing the initial costs of buying a generator. Overall, it is all about your patients and their trust. When you have a generator to back-up your power– your patients can trust that no matter what your business will always work to maintain their health and safety.
Now that you see the major benefits about investing in a generator for your medical business, here’s a little more information about generators:
How to buy~
• If you have decided to buy a generator for your medical business then first do your research.
• Contact a generator business near you for an estimate and more information about their process.
• A generator business, like Georgia Generator, will help you in the buying process as well as install your generator.
• Once you have had your generator install, they will service your generator to make sure it is always ready to provide you power when you need it.
• Additionally, if you decide to move locations then most generator companies will move it to your next location.
How they run~
• Seconds after there is a power outage your generator will automatically kick in and start producing power for your office.
• Then a couple seconds later your designated emergency circuits will have full restored power.
• After that, the generator will monitor for your utility power to start working again. If it doesn’t your generator will continue to provide your power. If you do regain utility power then the automatic transfer switch will safely transfer the power back to utility and will go into a cool down mode.
• Once the power outage is completely over and your building is back to its utility power, then the generator will shut down and wait for the next mishap.
