Five Reasons to Consider a Backup Generator

Vito Services Logo Color


March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb. Finally, you can start to see summer on the horizon. Think outdoor picnics, trips to the beach and that much-needed summer vacation.

In a way, Mother Nature is just like us. As we venture outdoors and start to feel rejuvenated during the summertime, Mother Nature reawakens and unleashes a wave of summer storms. One second you're hosting a barbecue in the sunshine and the next you're sitting indoors waiting for the power to come back on.

Even though the storm lasts just a few minutes, power outages can last hours. That's when Vito Services can help. In addition to our HVAC services in Rockville, MD, we offer industry-leading generators for customers across the tri-state area. With a reliable standby generator, you can put the power back in your hands once and for all!


Many homeowners are hesitant to purchase generators because of the upfront investment. While we understand this, we also know these systems can make a world of difference for your safety, comfort and convenience. Here are five important reasons why you might want to consider a generator if your home loses power frequently:

  1. Your sump pump will power through the storm.
    Primary sump pumps are connected to your electrical system. So if the power stops working, so does your sump pump. With a dependable generator, you won't need to worry about your basement or crawl space flooding in the event of a power outage.
  1. Your technology will keep running.
    If you work remotely, you can't afford to lose valuable work time over a power outage. As soon as your generator detects a problem, it will automatically turn on to power your computer, printer and other technology.
  1. Your property will remain secure.
    Unlit homes and businesses can attract intruders. Your generator will do more than just keep the power on. It will let everyone know that the area is occupied and protected. The generator will keep your security system running so your property will remain safe.
  1. Your business operations can continue uninterrupted.
    It's true what they say in the business world: Time is money. Don't let a fast-moving storm result in hours of lost profits for your business. With a standby generator, the power will be restored almost immediately. This means your employees won't be distracted and, more importantly, your customers won't be turned away.
  1. You can preserve perishables.
    A fridge full of food is something you'd never want to waste. But this is exactly what can happen after a summer power outage. Unfortunately, you can't use the outdoors as a makeshift fridge like you would in the winter. With a generator, you can keep your fridge up and running to preserve all of your perishables, including any important medicine that needs to be refrigerated.


The brand of your generator is just as important as the product itself. Vito Services partners with Honeywell to offer customers the most-efficient, reliable systems the industry can offer. These systems offer a number of advantages, including:

  • Automatic operation
  • RhinocoatÔ finish and outstanding durability
  • Affordability
  • Mobile LinkÔ technology—Check the status of your generator from your smartphone, computer or tablet
  • …And more!
