Are there ways to get power without electricity to your appliances?
There are a couple of different ways this can be accomplished. However, we are going to focus on one specific way, and that is how to utilize a battery backup system. Battery backups allow specific appliances, tankless water heaters, gas appliances, and even electronics to keep running during times of a power outage. Depending on what appliances you have the battery backup running to, you can expect anywhere from five to 13 hours of continuous use. If you were to use the battery backup specifically for your water tank heater in conjunction with a flow and temperature sensor, you can have heated running water for up to seven days!
Battery Backups Compared for Gas Appliances
As you can see, battery backups provide some key benefits and ways to get power without electricity to your appliances. Sometimes referred to as a UPS (Uninterrupted Power Source), you can always have hot water during times of a blackout with a backup battery. There are other options such as power inverters or UPS for computers, but those only limit you to one hour of use before you lose all the battery juice. Another option is to have a backup generator. However, not only are they too loud to operate inside a home, these backup generators often have their limitations due to their electricity output conditions. Yes, you can power nearly anything with a generator, but you consistently have to replace the fuel source to ensure your appliances are always running, additionally you are running the risk of providing your expensive tankless water heater with low quality electricity condition which will cause more expensive repairs. Not only are generators costly regarding the fuel source, but they’re significantly more expensive compared to a battery backup system. Utilizing a device such as the Hugo Battery Backup System will allow your home to continuously have hot running water for several days and can provide your gas appliances with extensive continued use as well. Not only will you continue to have quality running power, but it won’t cost you an arm and a leg.
