A power plan will prepare you for when inevitable power outages or anomalies occur. Having a power plan can save you thousands of dollars in equipment repairs, allow the equipment you purchase to perform at its best, and provide you maximum enjoyment and peace of mind.
Microprocessors are extremely vulnerable to power inconsistencies, really harming the longevity of electronics and increasing issues with an entire system all the way down the line. With all the sensitive microprocessors we’re putting into modern homes, (lighting control, security, networking equipment, entertainment, control systems), and the lifestyle consequences of a microprocessor failure, the need for high-quality consistent power is greater than ever.
So, everyone who is building or remodeling a residence should be asked: “What is the power plan for this project?”
You might be asking yourself, “What is a power plan?”
It is a plan that will provide appropriate levels of protection and backup for the critical devices in your residence or office. The following is an example:
LEVEL THREE BACKUP
Microprocessor intensive systems or devices are very susceptible to voltage sags and surges and would be a severe lifestyle inconvenience should they malfunction or fail. These are critical functions and they should be always protected. A RoseWater device is best suited for this application.
Working with your clients to create a power plan to protect the installed products will ensure that everything you put in the project will function properly, last longer and prevent truck rolls. Most importantly it creates a very satisfied client.
BACKUP SOLUTION: HUB SB20
LEVEL TWO BACKUP
Devices that would create a greater lifestyle interruption in long-term outages but are not microprocessor intensive. A generator is best suited to protect these types of devices because although the power from a generator is inherently ‘dirty’, it won’t affect these devices as much.
• Air conditioning/temp. control
• Most kitchen appliances
BACKUP SOLUTION: GENERATOR
LEVEL ONE BACKUP
Protecting systems and devices that are not microprocessor intensive and would only create a minor inconvenience in the case of malfunction or long-term outages. The client may not choose to backup or protect these systems or devices.
• Most wall outlets
• Outdoor lighting
• Pool equipment
• Outdoor entertainment
