Added Value for Standby Generator?
DH and I are considering installing a natural gas powered standby generator for our home. We have not had a power outage longer than three hours in the seven years we've lived here, but we had three-day outages twice in our former home 15 miles to the south. (Once in summer, once in winter -- when we had to drain the pipes and decamp to a hotel.)
I'm not sure we NEED a standby generator. Power here is under ground. Prior home power was above ground, and we were on a circuit that failed frequently and was so small that we were always last on the repair list.
Anyway...back to the reason for the post: Is having a generator of any added value when selling? (Bids are running around $7K to install.)
