How Much Money Will I Save From Battery Backups?
The money saved depends on the value and the contents of your basement. You will get the most out of your battery backup sump pump if you are protecting valuables and/or a finished basement. If you have paid a contractor to finish your basement, you’ll get even more out of it.
Most homeowners spend between $1,500 and $4,200 on basement flooring alone. And then there are the numerous amenities that are often located in the basement. Estimated costs for replacement include:
- Washing Machine/Dryer – $600 – $3,000
- Hot Water Heater – $1,000 – $3,000
- Furnace – $2,000 – $6,000
- Pool Table – $1,000 and up
It adds up quickly when you consider everything that might get damaged in a flood.
However expensive your basement or its contents, there is also a large convenience factor. It could take a very long time to get your basement back to how it was.
