Installed one right after a extended power loss that caused us to lose 3 chest freezers of beef and pork just after we paid for it and it was delievered.

whole house powered by natural gas was a wise investment 10 years ago, it has paid for itself many times over


Years ago, an oil delivery company in our town had a sign on it's roof that they rented to a natural gas company. It said, "Go modern, go gas!". The day after it was put up, it said, "Go modern, go gas, go BOOM!" We suspected the oil company changed the sign. :lol:

That's a true story, by the way.

Gee what is that? I thought a UPS WAS a battery backup.
Shows what I know I guess.


He most likely meant an APC "Back-Ups", which is one line of APC UPS units.

I use to pry the speakers off all of mine. Pliers and a gentle twist. Worked every time. The new ones are just too easy to hook up to a computer and disable the speaker that way though.

A hammer works for that too....but your results might just be different. :D

I've used the supplied PowerChute or PowerPanel software to turn off the beeps on all my APC and CyberPower UPS's here. The beeping when AC is lost doesn't bother me (save for the one in the bedroom), but drives my greyhound nuts.
