Being a homeowner means that you always need to be prepared for the unexpected. It's not just important to make sure that your property is protected , but you'll need to protect your family as well. Natural disasters can happen at any time, and most of the time, it's totally unpredictable. They can easily leave you without power, and that can cause you and your family's life to grind to a complete halt. Investing into a generator for your home can allow you to maintain the the safety and comfort of your home, even when local electricity fails temporarily.If you and your family use a large amount of electrical equipment, and you'd need access to it during an emergency, you will need a generator with a higher capacity. Investing in a power generator that will provide your home with enough wattage plus a little more will ensure that you're fully equipped to maintain your home's levels of comfort and security during an emergency situation.
An automatic backup system (standby generator) is a back-up electrical system that operates automatically. Within seconds of a utility outage an automatic transfer switch senses the power loss, commands the generator to start and then transfers the electrical load to the generator. The standby generator begins supplying power to the circuits. After utility power returns, the automatic transfer switch transfers the electrical load back to the utility and signals the standby generator to shut off. It then returns to standby mode where it awaits the next outage. To ensure a proper response to an outage, a standby generator runs weekly self-tests. Most units run on gasoline, diesel, natural gas or liquid propane gas.
Residential standby generators are increasingly common, providing backup electrical power to HVAC systems, security systems, and household appliances such as refrigerators, stoves, and water heaters.
Varieties of Power Generators
There are two main types of generators: a standby unit, and a portable model. If you have the space and the budget, a standby unit is your best option. Our power generator technicians can professionally install your standby generator, so it will be available and ready to turn on as soon as the power in your home goes out. If you don't have the space, or if you'd prefer something you can move around to different places, you may want to choose the portable model. We can help you decide which type of generator is best for your needs and your home, and we can keep them professionally maintained so that they're ready when anything may occur.
Power Generator Fuels
Most power generators run on gasoline, mostly because it's one of the cheapest and most readily available fuels. However, there are models that run on diesel, natural gas or propane. Your decision for what sort of generator to get should be based on your budget and what you'll need or have access to in the event of an emergency. Our power generator technicians can help you with the decision and give you the specifics of different models. After your purchase and installation, we can also make sure that your power generator is well-maintained, and we can take care of any repairs that your new generator may need at any time.Some Benefits and Features of a GENERAC Generator
