Why a Whole Home Generator Is a Good Idea
If the fact that a whole home generator protects your home from losing power in the event of an emergency situation isn’t enough to convince you that it’s a good idea to invest in one, here are a few additional benefits of these life-saving devices.
- Protection Against Surges: When power is lost and then turned back on, systems often become overwhelmed as every appliance in your neighborhood is being cut on at once. A backup generator is a great way to protect your home against surges and dangerous voltage fluctuations.
- Peace Of Mind: Nothing is worse than losing power unexpectedly. Not being able to use a refrigerator, blow dryer, and even an AC or heater during extreme temperatures is a sure way to ruin anyone’s day.
- Protection During Blackout: As stated above, the only protection from extreme weather disasters or events such as a blackout, is in a backup house generator. Give us a call today and ask about our whole home generator installation services.
Choosing the Right System for Your Home
With so many options available on the market today, choosing the right system for your home can be overwhelming. Knowing what to look for in a whole house generator is a great way to relieve stress from the decision making process. Some of the components you should be knowledgeable about when it comes to choosing the right system include:
- Fuel Type: One of the most important steps in selecting the right generator for your home is choosing which fuel source you’re going to need. Unlike small standby generators that can only use natural gas or propane, whole-home generators also have a diesel option which makes power more accessible.
- Size: When selecting your whole house generator, it’s important to know which size you’re going to need as well as the requirements of the home’s electrical appliances. For those looking for an inexpensive, simple backup system, a 22kW is a great fit. If you’re looking for something more advanced, a 27-36kW is an option that replaces up to 75% of amps coming into your electrical panel. If you want a generator that backups the entire house, a 48kW generator is the best option for your home.
- Cost: Just like with any other investment, cost plays a part in choosing the right system for your home. When we offer our installation services, we generally provide you with multiple options, ensuring you get a system that works for your budget.
