These systems are fantastic resources to utilize during extreme weather conditions that can cause your home to lose power.

How to Choose the Right Generator
Choosing the right generator that will work for your home can be difficult. There are many different types and sizes of generators. Our experts in the field will be able to answer any questions or concerns you may have when installing a generator for your home. There are several things that you need to take into consideration when shopping for the right generator. Our electricians ask that you keep in mind the following suggestions:
- Compile a list of appliances that you know you will need if the power to your home were to go out for an extended period
- Make sure that the generator that you choose for your home has enough power to operate your fridge and keep your food cold
- Familiarize yourself with how specific units work and if they will be capable of the amount of usage that you need during a power outage
- Make sure the generator wattage is a good amount for the appliances you will be running from it
Some customers believe one generator will be enough for them; however, this is only sometimes the case. It is always better to be safe than sorry and have a standby generator in case of any accidents. A standby generator can benefit you if you experience blackouts that last for long periods. This will ensure that you are prepared for the next power outage and won’t be taken by surprise when the lights go out.
The Benefits of Having a Whole House Generator
Going through a power outage can be very stressful and even more overwhelming if it happens in the middle of a heatwave. A generator that will restore power to your entire home is a fantastic way to help you and your family stay cool all summer, even if the power is out. With today’s technological advancements, the benefits are endless with newer generators that we offer to our customers.
When you install a whole-house generator, you won’t have to worry about running outside in inclement weather to start up that old portable generator. A whole-house generator will begin to work automatically after it detects that your home is without power, which will give you peace of mind knowing that your family is safe and sound. A whole-house generator improves safety by not producing as many hazardous fumes as portable generators.
