Don’t Get Left In The Dark

Posted on: July 9, 2015

Summertime is notorious for severe storms that often lead to power outages and sometimes even blackouts. Will you be prepared the next time one strikes? Standby generators can power your home for days after the power goes out, but how do you know if it’s worth the investment?

What is a Standby Generator?

You may be more familiar with portable generators – they are sold at most home improvement stores throughout the country. But unlike portable generators, standby generators are installed permanently on a concrete slab and can provide uninterrupted backup for extended periods of time.

Do They Come in Different Sizes?

They do. There are smaller, air-cooled units that control just a few circuits at a time and then there are large, liquid-cooled models that can comfortably power an entire home. The larger the generator, the more expensive they are so you should determine your needs before making a purchase. Keep in mind that homeowners should not install standby generators, they should always be installed by professionals – and that’s where we come in!

For more information about standby generators, contact the experts at ABC. And remember, severe storms often come without warning! Are you prepared?
