The ABCs of Electrical - Backup Power Generators

Posted March 19, 2015

Power failures can be more than an inconvenience, they can cause also expensive damage your property. When the power goes out you lose heating and air conditioning, your refrigerator, and sump pump - which can lead to basement flooding during heavy rains.

Types of Home Backup Generators

There are two main types of residential generators: portable and permanent standby. If you plan to power a few lights, your refrigerator and a furnace, a less expensive portable generator may provide enough power. Keep in mind that you will need to ensure you have enough fuel on hand before the power goes out and you will be moving the generator outside and starting it in the dark. If you intend to run your lights, air conditioner, sump pump, refrigerator and other major appliances a permanent standby model is a better option. Permanently installed generators are connected directly to your home's utilities, when the power goes out they automatically start up to provide power for extended periods of time.

Professional Residential Generator Installation

When considering a generator for your home it's important to hire an experienced electrician who can match the generator to your home's existing power needs to ensure reliable and safe operation.
