Benefits of Installing a Whole House Generator

Power outages can quickly cause a major inconvenience for your home. They can leave your house uncomfortable in the absence of an HVAC system, cause items in your refrigerator or freezer to spoil, can put your safety at risk, and more. To avoid these problems, it’s important to have a functioning whole house generator. Some of the advantages include:

Automatic Power

Within seconds, power is back on. Even if you are not home, your fridge and freezer stay cold.

Better Functionality

Standby generators can be partial home or whole home – you decide how much you want your generator to run

Peace of Mind

No need to store fuel – or get more fuel when gas stations are out of power too

Convenience

Within seconds you have the power to charge your electric car.

Stay Warm

A standby generator will keep your house warm and your water pipes from freezing and bursting

Longer Run Time

Natural gas or propane – either one will run longer than portable generators

What to Know When Selecting a Generator for Your Home

When buying a generator for your property, you have many sizes, makes, and models to choose from. Before selecting a unit you should consider the following:

Determine which electrical appliances and devices you need to function during a blackout.

Ensure the unit can work in various temperatures, including extreme heat. In the summer you will need a unit that can keep the air conditioner running to keep the humidity levels down in your house.

Make sure the unit can keep your refrigerator running during the power outage to protect your perishables.

Determine the total watts of electricity the generator will need to provide to decide what size of unit you need.

Decide your budget for the unit.

Transfer switches are what make it possible to switch between generator power and power from your utility lines. Transfer switches play a major role in how your backup generator system works, and here at Electric City, we have several different options depending on whether you want your switch to operate manually or automatically.

  • Home Backup Transfer Switches – Home backup transfer switches are usually designed to switch power from your utility to your generator automatically when your system detects an outage. Additionally, these switches will switch back over to utility power automatically as well as soon as power is restored.
  • Portable Generator Transfer Switches – Portable generator transfer switches safely deliver the full power of your portable generator to your home’s electrical system. This means you’ll never have to run an extension cord from your generator to your individual appliances again.

Interlock kits are devices designed to allow the safe powering of a home by a portable or backup generator during a power outage. Using an interlock kit is generally a less-expensive alternative to having a dedicated transfer switch installed and might be a better option for some homeowners. In essence, an interlock kit creates a mechanical interference between your main breaker and your generator’s feedback breaker that prevents both from being turned on at the same time.  With an interlock system, there are options to have all your critical circuits pre-determined or you can pick and choose them based on your current need.

Essentially, a generator outlet is an electrical outlet for your entire home. This outlet serves as the gateway for power to flow into your home’s essential circuits from your connected portable generator. Here at Electric City, our skilled electricians can help with your generator outlet installation needs to ensure your home is prepared to safely take in power from your backup generator when the power goes out.

You and your family rely on your electrical system for your most important everyday tasks. Your electrical system provides you with comfort, convenience, and, most importantly, security. At Electric City, our electricians can help ensure that you and your family are always safe and comfortable.
