Portable vs. Standby Generators
There are two main options for home generators: portable generators and standby generators. Portable generators are the least expensive option, but they are only designed to run a few appliances. You will need to determine which appliances to power with the generator. Portable models are connected to your electrical panel with a transfer switch. Our electricians can install this for you. However, they often are small and can’t really power more than just a few essential appliances.
Standby generators can power most of your home appliances. You have the option of a whole house generator, which powers everything in the house, or a selective circuit generator to maintain power for 8-12 circuits.
How Does a Generator Work?
Automatic stationary generators are the most convenient for homeowners. When the power goes out, the generator will start automatically to supply the power needed to run your appliances, lighting, and other equipment. After normal power is restored, the generator will switch off automatically, so you don’t have to do anything at all.
Standby Generators Can Provide Power to Run:
- Heating and air conditioning equipment
- And more
If your home is surrounded by many trees or you live in an area with a high risk of power outages, a standby generator can help you avoid being left in the dark.
No Electricity? Keep Your Power on With HomeWiz
Investing in a generator installation from HomeWiz is the ideal choice to protect your home during a power outage or loss of electricity. With a portable or standby generator, you can not only keep your electricity running when the power goes out, but you can also protect your appliances and electronics. A sudden loss of electricity can result in electrical damage, a decrease in the lifespan of your appliances and electronics, and even overloading when the power comes back on.
Benefits of a Generator:
- Protects the home from any potential power surges or significant changes in the voltage to your appliances
- Keeps your property comfortable as your heating and air conditioning systems are able to operate as normal
- Provides peace of mind, security, and safety during emergencies
- Allows for necessary plumbing equipment, such as water heaters and sump pumps, to continue functioning smoothly, reducing the risk of potential water damage or a lack of hot water
- Offers your home a sense of protection by maintaining the home’s security and automation systems
Whether your power outage or lack of electricity was caused by a storm or a downed tree or power line, a generator can help safeguard your home. To learn more about the countless benefits of a generator system, reach out to our team of electricians today.
