Backup Generator Installation for Your Home
Does this scenario sound familiar to you? You’re enjoying an evening at home on a cold winter night when suddenly the power goes out. If the outage lasts a long time, the food in your fridge could spoil, and you may be without heat to keep your family warm with the cold outside temperatures. While some power outages are short-lived, a lot of them are not. You could wait several hours to several days to get your electricity back on. It doesn’t have to be that way though. The experts at American Electrician can install a backup generator for your home so that you never have to worry about the possibility of a power outage.
For safety reasons, a backup generator should be installed by professionally trained electricians so that you can be sure that all local, state and national electrical codes are being followed. At American Electrician, our professional electricians can help you determine the best size and fuel source for your unique needs. We will install the backup generator along with a transfer switch, which will automatically sense the power outage and switch your power source over to the backup generator. The transfer switch will continue to monitor the power available from the utility line and transfer back to the home’s utility line once it senses that power has been restored.
Having a backup generator installed in your home could make all the difference the next time your power goes out. Other benefits of having a backup generator include:
- No interruptions in your home security system – You can relax knowing that your home is still safe and secure despite having no electrical power to keep it running.
- You can continue charging your phones and devices – If you rely on your phone or other devices, a backup generator will keep them charged just as easily as your regular electricity would.
- Prevents frozen pipes in the winter – Bitter cold temperatures can freeze pipes that are not kept warm from your HVAC appliance. The backup generator will keep the heat running so you don’t have to worry about extensive repair costs that frozen pipes would bring.
