Home Generators for Arlington, TX

Power surges can knock out power to your home any time, not only when a major storm hits. Keep your home and family safe by installing a home backup power generator by Mr. Electric of Arlington.

Confidence During Power Outages

With a home generator you’ll have peace of mind during any power outages, no matter the cause. The potential for a power outage is higher than you might think.  

Blackouts-- when there isn’t enough electricity to meet high demands, especially in the summer months

Animals --  unfortunately, animals are the second leading cause of residential power failures

Vehicles – accidents can severely damage power poles, lines, transformers and other electrical equipment

Weather – homes and power substations can be damaged by lightning, wind, hail, hurricanes, tornadoes, and snowstorms

Disasters – it may take weeks to repair damage from earthquakes, floods and brush fires that destroy whole power grid infrastructures

Power outages can range from a couple hours to a week or more, depending on how much work it takes electricians to restore electrical service. With a home generator, your refrigerators and freezers can preserve food, sump pumps can move water, furnaces can keep the home warm, and computers won’t be damaged or lose files. Most importantly, at night lights will stay on for safety. A home generator converts fuel into electrical power thanks to heavy-duty recharging batteries.

Fit the Generator to Your Needs

Portable Generators

During a short power outage of two or three days, essential home appliances or a whole workshop could be powered by a portable generator. Manually started, portable generators require constant refueling. They must be located outside of homes and buildings to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning from exhaust that builds up in small spaces. Portable generators do cost less than home generators, and they could be used for camping, tailgating and other activities.

Generac Automatic Standby Home Generators

Home backup power generators by Generac automatically activate during a power loss. A whole home generator runs on natural gas or propane, not gasoline. Although portable generators cost less than a home standby generator, a home generator can power more appliances throughout the home and run for weeks since it is directly wired into the home’s main electrical line.

Determine the Right Generator Size

Our licensed electricians at Mr. Electric will inspect your electrical system for how many total watts are required to power the most important appliances on a home power generator. Knowing the system capacity is important to prevent overloading circuits when the home generator starts automatically. The generator should be able to power essential appliances for five days or more.
