  • A home backup generator restores power to your outlets and appliances if your primary source of electrical power is interrupted. Backup generators are different from portable generators, which are smaller and can be transported easily from place to place. A backup generator is permanently installed near your home, wired into your home’s electrical panel, hooked up to a fuel supply, and connected to an automatic transfer switch. When the ATF senses power loss, it switches your power supply over to the generator, so there is only a one- or two-minute loss of power. Backup generators can run on natural gas or propane and require a consistent fuel supply in order to stay functional. A home electrical services company can determine what type of backup generator installation is right for you. Installing a home generator is crucial if:

    • Your home is off the grid or its access to a main electrical supply is spotty or intermittent.
    • You live in an area that suffers from frequent blackouts or schedules rolling blackouts.
    • Your region often experiences inclement weather that affects power lines or electrical service.
    • Your power lines or equipment are at risk of damage from animals.
    • Your region is at risk for natural disasters that cause power outages or damage equipment.
    • You have crucial medical equipment in your home that requires a power supply to function properly, such as respirators, CPAP machines, or monitors.
    • You have medication that must remain refrigerated.

Consider Your Needs Before Installing Home Generator

We can guide you through the process of choosing the right backup generator for your home. We have experience installing, maintaining, and repairing all makes, models, and manufacturers of home backup generators. Before we install a home generator, we will help you consider the size of generator you need, your home wattage requirements, your fuel source, and automatic or manual transfer switch installation:

  • Generator size – The size of your generator determines what appliances and equipment will continue operating when the power goes out. We can wire your generator to power your whole house, or just a specific circuit. Walk through your home and consider what you absolutely need to keep on in the event of a power loss. For instance, maybe you can get by without television or internet and using flashlights for lighting, but you want to be sure your refrigerator and heating and cooling system remain operational.
  • Wattage requirements – Next, you’ll need to add up the wattage requirements for all the appliances and equipment you want to power. This will determine how powerful your generator needs to be. After adding the wattages, multiply that number by 1.5, because appliances need an extra power boost to start up.
  • Fuel source – Next, consider the availability and cost of fuel. Most backup generators can run on either natural gas or propane. You will need to store fuel on your property and replace it as-needed to ensure the generator remains functional for as long as you need it.
  • Transfer switch – Finally, you will need to have a transfer switch installed to trigger the transfer of power over from your home’s electrical panel to the generator. A manual transfer switch is one you will need to switch yourself when the power goes out. An automatic transfer switch is triggered automatically in the event of a power outage, so you don’t need to do anything.
