Understand How Backup Generators Work

A standby generator is installed outside of a home and uses diesel, propane, or natural gas to provide power to your home. It’s operated by an automatic transfer switch that connects to your home. When the switch senses that the power grid has been switched off, it turns on. There is usually a one- or two-minute lapse in power to the home during this transition. If you only need to supply power to one area of the home; for instance, if you want to make sure your computer or medical device doesn’t turn off during a power outage, you can install a smaller standby generator and battery backups. Larger standby generators and even portable generators can supply very high electrical voltage loads that can power an entire home.

Choose the Right Type of Home Generator for Install

Choosing the right size generator is key to making sure your home has adequate power during an outage. We can calculate the necessary wattage needed to power all your devices should the power go out. When you contact us for electrical generator install & maintenance, we’ll do an in-home consultation. This will allow us to assess your electrical load and evaluate your wiring, lighting, outlets, switches, and appliances. We will want to make sure all your wiring is up to code and can handle the installation of a generator. Then, we’ll help you decide what type of generator is best based on your needs, lifestyle, and budget:

  • Portable generator – This type of generator has the capacity to supply power to essentials in your home until power is restored. They need to be started manually and then connected to necessary appliances. You can also use a portable generator to supply power to sites outside of regular municipal or county electrical grids, or in a remote area of your property that can’t connect to your home’s main electrical panel, like a workshop, garage, or guest house.
  • Standby generator – A standby generator is connected to your home’s electrical panel and operated when the automatic transfer switch is triggered by a power outage. It can be powered with diesel, natural gas, or propane.
