  • Home generators keep power flowing to your home when your utility company’s power supply is disrupted for any reason. When your home loses power, your generator will turn on, creating power via a heavy-duty battery. A home generator will keep power flowing to your home in the following situations:

    • Blackouts – Whether there’s a city-wide outage or a tree branch has downed a power line in your neighbourhood, blackouts can be a problem.
    • Extreme Weather – The intense weather we see here in Georgia can cause outages when there are heavy winds, tornadoes, or hurricanes. These severe weather events are the last time you want to be left without power.
    • Damage From Animals – Animal-related damage is the second most common reason homes lose power. When animals nest in the wrong place or chew through wires, your home’s power supply can be disrupted until your utility company can perform repairs.
    • Car Accidents – If a car accident affects power lines in your neighborhood, you could be left powerless for hours. If you have a generator, you’ll barely notice the outage.

What Are the Different Types of Generators?

There are a few different types of home generators. So, as a homeowner, you are probably wondering what type of generator you should install in your home. Mr. Electric of the Coastal Empire is always glad to meet with you and make recommendations. We’ll measure the amount of energy your home uses and show you which generator brand and size would properly power your home. First, it’s helpful to understand the two main types of generators. Learn more about the two main types of generators.

Portable Generators

You may have seen small, portable generators that run off gasoline. These are the most budget-friendly generators on the market, but they do not provide very much power and they do not start automatically when the power goes out. These typically won’t power more than a few devices or appliances at a time, and you will need to refuel a portable generator during prolonged power outages. Filling gasoline containers and refuelling is not always a convenient option. As you can see, this is not the best option for someone who wants a generator that seamlessly supplies power to their entire home.

Standby Home Generators

A standby generator is a fixed unit that is connected to your home’s electrical system. These usually use natural gas or propane and start automatically when your power supply is lost. A standby home generator will supply enough power to run all of your home appliances, including your refrigerator, freezer, sump pump, stove, lights, HVAC, and more. However, these require more home generator maintenance services than portable generators and are more costly.

  • As homeowners, we all know that a power outage can happen at any time, leaving us in the dark and without essential appliances. While portable generators can provide temporary relief, they may not be enough to power your entire home. This is where standby generators come in handy. Installing a standby generator is a smart investment for homeowners who want to know that their homes have a reliable backup power supply when the grid fails. Below, Savannah, Georgia’s Mr. Electric of The Coastal Empire, is answering some of the most frequently asked questions about home generator installation and maintenance.
