As we hear stories about people in the southern states who have been hit hard by late winter storms, we have also heard stories about thousands of people still without power. Going a few hours without electricity is inconvenient, but going days or weeks without power is downright horrible. There is no time like the present to prepare for an extensive power outage. It doesn’t matter where you live. Disaster can strike at anytime and leave you and your family in the dark. An electrician in Glendale has a solution. The team at H Electric is here to tell you about standby generators.
You can protect your family from being forced to live in a dark world after a natural disaster or a simple grid failure. A standby generator is similar to that of a portable generator and is fueled by propane, diesel or gas. The major difference is the standby generator is a permanent fixture and is always on standby for a power outage, hence the name. You do not have to go about plugging in extension cords or pulling the generator out of a storage shed. When you think about it, it is much safer to stay indoors if the weather is bad enough to knock out the power.
A Glendale electrician will wire the standby generator directly into your home’s main electric. When the power goes out, the generator automatically turns on and restores power to the areas of the home you have designated. You will have the option of choosing a small generator with enough wattage available to power a few essential items or a powerful generator that will run your entire home. It is a good idea to do some research and evaluate the cost differences between the various sizes. Once you have made your decision, give H Electric a call and schedule your installation appointment.
