You can make your life a lot easier if you take the time to call and have a standby generator installed today. A standby generator is a permanent fixture that is placed outside your home, usually in the backyard or on the side of the house. The placement will typically depend on where your home’s electric panel is located. The generator ensures your home will continue on like normal despite a power outage. A Glendale electrician will be needed to complete the installation process. You can find a team of reliable electricians at H Electric.
A standby generator is different from a portable generator and they do tend to be higher powered. You can run your entire home with a standby generator without running a single extension cord. They are also much quieter because they are enclosed inside a metal box. Homeowners will also appreciate the ease in which a standby generator turns on. It is all automatic. There isn’t a need to go out and pull a cord over and over. For further ease, a switch that monitors the electricity flowing into the house can be installed by an electrician. Glendale homeowners who have one of the switches installed will never need to worry about starting the generator. It will automatically turn on within seconds of the power going out.
There are varying sizes of generators. You will need to choose a generator that is powerful enough to run your house or a few key appliances. The bigger the home, the bigger the generator you will need. These are things you will want to discuss with an electrician. The installation process is fairly straightforward, but because the generator will be wired directly into your home’s main electric panel, it needs to be completed by a certified electrician. If you would like to learn more about standby generators or would like to have yours installed, give H electric a call today.
