Having a home generator can mean the difference between riding out a power outage in comfort or in misery. If you live in an area prone to power outages or just like to be prepared for anything, you will want to consider the benefits of having a standby generator installed by an electrician. Glendale homeowners have been relying on H Electric for years. You can too.
There are 2 main types of generators; portable and hard-wired. Portable generators are the kind with wheels that are often used in wilderness cabins and when people are camping. They tend to be a bit louder than their counterparts, but are less costly than the hard-wired generators.
When a person needs to use their portable generator, they will need to transport it close to the home in order for power cords to be plugged into it from inside the house. When the power goes out, the user will need to go out and start the generator and proceed to hook up the various extension cords. Portable generators should never be used indoors. This means you will need to be outside in the weather.
Standby generators are installed near your home by an electrician. Glendale homeowners will need to have a certified electrician perform the install due to the electrical requirements needed to wire the generator into your home’s main power.
When the power goes out, the generator comes on. It is that simple. You do not need to worry about getting gear on to go outside in inclement weather. During the installation process, your electrician will have installed a device that monitors the electric flowing into your home. The second the power is interrupted, the generator kicks on.
