You have probably heard that saying a hundred times in the past; It is better to be safe, than sorry. This is so true in the case of choosing to have a standby generator installed for your home. You may never need it, but wouldn’t it be nice to make sure you have a backup source of power in the event of some horrible storm or an accident that takes out the power grid for hours or even days? A Pasadena electrician, like those at H Electric, can help you go the safe route so you will never have to be sitting in the dark, eating cold canned food and feeling pretty sorry.
A standby generator is an investment you will not be disappointed you made when you realize the benefits of having a backup source of power. The generator will be wired directly to your home. This means there will be no need for extension cords. A transfer switch is installed that will switch the power from the main power grid to the backup generator as soon as an interruption in the power has been registered. This typically happens within seconds. You will not be forced to start the generator up or anything like that. It will all happen automatically.
There are various sizes of standby generators available. You will want to do some research before you make a final decision and talk with an electrician. Pasadena homeowners will need to have an idea of how many square feet their home is when shopping for a generator. You will also need to decide if you plan on running some of the biggest electricity hogs like an air conditioner or a dryer. These will require a larger generator. When you are ready to have your standby generator installed, give H Electric a call and schedule your appointment.
