                Whole House Generator Tips

Having a generator in Kirkland is a great idea, just in case there is an emergency, or you loose power for any reason. One thing that you should definitely avoid though is using your main power supply at the same time as your back up power supply. This can have serious detrimental effects on your home, and electric appliances. You should never have to subsidize your main electric supply, so if you feel like you are having limited electricity delivered to your home contact G & S Heating, Cooling, & Electric for electrical assistance.

Generator Installation

The first step is to choose a whole house generator that fits the needs of your home. Generators come in four general sizes (depending on the brand you select). These systems are designed to work for various sized homes, depending on individual energy needs.

The key to choosing the right backup generator is knowing exactly how many amps you need and which system will provide that kind of power in a pinch. On average, most recently built homes are designed to use a maximum of 200 amps, though most homes won’t use anywhere near that. Some older homes can’t even handle that much power, which means a smaller generator may be adequate. Our technicians can assess your home’s electricity use and help you select a system that matches your particular needs.

Generator Maintenance

Like complex home comfort systems, whole house generators have a lot of moving parts. Now, imagine what happens if your generator is ignored for two or three years before it’s actually needed. To ensure the system is there for you when you actually need it to work, regular, recurring maintenance is a must.

Fluids should be checked, worn down parts should be replaced or repaired, and it should be run and checked for potential problems. How often it is serviced depends on a number of factors including how often you use it, its size and the age of the unit. Our technicians will review the particulars of your generator and help you set up a schedule that makes the most sense.

Generator Repair

Generator repairs should be completed as soon as possible, so that you always remain prepared to deal with an emergency. If your whole house generator is in need of repair our technicians will be there to provide fast service and get your generator up and running so it’s ready the next time it’s needed.
