Protect Your Home with a Generator This Summer

We’re all looking forward to the arrival of the summer season. Even the cooler days of spring will be a nice of change pace while we wait for the summer’s heat to arrive. As we move out of the winter season, though, we must remind homeowners that summer brings its own challenges, and that an AC may not be the only system that they’ll need to enjoy their time at home to the fullest.

Summertime has a lot to offer, and not all of it is welcome with open arms. Heavy rains and high winds can move in when summer storms arrive, downing trees and power lines in their wake. When that happens, you’ll be glad for having taken our advice and investing in a whole-house generator. 

Isn’t My Portable Generator Enough?

If you’re going camping and want some power on-hand, or you’re tailgating and you need to keep some equipment up and running to keep the party going, then yes, your portable generator is enough. If, however, you want to keep an entire house up and running, and you want to do so conveniently, then a whole-house generator is definitely the way to go.

With a whole-house generator, you don’t need to plug in individual appliances, nor do you need to decide which ones make the cut, and which ones you’ll have to do without. Instead, you simply go about life as normal. With automatic standby generator, you won’t even have to go out to fire up the system. It will recognize a power outage, and come on automatically to keep your home running smoothly.

Call for Emergency Generator Services

A major difference between these whole-house generators and portable models is that you’re not going to run to the hardware store to pick up a whole-house generator. These system are integrated into your electrical system, and they are large, permanent installations. You need to hire a professional to guarantee that your generator in North Seattle, WA is appropriately sized and that it is tied into your electrical system properly.
