Can you even imagine living life without electricity in this day and age? From the inconvenience of not being able to charge your electrical devices to the impossibility of keeping food fresh in a modern refrigerator, it’s clear that a lack of electricity can be a real problem. Fortunately, it’s not one that homeowners must fact too frequently.
That being said, it is certainly possible that you may lose power to your house at some point. It’s also possible that such a power outage could last far, far longer than you’d hope. This is why you may want to use a whole-house generator in North Seattle.
Why Choose a Whole-House System?
Chances are that you’ve seen a portable generator at some point. Perhaps at a campground, or even at a tailgating party. Portable generators have their uses, but they also have a lot of limitations.
With a portable generator, you’ll probably be using gasoline to power the system. You’ll have to pick and choose what appliances or electronics you want to plug in. You’ll have to run power cords right to the generator. This is not the case with a whole-house generator, though.
When properly sized and installed, a whole-house generator can run, well, your whole house! The system will be hardwired into your electrical system, so you won’t have to worry about running around and looking for extension cords. With an automatic standby generator, you won’t even have to worry about starting the system up. It will recognize that the power’s gone out, and spring right into action.
Because these systems are wired right into your home’s electrical system, a professional electrician is the only one that can handle its installation. Don’t get caught out in the cold this winter because the power’s gone out. Call today to discuss your options.
