There are situations in life that will blindside you, and there are situations that you thought you might encounter eventually that will actually arrive much earlier than expected. That being said, we are big proponents for at least preparing for situations that are likely, and using a whole-house generator is definitely one way to do so. It is only a matter of time before your power goes out and stays out for more than a brief window.

When these power outages happen, is your home prepared? What does being prepared for such outages actually mean? If you ask our electricians, it means having a great whole-house generator in place. Why? We’ll get into that more below, but basically, it comes down to convenience and reliability. There is no situation in which a portable generator is better in the event of a power outage when it comes to keeping a whole house up and running.

Benefits of a Whole-House Generator

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

The ability to power our appliances, gadgets and electronics with electricity in our homes is truly one of the greatest luxuries that we enjoy. If you have ever experienced a power outage, even a relatively short one, you know just how disruptive living without electricity can be. When you consider the fact that your furnace, air conditioning system, refrigerator, microwave and so many other items you depend on every day run on electricity, it becomes very clear just how important this resource is. If you live in an area prone to power outages, or you just want to be prepared for the next big storm, call the Redmond, WA electrical technicians at G&S Heating, Cooling & Electrical, Inc. to discuss the benefits of a whole-house generator.

The major benefit that a whole-house generator offers is that you can have it wired directly into your electrical panel, allowing you to run a number of different appliances and electronics off of it. In order to do so, of course, it is important that you schedule your whole-house generator installation with a qualified electrician. This is the only way to be sure that your whole-house generator will operate safely and efficiently. Unlike a portable generator, which allows you to plug a few different items directly into it, a whole-house generator lets you run a great variety of different devices, depending on the size and power of the system. Discuss your electrical needs with a professional electrician to ensure that you generator can handle the load you need to ask of it.

Another great benefit of a whole-house generator is that an automatic standby model will come on all on its own in the event of a power outage. This means that you do not even have to be home to start it up in order to keep your refrigerator running or even important medical equipment operational. Contact us today to learn more.
