Another power outage.  You can certainly understand why so many homeowners are getting a home standby generator.  The inconvenience of being without power for hours or days at a time coupled with the the loss of security and safety is troubling.  There is also substantial financial loss suffered when the power is out for an extensive amount of time from food spoilage, water damage and mold and mildew growth.   

More and more new homes all across the country are being delivered to their new owners with a backup generator.  With a five-fold increase in the number of power outages in the U.S. over the past decade, people understand that they have to go to greater lengths to protect their homes and everything in it.   Fortunately, retrofitting a home generator into an existing home is easily done.  A generator unit sits outside your home and is permanently wired into your electrical panel.  The unit is about the size of an air conditioner condenser and contains a motor which generates electricity from alternate, and uninterruptible, fuel sources such as natural gas and propane.

Generators have integrated sensors which detect when the power from utility sources is cut off.  In addition to storms, power can go out from a malfunction at the substation, from human error or if a truck hits an electrical utility pole.   Once a power outage signal is received, the generator motor engages and sends electrical power to each wired circuit on your home’s electrical panel.  You can power up your refrigerator, HVAC system, your security system, lights, a water heater, your sump pump, and the wall outlets that are necessary for you to live comfortably until power goes back on.  A whole house generator can also power your entire home and every circuit in it if you choose. 

When the utility restores power, the generator turns itself off and seals its connection with your panel.  All this is done whether you are at home or not.  If you are away on vacation or at work and there is a storm causing widespread power outages, you can be reassured that your home is still safe and secure because your generator is keeping your systems running normally.

The size generator you choose will depend on if you want all your circuits powered, or just a few.  OnGuard Generators sells and services most major brands of backup generators including those from Generac, Kohler, Briggs & Stratton, GE and more.  Give us a call today for a free assessment of your options for a home generator.
