Standby Home Generators and Whole House Generators for Aurora, IL – Call Penco Electric Now!

Do you worry about the safety of your family and your home should your power go out? If so, you are not alone. Storms, electrical grid failures and human error can all conspire to rob you of the safety and security you feel in your home. Electricity is something we all pretty much take for granted even though the number of power outages in the U.S. has grown five-fold over the past few years. An aging infrastructure is mostly to blame, but tornadoes, ice storms, downed utility poles from accidents and similar catastrophes keep homeowners in the dark for days or weeks.

The solution to this worrisome situation is to have a whole house generator direct wired into your home’s electrical panel. A home generator is situated on the outside of your home and gets its power from natural gas. Natural gas lines run underneath the ground and are not subject to the same vulnerabilities as above-ground power lines making it a virtually uninterruptible fuel supply for house generators to run on. In rural areas, generators can run on propane fuel providing weeks of steady power before the tank needs to be refilled.

House generators are able to sense when power has been interrupted and start up immediately when they get the signal that utility electricity is off…usually in less than 10-30 seconds. The system disengages automatically from utility power and engages generator power, delivering electricity to your home’s electrical circuits to keep your refrigerator running, your HVAC going, your lights on and your communication devices powered up. With a generator, your life continues on as normal while your neighbors wait for their power to return. It is a completely hands-free process and you don’t even need to be home. Everything is automatic.

When your whole house generator senses utility power is back online, it automatically shuts off, disconnects itself from your circuits and reconnects your panel to utility supplies. Then it cools itself down and readies itself for the next time it is needed.

How long can your family survive comfortably without power? For many, the answer is not very long. Children can become anxious during blackouts and those that need to keep their medical equipment operating are at risk without electricity. The damage to basements due to inoperable sump pumps (battery back ups only work for a few hours) and the loss of food due to spoilage can amount to tens of thousands of dollars. A home generator can mean the difference between weathering a storm comfortably or suffering significant loss.

We’d like to help you select the right generator for your home and your family’s needs. It is a completely turn-key process where we take care of permitting (most municipalities require a permit), installation and maintenance. All you need to do is to sit back and enjoy the comfort and peace of mind that a whole home generator offers.
