The weather in Durham is unpredictable to say the least – ice storms in the winter and severe thunderstorms with high winds during warmer months can knock out the power for days. It’s inconvenient to try to deal with no electricity, but it’s also dangerous, especially for vulnerable populations who need air conditioning, refrigeration, and medical equipment.
We can install whole home generators to keep your electric running smoothly and reliably throughout the bad weather and the aftermath so you never have to go without air conditioning, necessary equipment, or even entertainment.
How Home Generators Work
Unlike portable generators that are noisy and can only handle a few items like a fan or a coffee pot, whole home generators power your entire house, just like your electrical system. Even running your air conditioner, furnace, and large appliances, you can rely on your home generator for several days.
Powered by a large, rechargeable battery and fueled by liquid propane or natural gas, a standby generator connects to your home’s electrical wiring and its fuel source. When the electricity goes out, the generator can either be manually switched on to power your home or it will turn on automatically.
Home Generator Repairs
If your power goes out and your home generator doesn’t kick on, our licensed electricians can help. We can check to see if there is a problem with the battery, low coolant levels, or a breaker that has tripped. Often, these are simple and fast fixes when done by our generator electricians so you can go back to life as usual, no matter what the weather is like outside.
Who Can Benefit from Whole Home Generator Installation
While a home generator is an excellent investment for any homeowner, it is a necessity for certain populations, including:
- Homes with vulnerable populations, including the elderly, young children, and people with disabilities.
- People who work from home, so they don’t lose income or business.
- Those living in areas vulnerable to hurricanes and severe weather where power can be knocked out for days at a time.
- People who require refrigeration for medicine or need power for medical equipment, including CPAP machines.
