Just give us a call to learn more about the generator services that we offer.
Portable or Whole–House: Which Is Right for Me?
Portable generators have their uses, but they are in no way capable of keeping a whole house up and running when the power goes out. A portable generator requires that the desired appliances or devices be directly plugged into them. They will typically run on either gasoline or diesel.
Whole–house generators, on the other hand, are hardwired directly into your electrical system. This means that an appropriately sized house generator is capable of backing up the entire system, should you so choose. You may also choose to use an automatic standby generator, which will start up automatically when the power goes out. These systems may use diesel or propane, though natural gas is generally a preferred option.
Do You Need a Generator Replacement?
Generators are fairly straightforward systems, and they are not used every day the way that an air conditioner is in the summer. They don’t incur the same level of wear and tear, as a result, but they also won’t last forever. If you are concerned about the reliability of your generator, or if testing shows that it is inoperable, a generator replacement is in order.
If you have a generator that doesn’t meet your electrical demands, or if you’d like to eliminate the need for on–site fuel storage by investing in a natural gas generator, just give us a call. Ready to upgrade from a portable generator to a whole–house model? We’re here to do the job right. Let us help you to find the right system for your needs.
Is it Time for Generator Repairs?
If your generator is in need of repairs, it is important that you schedule them promptly. You don’t want to discover that your generator needs service just when you need its service most, after all. That is why scheduling prompt generator repairs at the first sign of trouble is so important. So too is working with technicians that you can trust.
Problems with your heater or AC are fairly obvious. This is not really the case with your generator. Visually inspecting it for signs of damage each season is advisable. You should also be scheduling your system to run self–tests regularly. When in doubt, or if the tests suggest the need for repairs, contact a member of our staff to schedule service right away.
