The Benefits of Installing a Whole-Home Generator

08/29/23

Many problems can be caused when you rely solely on your home’s main power system. Whole-home generators, also known as standby generators, are a great addition or substitute to traditional power sources.

They provide many benefits that regular power systems don’t have including the ability to keep running through outages or keep your plumbing system moving.

 

Automatically Powered

When compared to a gas-powered generator, whole-home generators can provide your home with automatic power as you don’t have to check that it has fuel prior to switching it on. They also will start running automatically if your traditional power source goes out. This can save you from having spoiled food in your refrigerator and ensure that your security system stays active, even if you are away from home.

Unlimited Power

Whole-Home generators connect to your gas line and produce power straight from that utility source. This means that if your power goes out for some reason you won’t run out of power because the generator will kick on and provide you with the electricity your home needs.

They are different from portable generators in this way because they don’t need fuel to run. If you have a generator that runs on fuel and you can’t make it to a gas station to refill then you’ll be out of power till your main source comes back up.

Plumbing Will Continue To Run

In most modern homes your plumbing relies on electricity to function. This means that some showers, toilets, and sinks will need electricity to work. If your power goes down during a winter storm it’s possible your pipes can freeze due to lack of movement caused by not being able to use your plumbing system.

If your electricity goes out and you have a whole-home generator installed, you can still use all the plumbing and running water as needed.

Energy Efficiency

When you have a whole-home generator installed you can choose which appliances you want to power. This can help you stay more energy efficient even when using a generator.

They are different from portable generators as they don’t only provide a certain amount of power to your home. You have to refuel portable generators many times to keep them running but with whole-home generators, your power will not go out and you won’t have to use a lot of resources or fossil fuels.

Protection Against Voltage Surges

When there is weather that is unpredictable there can be voltage surges in your home. A whole-home generator will control the amount of power that feeds into your home. This can help protect against unexpected voltage surges from your main power source.

Convenience During Outages

Since a whole-home generator will kick on automatically it is a big convenience when there’s an outage with your main power source. It will also keep your home powered, which ensures that your heating and cooling system stays on if it happens during the hottest and coldest months of the year, which can help with your health and comfort.

Increased Safety

Losing power can be a dangerous and stressful situation. It can cause you to fall or trip due to a lack of light in your home. Having a whole-home generator will keep the lights on so that you can remain safe while moving about your home.

Power loss can also make a home more susceptible to other issues like becoming the target of a crime due to the power being lost and your security system going out. With this kind of generator, you can rest assured that your security system will stay intact.

Whole-home generators also emit less toxic fumes than portable generators. These fumes can be hazardous to your health and even put you at risk for carbon monoxide poisoning. This makes whole-home generators a safer option.

Eases Your Mind

If you live in an area that is prone to power outages or natural disasters, having a backup power source will help keep your mind at ease. This will allow you to live your life normally when the power is down around you. There’s no way to predict when a power outage will happen so being prepared is the best option.

Next Steps

As you can see, whole-home generators are a great option to protect your home from unexpected outages and keep your home functioning normally when you lose power from your main source of electricity. These benefits are some of the reasons that this is a preferred alternative for power.
