Quality Generators for Reliable Backup Power
The extreme weather, strong storms, and hurricanes in Florida leave homes and businesses vulnerable to frequent power outages. After a hurricane, the power can be out for many days. These outages leave you without power for lighting, air conditioning, security systems, and appliances. A generator provides a reliable source of power during an outage.
The main options for generators include portable and standby generators. Portable generators are less expensive but can only power a few appliances or part of the house. The other drawback of portable generators is that they run on diesel fuel, which needs to be refilled. In addition, portable generators are noisy, and there is a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning from the fumes.
A whole-house standby generator is beneficial for:
- The ability to power an entire home
- Convenience, as it switches on and off automatically
- No need to refill fuel
- Saving money with less risk of spoiled food or other damage
- Staying cool and comfortable
Standby generators come in several sizes to provide the right amount of power needed for homes and commercial properties. Your electrician can help you select a generator that is the right size for your home and make sure everything is installed correctly.

As with any mechanical equipment, generators can break down periodically and may require a repair. If you are experiencing problems with your generator, call for generator repair to make sure your home is ready for the next outage.
Generator failure is often caused by:
- Leaks in the coolant system
- Faulty wiring
- Cracked or broken belts
- Dead batteries
- Damaged components, such as motors or circuit boards
Unfortunately, many people aren’t aware of a problem with the generator until it fails to come on during a storm. Preventative maintenance ensures that your generator is working properly. Annual maintenance is recommended to keep your generator in good working condition. Your electrician can inspect the generator, check the wiring and alternator, inspect the air intake system, replace the filter, and make sure the system is free of dirt.
