If you’ve ever been without power for an extended period of time, you know that it’s an event that is far more than inconvenient.

Can’t a Portable Generator Work for Me?
A portable generator can be good for keeping things like a refrigerator, some lights and maybe an electric stove going, depending on the size of the generator, but a portable generator simply cannot provide the same level of power as a whole home unit can. Additionally, you have to really manage a portable unit: you have to re–fuel consistently, turn it on manually and use extension cords to deliver the electricity. You won’t have to contend with any of this with a whole house generator.
Does My Whole House Generator Need Maintenance?
In a word, yes, it does. Your generator won’t be running all that much, and as such, it will do a good amount of sitting. Downtime for any electro–mechanical unit allows for dirt, dust and debris to collect, and specific to generators, fuel lines can develop problems due to the evaporation of the fuel. You want your generator to work when you need it, and the best way to do this is to schedule one of our electrical experts for bi–annual maintenance service.
Is Sizing an Issue?
Inadequate sizing is one of the most common mistakes made with new generator installation, but not when you work with our experts. We have been sizing generators properly for years, and will do the same for you. Our electrical experts will work with you to determine which systems and appliances you need to keep running during a power outage, calculate the electrical load and size your generator to accommodate your electrical needs during an outage.
