Lots of homeowners in the Atlanta area have an emergency generator for their homes, and many other residents have considered getting one, and for good reason. Thunderstorm season is coming up quickly, so local electricians are fielding ever more phone calls asking about emergency generator installations for homes all over town. Keep reading to learn more about getting an emergency generator installed for your home.
Emergency Generators Keep You and Your Family Safe
During a power outage, people don’t want to suffer through Atlanta’s heat and humidity with no air conditioning. In the middle of the summer, the heat can be downright life-threatening, especially for the elderly, small children, and people with health conditions.
Some families require an emergency generator for a person in the home who needs their medical devices to run continuously. Still others simply want to know that their modern conveniences, like their refrigerator and electronic devices, will continue to work after the neighborhood goes dark.
No matter what your reasons are for getting an emergency generator for your home, you know what’s best for your family. A qualified electrician should be entrusted with the installation process. The generator will have to be placed a safe distance from the home, but within a certain distance from the gas line and electrical box. Lines will be buried under your lawn from the gas and electric points to the generator.
The entire installation process should be completed within a day. The electrician will test the device to make sure it is ready to run. Then, the power to the home will be briefly stopped to make sure that the generator turns on automatically and runs correctly.
Modern emergency generators will require almost no upkeep from you. They will run their own periodic system checks. If a problem arises during one of those checks, the generator will kick on a warning light so that you know it’s time to call your electrician to resolve the problem.
Emergency Generators for Home = Peace of Mind
When the power goes out in the middle of a hot summer night, wouldn’t it be nice if you didn’t even know about it? Your emergency generator will turn on as soon as it detects a loss of power.
