You Need a Professional to Install Your Standby Generator

A standby generator should be a key component for every home, especially in places where severe weather can strike. Located on the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, Maryland occasionally has extended power outages year-round due to storms.

When utility electricity is lost, a standby home generator can provide all the power your home needs until electricity is restored. Within seconds after detecting an outage, a standby generator will activate and begin generating electricity.

The following are several key benefits of installing a standby generator at your home:

  • Maintain a comfortable environment inside the home during any season
  • Lighting stays on for safety and security
  • Keep food and beverages preserved in your refrigerator
  • Ensure computers and electronic devices stay powered

 Why a Professional Needed for Installation

Emergency Power – You will have peace of mind knowing your professionally installed standby generator will reliably provide power when you need it most – during severe weather conditions, such as blizzards and hurricanes when utility lines come down.

Proper Installation of Unit – Your standby generator will be properly installed and connected to your home’s electrical system, ensuring safety, functionality, and longer service life.

Proper Size Generator – There are times when homeowners purchase a standby generator on their own and then ask an electrician to install it. Unfortunately, the unit may be too big or too small for your family’s power usage. It’s wiser to have a professional first evaluate your home’s electrical needs and then advise you on the proper size generator to purchase.

Prevent Unsafe Natural Gas Connection – A licensed professional will properly connect your standby generator to its fuel supply of natural gas or propane, preventing hazardous leaks and keeping your home and family safe.
