Electricity powers our lives, quite literally. Indeed, it is thanks to electricity that most of us are able to turn on the lights, cook, run a dishwasher or washing machine, heat and cool our homes, and charge and use electronics and appliances. Which is why if the power goes out, the loss of power to your home can be especially devastating.
And that’s where a standby generator comes in – a standby generator provides an immediate, effective, and constant source of power in the event that there is a power blackout. If you want to ensure that your home, family, or business are secure if power is lost, a standby generator is the solution.
Having a backup source of power can be a huge relief and comfort. But how do you know which type of generator to choose, and why a standby generator often a superior choice to a portable generator?
One of the reasons that a standby generator is often the preferred choice for home and business power needs is that a standby generator provides a lot more power than does a portable generator. In fact, portable generators only provide between 3,000 and 8,500 watts, whereas standby generators provide between 5,000 and 20,000 watts. For homeowners with a lot of power needs (most homes need at least 5,000 watts), or small or mid-sized businesses, the amount of power provided alone makes a standby generator an easy choice.
But the amount of power provided isn’t the only reason why a standby generator is often the preferred choice. Another benefit of a standby generator is that power is automatic, which means there are only a few seconds of a transition period between when power is lost in your home and your standby generator kicks on.
Standby generators can also run self-diagnostic tests, letting you know when maintenance is necessary. Some standby generators can even send you an email or text when it’s maintenance time.
There is a huge sense of comfort that can be derived from knowing that you’ll have power if there is an outage. In some cases, such as instances when emergency or medical equipment requires power, a standby generator can even be life saving.
