Using a Standby Home Generator

Power outages do occur. So when the electricity is out, consider having a standby home generator that acts as a reliable, efficient, and safe back-up power plan. A standby generator automatically starts working immediately when the power goes out. Read on to learn more.

How a Standby Home Generator Works

Home generators require fuel, typically propane, natural gas or diesel. The moment there is a power outage, the generator senses the utility outage problem and prepares to restore the power in your home, usually within seconds. It turns on automatically through the automatic transfer switch that supplies electricity to your home. Once the generator comes on, selected electrical appliances continue operating. Tthe home generator stays on until the main power returns.

There are several benefits to having home generators in Baltimore.

  1. Provides enough power for your home electrical usage. A whole home generator instantly supplies enough power for the continuous use of electrical appliances such as heaters, water heaters, refrigerators, electric ovens, dishwashers, and washers and dryers. You can also customize a home generator to send power only to the electrical appliances you want to continue running during the power outage.
  2. Supplies instant, electric power. The home generator works immediately. The unit senses power outage issues and starts operating within 20 to 30 seconds. It starts working regardless of your presence in the house or not.
  3. Stays on as long as there is a loss of utility power. Propane and natural gas can keep the home generator running for as long as there is a power outage. It does not require refueling, which makes it energy efficient.
