A whole-home generator is an important component choice for any homeowner in Portsmouth, VA. Adding a whole-home generator will keep the electricity running smoothly and safely during power outages and other emergencies.
With a whole-home generator, you won’t have to worry about going through periods of living in darkness or using flashlights and candles to see when moving through your home. You will also not have to worry about the hassle that comes with waiting for the power company to repair your home after an outage or blackout. Whole-home generators can easily be hooked up to your main breaker box, and they will automatically turn on when the power goes out. Likewise, when power is restored, the generator will automatically turn-off as the power is switched back.
2. Energy Efficient
Whole house generators will run as long as you need them. Generators typically run off of natural gas or propane gas. Whether your home is on a natural gas line with your power company or you have a propane tank, you won’t have to worry about refilling any time soon. Portable generators on the other hand, have to be refilled like a car, limiting the amount of time it is able to power your home.
3. Increased Safety
Home generators help keep your family safe by providing a safer and more stable source of power during emergencies and power outages. With a generator, you do not have to worry about creating a fire hazard using candles or being limited to using your lights only due to a smaller portable generator.
