Living along the gorgeous coastline of Florida means you have to be prepared to deal with Mother Nature’s wrath from time to time. Strong storms are known for knocking out the power to homes. Depending on the type and strength of the storm you are dealing with and where you live, you could be forced to go several days or possibly a week or more without power. An electrician in Florida can help you get ready to ride out the next storm without worrying about the electricity going out by installing a standby generator. At Elcon Electric, we understand how important it is to your comfort and security to have a backup power system and are ready to help you get ready to ride out the next storm.
A standby generator is not the same as a portable generator. The standby version is a permanent fixture on your house. It is hardwired into your home’s main electric panel by a certified electrician, which means your home will operate as it does now. The outlets will be powered. You won’t have to run electrical cords to your refrigerator and such.
There are numerous sizes of generators available. The size of generator you need will depend on the size of your home and your power needs. This can be a little confusing. Your best option would be to talk with a trained electrician experienced in generator installation. Your electrician will need to do an inspection of your home and will ask you questions about what you want to have available to run on the generator. From there, the generator will be ordered and installed. You won’t have to worry about flipping a switch or doing anything special when the power goes out. The generator will automatically kick on the second the main electric goes out. Give Elcon Electric a call today and schedule your standby generator consultation.
