Do you enjoy having electricity in your home? Of course you do! Our lives are centered around electricity. When we don’t have a steady source, we get a little antsy. It disrupts nearly everything we do; work, relax, cook and even entertain. There are times when Mother Nature gets a little rowdy and the power grid goes down. It may not even be nature’s fault. Sometimes accidents, animals or blackouts can leave a home without power. You could avoid dealing with the aftermath of having no power by having a standby generator installed by an electrician in Fort Lauderdale. The team at Elcon Electric can help you take care of the installation process.
A standby generator should not be confused with a portable generator. While they have the same function, one is a stationary, more permanent fixture while the other can be wheeled around and put away in a shed when not in use. There are some advantages to both, but overall, if you are a homeowner who wants to prepare for a power outage, the standby generator is your best bet. The standby generators are quieter due to the metal box they are enclosed in. They are more convenient and do not require you to pull out a cumbersome generator from the shed and then go about starting the thing and running extension cords to it through windows and doors in your home.
One of the only downsides to the standby generator is the cost. They are more expensive than the portable generators in most cases, but the benefits usually warrant the additional investment. A standby generator must be installed by a certified electrician. Fort Lauderdale homeowners will feel more comfortable knowing the generator has been hooked up to their electric panel safely and the right way. If you want to make your home storm ready, give Elcon Electric a call today and schedule your installation.
