You have probably heard about home generators in the past, but have never really given it much thought. Maybe you didn’t own your home at the time, didn’t have a family, or never thought of what it would be like to live without electricity for a few hours to several days or weeks. As generators continue to rise in popularity, you are likely revisiting the idea and have a few questions. Your Fort Lauderdale electrician will provide a few answers to some of the most common questions. If you have additional questions and concerns, call Elcon Electric can provide you with more information.
Do You Need a Generator?
While this is a question only you can truly answer, there are a few reasons you could justify a true need for a generator. If you have a loved one who relies on electrical-powered medical equipment, a generator is definitely a necessity. Families with young children will realize that major disruptions can cause some very strong emotions in kids. Being unable to have a light on, play their favorite game or watch their favorite show before bed time can be very stressful to them. Nobody can tell you there is a real need for a generator, but think of your life without being able to run to the refrigerator, charge your cell phone or use the microwave and then make a decision.
How Do You Install a Generator?
The short answer is you don’t. This is a job for an electrician in Fort Lauderdale. The electrician will connect the generator to your home in a way that is safe for you and your family and the people who work on the power lines. Your electrician will explain how the generator operates. In most cases, a switch is installed that will turn on the generator seconds after power is lost to your home. This can also be done manually.
