Generator Questions? Electrician in West Palm Beach Responds

Florida residents are well aware of the hurricane storm season that is fast approaching. While most native Floridians are used to the storms and the aftermath they leave behind, wouldn’t it be nice not to have to worry about the common power outages associated with the storm season? Your electrician in West Palm Beach answers some of the most common questions about generators.

Why a Generator?

A generator can keep your family living comfortably when the power goes out. Lights, television and cool air are a few of the little comforts of life that can make you and your family feel safe and content, no matter how nasty the weather is outside.

Hardwired or Portable Generator?

This is a question that only you can answer. Do you like convenience? Hardwired generators are by far the more convenient choice. Portable generators cost less, but will require you to pull it from a shed, pour in gasoline and then fire it up. You will then need to run extension cords to the generator.

Hardwired generators are turned on with the flip of a switch or automatically turned on when a sensor tells it there has been a power loss to the home. An electrician will need to install the generator to ensure it meets all the safety standards.

What Size of Generator Do You Need?

Size will depend on how big your home is and how much power you want to have during an outage. This is a question you will want to ask your electrician. West Palm Beach homeowners may only want to have the bare minimum amount of power to keep the refrigerator, a couple of lights and a fan running. There are plenty of options available. Elcon Electric would be more than happy to talk with you about the different sizes of generators available and what would best suit your needs.
