A wild storm can crop up anytime and give you just a few hours to prepare. Like you, other homeowners are probably raiding store shelves for basic staples, batteries, flashlights and anything else they will need to get them through a power outage in the event the storm proves to be a real whopper. There is a better alternative that requires you to do nothing, but enjoy nature’s show. Have a standby generator installed by an electrician in West Palm Beach. Elcon Electric is familiar with the installation process and can help you avoid the panicked frenzy that tends to precede a major storm.
Knowing your family will have electricity to stay warm, cook food and remain comfortable even with Mother Nature’s wrath booming around them is very comforting. A standby generator allows your family to continue with their normal routines in the event of a power outage. You will not be forced to rely on bread and canned foods. Your generator, if you so choose the larger variety can run your refrigerator, stove and whatever else you need to prepare a meal.
A West Palm Beach electrician will need to install the generator for you. This particular type is directly wired into your home for quick and easy operation. A power monitoring device tells the generator the second the main power has been lost to your home. This triggers the generator to turn on within seconds, reducing the amount of time you are without power to almost no time at all.
There are various sizes of generators to choose from and you will want to pick one based on the size of your home and your family’s power needs. This is something you will want to discuss with your electrician. You can call Elcon Electric today to learn more about how you can keep your family’s life running smooth in the event of a power outage.
