The Benefits of Installing a Standby Generator
Keeping a generator in your home or business is a great idea in hurricane-prone areas like Virginia Beach. Generators can help when a power source is not available, or in times when the power goes out and you need to continue to provide electricity to your home or commercial space.
What Is a Standby Generator?
A standby generator is a generator that is permanently installed and is connected to natural gas or a propane tank. These generators have the ability to provide power to the whole house, for an extended period, when outages occur.
Standby generators can be purchased in different sizes, so that they can provide the correct amount of electricity that may be needed in a particular home. They must be installed by a professional, like American Mechanical, so that all code compliance is met.
Because the VA Beach area is prone to blackouts and bad weather conditions during certain times of the year, a standby generator is best for making sure you are prepared during an emergency.
Due to its permanent installation and ability to run for days on end, standby generators will help you run all your appliances, lighting, and help heat or cool your house.
