Benefits of a Home Generator

Sure, a small power outage isn’t bad. At the worst, they’re a small nuisance. Sometimes a power outage can even be exciting.

It can be an opportunity to set down your iPhones, crack out the flashlights and candles, and have a family game night around the dinner table.

But there are times when power outages aren’t going to be a fun event. There will be times when your family needs electricity.

Maybe it is during an extremely cold spell, or when a loved one is ill. Maybe a fun evening without electricity has turned into two or three days without a working refrigerator, hot water, or even an oven for cooking?

A reliable home generator could be the solution to all your problems.

Powered by propane or natural gas, residential backup generators provide homeowners with safety and security during extended blackouts. So much of our daily lives require electricity. Home generators allow us to use our heaters, air conditioners, refrigerators and more. How long can a generator last before needing to be refueled? Typically, it can last for several days. Hopefully, that’s as long as you need it!

Generators may seem like a luxury item. But don’t think of a backup generator as a luxury, think of them as an insurance policy. There is no telling when you need it. Whenever an outage does occur though, you’ll certainly be glad you have one.

DIY Generator Installation

If you have made the sensible choice and bought a generator for your family, you might be considering installing it yourself. At MF Electric & Communications INC, we would advise against that. We suggest you continue to err on the side of good sense and call a professional.

If you improperly install your home generator, many things can go wrong. Some of these things won’t be noticeable right away. For example, you run the risk of increasing the fuel consumption of your generator with a flawed installation. While everything might seem fine your generator could be using significantly more fuel than normal. This not only leads to a spike in utility payments, but it can also shorten the lifespan of your backup generator system.

If the installation process is a complete disaster you could even break your generator. Many warranties don’t cover unlicensed installations, so you may also risk losing your warranty altogether. This is one of the biggest reasons you should always contact a licensed electrician to install your generator. Even if you do think you’re capable of installing it, you should keep your warranty in mind. Future mishaps could occur where you will be wishing your generator was still protected by warranty!

There is also the issue of electrocution. Generators need to be hooked up to your electrical panel. Do you feel confident enough to handle such high voltage circuitry and expensive equipment? Electrical work not only requires expertise, but also the right equipment. Don’t rely on old tools and an old pair of gloves for this kind of work. Call a professional today!
