Nobody wants to experience a loss of electrical power to their home. The lights going out for a few minutes is an annoyance, usually requiring you to reset multiple clocks and appliances once the power comes back on. But what about those times-such as during heavy winter storms-when the power goes out and doesn't come back on for hours? Or even days? This isn't just a nuisance. It can be dangerous, especially for households with small children or people who depend on powered medical equipment. The best defense against extended power losses is to have an automatic standby generator set up for your home.
If you're in the market for the installation of a backup generator in Hillsborough, Somerville or elsewhere in Central New Jersey, you've found the people who can make it happen. Pezz Electrical Services, LLC also offers generator installation, replacement, repair, and all-important maintenance service for automatic standby generators. Get in touch with us today: Generating Comfort and Safety Since 1990!
There are different options for generators, starting with small portable generators. To handle the needs of a home, however, you'll need something that's much more powerful than a portable unit. (These are mostly beneficial for camping and to keep in the car in case of an emergency.) A whole-house generator can send the voltage necessary to keep the essentials in your home running, such as the lights and the heating system. (Keep in mind that modern gas furnaces still require electricity to run!)
But an automatic standby generator goes even farther in protecting you. This type of generator detects when the power to a house fails, and then automatically turns on to start supplying electricity. You won't have to go out into a fierce storm, or outside on a freezing night, to fumble with the generator to get it started. An automatic standby generator will also turn on to start protecting your house and family even when you're not there. Contact us today to schedule generator installation.
After you've had your automatic standby generator installed, you can't just forget about it and hope that it will always perform its job. This is a backup appliance, and to be worth its cost, you must have confidence that when the time to use it does arrive, it'll be ready to go. Otherwise, what good is it?
The secret to a reliable standby generator is regular maintenance inspections and tune-ups. Our technicians will come to your house each year, usually before the start of winter, and look over your generator to make sure that it's clean, has enough fuel, the electrical connections are tight, and anything else required to see that it will work the way it should. We'll schedule any repairs it may need.
Never look to an amateur to install a generator of any type for a house! And don't even think about trying this as a "do-it-yourself" adventure. Too much is on the line, and generators are too complicated to leave to the tinkerings of non-professionals. Call Pezz Electrical Services LLC and let our experienced generator experts take care of whatever service you require, from new installations to emergency repairs. We back up our work with a solid satisfaction guarantee.
Schedule generator installation so that the next time the power goes out in Montgomery, Princeton & Hillsborough Township, NJ, you have one of our automatic standby generators to help you out.
Yes, the location matters greatly. When installing a home standby generator, it is very important to make sure that there is enough clearance between the power generator and your home, as well as between the power generator and any combustible materials (wood, gasoline, solvents, etc.) that may be stored nearby.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has established guidelines in this regard. Be sure to research these guidelines and follow them when adding power systems for your home.
It is also important to follow the manufacturer's instructions in the installation guide for the home generator. These instructions often provide useful information about the recommended clearance needed between the power generator and the home or combustible materials nearby. If you want to play it really safe, you can have one of our technicians check your standby generator to make sure it is properly installed.
Although it may seem like a small thing, taking these steps is very important. After all, the last thing anyone wants is a fire or explosion to occur. A little advance planning can help prevent your backup plan for a power outage from becoming the cause of another kind of an emergency.
The cost of a new standby generator can vary widely. Much depends on the manufacturer, as well as the size, capacity, and output of the generator.
Manual portable generator systems can range anywhere from $1500-$4000. On the other hand, whole home stand by generator systems can range anywhere between $8000-$20,000.
Of course, as with any large purchase, price is not the only consideration. When selecting a home generator, you will want to also consider quality and reliability, as well as the reputation of the manufacturer and the dealer.
