Why Install a Generator on Your Property?

It could be a smart idea to install a generator at your home, office, or workspace to deliver power in moments when the grid is unavailable, either because of a utility issue, severe weather, or a natural disaster. A backup system ensures you have the electricity you need in moments when it would otherwise be scarce. This means you can keep your most essential equipment like freezers and sump pumps running, in addition to security systems, lighting, electronic devices, and other appliances.

The Different Types of Generators

There are several types of generators to choose from on the market today. Each has its specific advantages, as well as certain needs when it comes to maintenance and repairs. 

Common types of generators include: 

  • Portable: These are the most affordable option, and you can use them for all kinds of things, from powering tools on a construction site to keeping appliances running and the lights on in your home during an outage. 
  • Inverter: This is a type of portable generator that features an engine that adjusts its speed to meet load demands. What this means is that it is much more energy efficient than a standard portable generator, and it is safe to use for powering electronics like phones or laptops.
  • Standby: These are permanent backup systems that automatically kick on and produce power when there is an outage. The right generator could feasibly provide ample energy to your home or commercial location for extended periods, so long as it has fuel and you do not overwork it. Some of the most common standby generators use either natural gas or gasoline. 
  • Solar: These systems rely on both solar panels and batteries to harness and store usable energy. A solar backup generator is a great option for property owners who want to protect themselves with clean energy. There are also zero fuel costs for these types of generators and maintenance is often minimal.

No matter what type of generator you choose, it is important to make sure it can meet your needs now and in the future.

    “Kent electric came today to quote a job for pendant lighting. They were able to provide a reasonable quote and do the work right on the spot. While he was here, I had questions for Victor regarding other small projects. He was able to give me honest feedback about what I could handle myself, and an idea on cost for items I'd need a professional for.
    Their work was clean, fast, and came out great. Couldn't be happier!”

To ensure your generator is at the ready, we recommend that you do a few things on a weekly, monthly, and annual basis. 

These include:

  • Checking your generator during the week for any leaks or visible malfunctions. Depending on what your system’s manufacturer recommends, you might also run it for a short period. 
  • Cleaning your generator and the area around monthly, in addition to performing a more in-depth check on its ventilation systems, wiring, battery, exhaust, and starter plugs. It is also advisable to run your generator and have it support your full electrical load each month. 
  • Getting an annual inspection from a professional who can change your generator’s oil and perform repairs or maintenance that require more technical skill.
