4 Questions To Ask Your Electrician About a Whole-Home Generator

4 Questions To Ask Your Electrician About a Whole-Home Generator

Power outages are common. Whether it’s hurricane season, or a brutal winter storm without some type of backup, your home could be in for some dark days.

If you’re considering bolstering your home’s electrical backup precautions, consider a whole-home generator. Whole-home generators are becoming a popular way for Fairfax and Leesburg, VA, and surrounding northern Virginia and Maryland homeowners to keep their homes safe and comfortable during prolonged periods without power.

Whole-home standby generators offer power levels higher than portable generators — their rating ranges from 5 kilowatts up to hundreds of kilowatts. This makes them the best choice for dealing with a long-term power outage. While the initial cost is higher than a portable generator, a whole-home generator will increase the value of your home and protect your family.

Here are four questions you should ask your electrician before choosing a generator:

  1. What is the amperage size of your main panel?

  2. Where is the best location in your home for a generator-to-gas hookup?

  3. Which style of transfer switch would be best for your home?

  4. Are you interested in an eco-friendly transfer switch?

The most important question is for you; ask yourself what you’d like to keep operating in your home during a power outage. If your answer is “everything!” a generator is your next step.

When storms are on the horizon, call F.H. Furr Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning & Electrical to help you select the best whole-home generator to fit your family’s needs and budget.
