One of the main benefits to having a home generator is that you’ll never be without power. You can have your power on while all your neighbors are without. Now doesn’t that sound like something you’d need? If you’ve been without power before, then you know how much you appreciate it when it comes back on. You never have to go without when you call OT Electric.
At OT Electric, you’ll be well taken care of by our electricians. Our electricians have the knowledge and are licensed & bonded to install a whole home generator. You can’t go wrong when you have your electrical services done by OT Electric.
There’s a plus side to switching from your grid power over to generator power. If you live in an area that’s prone to power outages, then this is a good investment. Why go without power when you don’t have to?
There are some differences between a portable generator and a whole home system. A whole home system takes care of all the power in your home and is not isolated to just one room of the house. A whole home generator may cost a little more than portable ones, but it’s worth the money as your home can be fully functional during an emergency.
Home generators are fully automatic which means that you don’t have to turn anything on. When there is an outage, it will come on automatically. You won’t have to stumble around in the dark trying to find a switch like you would with a portable one.
Size matters when it comes to your home generator. The size of it all depends on the size of your home and what appliances you want it to run. Your appliances need to be running constantly such as your refrigerator and many others. Make the wise decision and choose one that can run multiple appliances at once.
Another benefit to using a whole home generator is-the unit is a portable fixture. You don’t have to move it from room to room, in a hurry, in order to get power back to specific appliances. A whole home unit does all of that automatically.
All types of generators, including portable ones, need some type of maintenance done to them. Always have an inspection done to your home generator to ensure that it’s working properly when bad situations arise. You’ll feel a lot better and more secure with a yearly inspection.
Get your home generator from the ones that you know and trust most in the area. OT Electric will have yours installed safely and quickly. This year you’ll be better prepared to take on those hurricane and storms.
No matter how urgent any electrical repairs seem, it’s never okay to attempt to handle them on your own. Trying to take care of electrical problems without professional training is extremely dangerous. If you or someone else isn’t hurt during your attempt, there’s still a chance that you’ve left something undone that poses a huge risk to you, your home, or your family. In fact, faulty electrical wiring is the number one cause of house fires in the United States, according to the National Fire Protection Agency. So in order to make sure that your home is safe, always rely on a professional for any electrical services.
Circuit breakers that keep tripping, a flickering light on the back porch, or an exhaust fan that just won’t work properly—all of these are common problems homeowners face that have something to do with their electrical systems. But figuring out where the problem is stemming from can take a lot of work. Our OT Electric technicians will find out exactly what’s causing the problem, and what other problem may be happening—or beginning to happen—for the same reasons. Then we’ll nip them in the bud.
