We have more than 30 years of experience and expertise as commercial and residential electrical contractors in the Peach State. In that time, we have fielded all types of questions from our customers, including what to do during prolonged power outages. With severe storms and other intense weather patterns hitting Atlanta, this concern becomes increasingly real with each passing year.
As seasoned Atlanta technicians, we know how much of our daily lives depend on having a steady current supply. To avoid costly interruptions to your power supply during extreme weather conditions, we highly recommend purchasing a stand-by generator.
Reliable Source of Emergency Power
A stand-by generator is permanently installed on a concrete slab outside your house. It is directly connected to the electrical panel inside your house and can provide emergency power for days or weeks at a time. Stand-by generators run on an external fuel supply such as diesel or natural gas. They come in a variety of sizes and capacities. You can buy stand-by generators to supply power only to essential circuits or to your entire house.
Choosing the Right Generator
In order to purchase the stand-by generator that is adequate for your needs, an technician has to conduct an accurate load analysis. This means he or she will determine the amount of power you need to run the appliances you want during an outage. Keep in mind that a high-capacity generator will indeed power more circuits (and more appliances), but it will also cost more. An accurate load analysis will help ensure that you purchase the stand-by generator that is sufficient for your needs.
An experienced Atlanta technician can easily install your stand-by generator for you. If you purchased a generator that is powered by natural gas, he or she will connect the generator to your existing gas line. There is no need to do this if you purchased a generator that runs on diesel. However, remember that not all gas stations have access to emergency power to run their pumps during an outage. If your generator needs gas in order to run, keep some in stock so you?ll be ready for a power outage at any time.
