What is a Backup Generator?

A backup generator is the standard generator type. It consists of a generator unit, often powered by gas, which is wired into your home’s electrical grid. Most backup generators are started manually when the power goes out, which makes them a fairly simple and low maintenance option for homeowners. They often are only large enough to power a select few important appliances during a power outage, usually things like phones, computers, and a few lights. There are larger versions that power more of the house, so before you decide on one you should consider the purpose for which you need it. If you aren’t sure what size or type you need, just give us a call. We’ll help you through the whole process, so that you’ll end up with a generator that will meet your needs.

Backup Generator Installation in Chelmsford and the Surrounding Area

Installing a backup generator may seem like a simple process, but it actually isn’t. The generator itself must be secured properly, to make sure it isn’t accidentally knocked over or even stolen. Then, the unit must be wired into your home’s electrical grid properly. If done incorrectly this could have disastrous results, including electrocution, fire, and damage to the generator. For that reason, it is highly inadvisable for anyone to install a backup generator without expert knowledge. If you need a backup generator installed, call Ryan Gath Electric. All of our technicians have years of professional experience in the installation of backup generators. We’ll make sure that your generator is installed correctly and safely. When you activate your generator for the first time, you can do it secure in the knowledge that it was installed by some of the best in the industry.
