Have you ever been without electricity for a long period of time during an ice, snow, or heavy rain storm in the Alexandria area?
In Eastern Seaboard areas like Alexandria, VA, storms can leave you without power for hours, days, or weeks. Losing power can be devastating to homeowners and business owners alike. They can spoil your food, close your business, and even force you out of your home during a snowstorm! Having a standby generator ensures your home or business will be able to keep their lights on when the power in the area is knocked out.
If you aren’t sure how much power you’ll need, no need to worry! There are different sizes and types of Generac generators we supply, guaranteed to fit your needs. John Goudie Electric can wire a backup home generator that will power your heating or cooling system, as well as small appliances, large appliances, sump pumps, well pumps, and all the lighting in your home or business.
Always having power in your home is important to us, so that’s why we install Generac Generators. Generac is the #1 selling generator brand in the area, and has an incredible reputation for being durable and reliable. Generac provides generators in all sizes, so whether you need to power a few lights or an entire business, we’ve got you covered.
There are two different types of generators you can choose from in case of a power outage: manual transfer switch generators and standby generators. They both can power your whole home or business, but are a bit different in how they operate.
In the case of a power outage, a manual transfer switch generator will allow you to transfer power safely from the generator to your electric panel. You can power your entire home or choose to power the more important circuits until the power utility company restores electricity to your home or business.
With a standby generator, you will not have to leave your seat in case of a power outage! Within seconds of losing power, your standby generator will engage automatically and bring power back to your home or business like it was never gone.
There are numerous factors you should consider when deciding what type of generator to have installed. You home’s location, the amount of power you need, and your personal preferences make a lot of difference in the size you need. It also makes a difference if you want to supply the whole house with power, or just a few major appliances. You can always contact the experts here at John Goudie Electric, or even use Generac’s Generator Sizing Calculator.
