Benefits of a Standby Generator

Posted on: November 3, 2014

As the winter months approach, it’s time to start making your plan for potential power outages that often come with the yearly DMV snowfall. With the Farmer’s Almanac predicting a particularly harsh winter, the sounder the plan is, the more comfortable you’ll be when the cold hits!

Perhaps the best strategy to prevent against home blackouts is to install a stand-by generator. A standby generator supply backup power to your home when the grid goes down, keeping your home toasty and warm against the cold outside. But what else can a standby generator help your home with? Let the experts at Kolb Electric help!

What Can A Standby Generator Do for Your Home?

Obviously, the best thing about a standby generator is that it will provide electricity to your home when your power goes out. But aside from that, it has a few distinct advantages over your basic generator that requires a manual start. A standby generator:

  • Will kick on within ten seconds of determining power loss so your life won’t miss a beat.
  • Is powered by Generac’s OHVI® engine designed specifically for generators.
  • Boasts the easiest installation and best value on the market, with many models pre-packaged with a pre-wired transfer switch. All models include a mounting pad.
  • Features TruePower™ Technology, which provides clean, smooth operation of sensitive electronics and appliances.
  • Has a Quiet-Test™ mode for a weekly self-test that’s quieter than other brands.
  • Is the most environmentally friendly generator on the market – Generac generators consume less fuel and release fewer emissions.

Despite common conception, standby generators are actually very affordable. These days, there are standby generators available from as small as three kilowatts, which are both affordable and powerful enough to provide supplementary emergency power to essential electrical systems.
