Why Install a Standby Generator?
Wondering whether a home generator makes sense for you? Here are just a few of the reasons homeowners invest in the upgrade:
- Maintain safety in emergencies by maintaining normal lighting — no need for dangerous candles
- Preserve comfort and convenience when the lights go out, with climate control and entertainment preserved
- Reduce the risk of damage to your property from failed sump pumps etc.
- Minimize the risk of wasted food and perishables
- Keep important electronics, such as medical devices and sources of information, operable
Whole-Home vs. Portable Generators
If you already own a portable backup generator, you may not understand why you’d want to invest in having a whole-home generator installed on your property. But there are significant differences in the benefits offered by a portable generator.
Whole-home generators tend to be quieter and more efficient. They use either gas lines or stable fuel sources like propane, supply power through your normal outlets when you have an outage, and they require far less effort to turn on safely in an emergency. There’s no risk of accidentally starting an electrical fire with a professionally installed generator!

Frequently Asked Questions About Whole-Home Generators
What is the life expectancy of a standby generator?
A good standby generator can last between 25 to 35 years if you properly maintain your system.
Schedule annual tune-ups and run a 10-minute test cycle every week. Pay particular attention to regular spark plug changes and air filter cleaning.
Should you run a generator during a hurricane?
Yes, you can, but your generator needs to run in a dry space, so you’ll need a cover or tent that still allows ventilation.
You shouldn’t run your standby generator indoors because it can cause carbon monoxide buildup. You should also keep your equipment at least 20 feet from your doors and windows.
How long can you run a generator?
Most standby generators can power a mid-sized home for 3,000 hours. That’s plenty of scope for lengthy blackouts.
Portable generators can only store a few days of fuel, so their running time can be limited.
How much power does a standby generator produce?
Standby generators can produce up to 59,000 watts of power, so they’re the perfect solution to keep your lights, appliances, and electronics when a major storm or downed power line knocks the power out.
Standby generators can even power your business, so you don’t have to worry about damaged or lost inventory.
