A portable generator can be a great way to ensure you still have power if you live in an area with frequent storms or power outages. If you’re considering purchasing a portable generator or already have one, a certified electrician can help.
What is a Portable Generator?
Portable generators are devices that turn an onboard alternator into electricity. There are many different types of portable generators, including those that run on gas or diesel, liquid propane, or even solar power. You can connect extension cords to directly power different areas or appliances in your home if you lose power. If you live in an area where outages are common or you have appliances that need to continue running during an outage, a portable generator can be a smart investment.
Why Would I Need a Certified Electrician For Portable Generator Installation?
Although you can power appliances directly with a portable generator, it’s best to have a transfer switch, or a miniature electrical panel. This allows you to power whole circuits in your home rather than specific devices. A certified electrician can not only install a transfer switch, but they can also pull the right permits and ensure it integrates seamlessly with your existing electrical setup. There are also various types and sizes of transfer switches available, and a certified electrician can help you explore the right option for your home’s needs. Finally, your home may need an electrical service upgrade before your portable generator can fully power your appliances.
