What is a Back-Up Power Generator?
A back-up power generator is a unit that is permanently installed on the outside of your home. This unit works off your home’s natural power source whether it be natural gas or propane. Your back-up power generator does not run unless your home experiences a loss of power. All of our units have a monitoring system that will automatically switch the generator on as soon as power is lost. Once power is restored the system will turn the generator off.
Why Shouldn’t I Use a Gas Generator from the Hardware Store?
While you may see a rash of gas generators going on sale around hurricane season, you should carefully consider the other thing that is prevalent during hurricane season, deaths from carbon monoxide poisoning. When you run a gas powered generator that has not been properly set up, you ruin the risk of poisoning your family. Generators that are available at your local hardware store are also not nearly as efficient as one from Papalia Home Services. We will make sure that your home’s most relied on appliances work. Even our smallest model will keep your food cold and operate a few lights while still keeping your family safe.
How Do Generator Installations Work?
When you call for your free quote, we will come out to evaluate your home and the needs you have for power in the event of a weather or electric emergency. Once we have customized a plan to you home and you approve it, we will pull all of the necessary permits. We will come out and install the system with as little interruption to your life as possible. Once the system is installed it will be tested by the installer and then again by your sales person. We will also make sure you are comfortable with your system before we leave.
