Why Consider a Whole-Home Natural Gas Generator?

Friday, March 20th, 2015

Did you know there are over 3 million people without power every week due to power outages? Not all power outages last for long periods of time, but even a 24-hour outage can spoil food and cause plumbing and HVAC problems for your home. However, if you have access to a natural gas line, or already have natural gas in your home for other appliances, you may want to consider the installation of a whole-home natural gas generator for your Warrington home so that you won’t have to worry about the effects of a power outage again. Carney Plumbing Heating & Cooling offers whole-home generator services, so if you have been thinking that it’s time for a home generator, call us today!

How a Whole-Home Gas Generator Works

All generators should be sized to properly work for your home, which is something your expert can assist with. Once you determine the right size generator, the unit is installed outdoors and then connected to both your natural gas line and your home’s electrical box. Your whole-home generator is equipped with sensors that constantly monitor the power, so that should a power interruption occur, the generator immediately takes over; this is known as automatic switching. The generator will provide the power to your home’s electrical panel until the power returns, and when the power does return, the sensor will turn off the generator automatically as well.

Benefits

The benefits of having a whole-home gas generator include:

  • Safety and protection – a whole-home generator keeps your home operational, so that you can keep lights on, run and alarm system and have access to electronics.
  • Ability to keep food fresh – with a whole-home generator, the major systems in your home will be able to operate, including your electricity. This will allow you to keep your refrigerator on and maintain your food supply.
  • Comfort – your HVAC system is going to be one of the major systems powered by your generator, so you won’t have to worry about losing heat during a power outage.
