Automatic Standby Generators

When a major power outage strikes, you will immediately have multiple worries on your hands. One worry you don’t want: struggling outside in the dark, or in the middle of a snowstorm, to fumble with a whole–house generator in order to turn it on. A whole–house generator is an excellent way to protect a home from the discomforts and inconveniences of extended power losses—but when the generator itself turns into an inconvenience to activate, then you need to have the power of an automatic standby generator instead.

Our team at Carney Plumbing Heating & Cooling cares about keeping your family comfortable, safe, and out of the dark should a long power outage occur. To this end, we offer installation of convenient automatic standby generators. We will also repair and maintain the generators we install: you will have the peace of mind that your generator is always prepared to come to life when you need it.

How an Automatic Generator Works

A standard whole–house generator can provide sufficient electrical power for a home (as long as it received quality professional installation), but it will only turn on manually. As the name implies, an automatic standby generator comes on automatically when the power for a home goes out. You won’t have to wade into a storm or brave freezing temperatures in the dark to attempt to get the generator working whenever the power fails. You also won’t have to worry about the power going out when you’re away from home, leaving you to return to a refrigerator filled with spoiled food.

For an automatic standby generator to work properly, it must be professionally wired into the home’s electrical system. This way, the generator can tell when the power in the system has failed and activate itself. Professionals like those at Carney Plumbing Heating & Cooling will handle the work of wiring the new generator into your home so that it will not only turn on when its needed, but it won’t accidentally overpower the circuitry and trip breakers.

Professional Standby Generator Installation and Service

It is impossible to correctly install a new whole–house generator—of any kind—without professional training and experience. There will also be a high risk that the generator is too small and incapable of providing the electrical wattage necessary to power your appliances, or that it is too large and will overwhelm your home’s circuits. Furthermore, an automatic standby generator requires extra steps to make sure that it will come on as soon as its services are required.

You will only need to use your generator occasionally after installation; in fact, in the best case scenario, you will never need it at all! Because the generator does receive significant use, it can start to fall into disrepair without you realizing it. To prevent this from happening, make sure to schedule annual service from Carney Plumbing Heating & Cooling to take care of any generator we install before the storm season arrives. You can also count on us for repair work should your generator break down.
