Generac Residential Generators

The Necessity of Home Backup Generators

Power outages are not merely inconveniences but potential risks to property and personal safety, especially in regions experiencing extreme weather. Ontario, in particular, faces the highest number of power disruptions in Canada, with an alarming trend of increasing outages each year. The primary causes are multifaceted, involving aging infrastructure, increased energy demand, and more frequent severe weather events.

Residential generators are designed to provide a continuous power supply during outages. These units, which typically run on natural gas, propane, or diesel, are installed outside the home, similar to HVAC systems. They are equipped with transfer switches that automatically activate the generator when power loss is detected, ensuring that critical systems such as heating, cooling, and refrigeration continue without interruption.

The use of automatic transfer switches not only provides convenience but also enhances safety by reducing the risk of electrical accidents associated with manual generator start-ups. The sophistication of these systems can completely replace the main electrical panel, integrating seamlessly into the home’s existing electrical infrastructure.

Selecting the Right Backup Generator

Choosing the correct generator involves assessing your power needs based on the size of your home and the essential appliances you need to operate during an outage. Generators come in various capacities, typically ranging from 7,000 watts to over 20,000 watts, capable of powering anything from select circuits to the entire house.

Investing in a Generac residential generator means not just buying a product but ensuring continuous comfort, safety, and convenience during unpredictable power outages. The expertise of local dealers like Platinum Electrical Contractors makes the selection, installation, and maintenance process seamless and tailored to your specific needs.
