Benefits of Installing a Whole-Home Generator

A power outage can be more than just an inconvenience: It can be dangerous in some situations, like extreme heat or cold.

Installing a whole-home generator can provide peace of mind when the power goes out, along with many other great benefits, such as:

  • No waste: A backup generator keeps food cold during power outages, so you don’t have to worry about perishables.
  • Greater comfort: HVAC systems, including gas furnaces, need reliable power to operate, so having a whole-home generator can ensure your family is comfortable, even during long outages.
  • Lower home insurance rate: A standby generator can keep your smoke detectors, fire alarms, and security systems running during outages whether you’re there or not, making your home safer.
  • Higher home value: If you ever sell your home, a well-maintained backup generator can increase your home’s value.
  • Damage protection: A generator can help you avoid flooding during a storm by keeping the sump pump working, and it can keep your home at a reasonable temperature to avoid damage from freezing or extreme heat.

Frequently Asked Questions

A portable generator must be manually set up, plugged in during a power outage, and refueled by the homeowner.

A standby generator is safely and permanently connected to your home through a transfer switch. It’s fed by a fuel supply, such as natural gas lines or a propane tank, so no refueling is required. Standby generators also have higher output capacities.

A standby generator can be sized to supply your most important devices, like refrigerators, furnaces, and air conditioners, or your entire home.

Appliances like air conditioners, stoves, and electric water heaters use the most power, while electronics like computers and televisions use far less.

Add up the power required for all your devices to determine the generator size you’ll need. You also need an extra 15% to 25% buffer for startup surges and future additions.

A standby generator can last 25 to 40 years, depending on how often it’s used and how well it’s serviced. Routine maintenance should be scheduled once a year to keep the generator operating at its best.
