A Standby Generator Will Not Only Help Protect Your Home and Family but It Will Also Give You Peace of Mind
Do you worry every time the power goes out about your sump pump, refrigerated items, electronics, or your family?
Do you rely on electrically powered medical equipment or work from home where electricity is essential?
If so, you may want to consider a standby generator for your home. A standby generator is permanently installed on a concrete slab or gravel bed near your house. When the power goes out, the unit comes on.
Selecting the Right Generator
If you own a second home, a standby generator can help protect it when you’re not around. The protection of a generator can help prevent expensive repairs from such things as frozen pipes or non-running sump pumps.
The size of your unit will determine the household systems and/or appliances that will remain running during the power outage. At the very minimum, you can decide to run only essential systems, such as your central air conditioning or furnace, the refrigerator, and some lights. You can also purchase a generator with enough power to supply your whole house. The experts at ARS/Rescue Rooter will be able to help you determine the size system you need based on your desired systems to keep power. They can also help you determine fuel sources, such as a gas line, a propane tank or a diesel tank. The generator installation teams at ARS/Rescue Rooter are licensed, certified and familiar with the local codes throughout the Washington DC and Northern Virginia areas.
