Philadelphia Residential Standby Generators
Hughes Electric Inc. is made up of a team of certified electricians, and as such, we know a thing or two about electrical needs in Philadelphia!
Available in a natural gas or liquid propane form, standby generators are useful items for many households. Especially if you work from home, they can save you from the disastrous results of a sudden power outage.
If your electrical system stops working, your generator will sense that and switch over to providing power for your home. And, when the power is back on, it will switch right back! Whether you’re looking to protect your frozen food, ensure your TV shows don’t get interrupted, or not lose pages of writing on your desktop computer, an emergency backup generator could be a wise investment.
Do I Need a Standby Generator?
Blackouts are unpredictable. They’re frustrating and can last from a few hours to a few days. Sure, if your power goes off for half an hour you’re not going to be put out too much. Your food isn’t going to go bad in your fridge and you can wait a bit to get back to the TV. The worst thing that could happen is that you didn’t get to save what you were working on or playing on the computer.
But, in cases of longer outages, an electric backup generator will be a lifesaver! While other homes on the block are sitting in the dark, your home will be a beacon of light. In fact, you won’t even notice that an outage is taking place.
And, with the potential to provide 3,000 hours of use, a generator can get you through days at a time of power difficulties.
What Generator do I Need?
