Consider a Stand-By Generator in San Antonio

What do you do if you lose power to your home? The truth is that you can’t do very much, unless you are one of the few homeowners who have a whole house stand-by generator in San Antonio. Having an emergency power supply is not simply a luxury, but an extremely useful fallback measure in the event of power grid failures.

Blackouts Can Be More than Inconvenient

For some families, a power outage longer than a half hour or so can have consequences a lot more serious than having to forego the ball game on TV. In wintertime, colder temperatures can be a serious problem for elderly folk and if their home is heated using electricity, a power outage can seriously threaten their wellbeing. Similarly, for anyone who is reliant on electronic medical equipment in the home, such as a dialysis machine, being without electricity simply isn’t an option that bears thinking about.

With the prices of whole-house stand-by generators coming down, it’s no wonder an increasing number of people are investing in them as a way to maintain power continuously, whatever the state of the mains grid. As well as falling prices, the technology behind these powerful generators is improving and now they are much quieter, more efficient machines than they were a few years ago. If you are among of the growing number of people running a home-based business, a stand-by generator is a particularly important consideration. The continuity of your business may well depend on a sustained supply of electricity during a mains outage of more than 24 hours.

Advantages of a Stand-By Generator for San Antonio Homes

Of course it’s possible to purchase a portable generator for emergencies. However these units only allow you to power one or two small appliances or items of equipment. Moreover, setting up a portable generator is not the easiest thing to do, especially if you find yourself in the dark due to a night time mains outage. This is where whole-house generators deliver far greater advantages.

A whole-house stand-by generator is installed onto a concrete pad in the grounds of your home and is hard wired into your electrical system breaker panel via a transfer switch. In the event of a mains power interruption, the switch isolates your electrical system from the power grid and starts up the generator. From that point on, you have a normal supply of electricity into your home, courtesy of natural gas or diesel, depending on how your generator is fuelled.

The transfer switch detects any return of the mains power and after doing so, shuts down the generator, reconnects your breaker panel to the grid and allows you to start receiving mains power once more. With this kind of system you have constant, uninterruptable power to your entire home without needing to lift a finger.
