Warren, OH -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/29/2016 -- Power can go out anytime. When auxiliary power is available it prevents loss from occurring whether it occurs in a home or office.
There are a multitude of options when it comes to generators. Some generators run bare minimum requirements while other generators are capable of running an entire house or office building!
Home generators are divided into two basic types; choosing which is best comes down to overall electrical requirements, available fuel sources and budget.
A transfer switch should be considered to safely use backup power in a home. A transfer switch is installed near the breaker box and provides a safe way to connect and use a generator with selected circuits inside a home or building. It is essential to prevent power from energizing lines outside where power company workers might be performing service. A transfer switch completely isolates the generator's power to selected circuits - circuits to a HVAC unit, freezer, refrigerator, lights and maybe a television for example. A homeowner must to be home when the power goes out to "transfer" the power from the line to the generator. A generator is simply plugged into a special plug on the outside of the home and then the transfer switch is turned on!
Permanent back-up generators by Generac are also available for special order. These are powered by natural gas or propane, and should be installed by a professional plumber and electrician. Automatic transfer switches are an added convenience and will activate even if someone is not present at the time of an outage. When the lights go out, they come right back on. Intelligently designed transfer switches can even manage electricity and allow occupants to alternate and choose which circuits receive power in order to save fuel or make the best use of available wattage
Stop in to either Do-Cut location in Warren or Boardman Ohio for information on back-up power. Don't be left in the dark!
