Generator Installation: Ensuring Power Backup for Your Home

Generator Installation: Ensuring Power Backup for Your Home


Posted in
Published on June 1, 2024

Few things are more frustrating than losing power at home. You can’t charge your devices, cook food, or use other appliances without electricity. While some outages only last a few minutes, others could leave you in the dark for several hours. 

Professional generator installation is the best way to avoid this problem. Generators provide power when the grid goes down. This way, you don’t have to worry about the food in your refrigerator going bad or essential devices not working. 

Our H&E Comfort Services team understands the benefits of having a backup power source you can always rely on. We provide installation services for multiple types of generators and can help you choose the perfect setup for your lifestyle, budget, and needs.

Why Should You Install a Generator?

Have you ever been without power for more than a few hours? If so, you know how difficult it can be to get things done, especially at night when the lights go out.

Since a generator brings power to your home when your primary power source fails, you’ll have peace of mind knowing you’ll never experience interruptions. You may not realize just how important having this assurance is until it’s gone.

Having a generator at the ready is crucial if anyone in your household relies on medical devices that need a constant power source, such as a chair lift, CPAP machine, or oxygen concentrator. Also, if you work from home, you can rest easy knowing a local outage won’t impact your workday.

Regardless of your needs, having a constant source of power means never having to look for flashlights in the dark or skipping a hot meal.

Pick the Right Type of Generator

Not two homes are the same, and neither are their electrical needs. When considering generator installation, you first need to decide which type is best for your needs:

  • Portable generators: These are a more affordable option that you can move around from room to room. Their small size makes them best for minor power needs, like charging devices. 
  • Whole-home standby generators: These are best for keeping the whole house powered during an outage. They automatically kick on when your primary power source fails.
  • Natural gas generators: These use your natural gas supply to power on, which means you need to connect them to your gas line. 

Get a Reliable Power Backup for Your Home With H&E Comfort Services

Hiring a professional is the best way to ensure a successful generator installation. Our H&E Comfort Services team follows a meticulous step-by-step process for an efficient installation. 

If you want a whole-home generator, we first install a transfer switch to connect the unit so that it provides seamless power backup when the grid experiences an outage. Then, we connect the generator using proper grounding techniques to create safe electrical connections and a system you can count on.
