What Are the Benefits of Temporary Backup Generators?
Temporary backup generators are a great cost-effective means of temporary power during a power outage. At Mel Carr Electric, we are fully qualified and experienced with the hookup necessary to make these units a part of your home safety plan.
In the event of a power outage, these units would be wheeled into place and plugged into an outlet on the outside of your home, away from any windows or entrances. Though we do not sell these generators, we would provide you with the correct cord and outlet to make this system run up to 10 circuits in your home! We also install a transfer switch to ensure that the power from the generator and the power from the power company are kept separate.
These units do require a little work on the part of the homeowner to get the power back during an outage. Specifically, you must move and start the generator, and then you must switch over the power at your panel box.
Temporary Generator Installation
Our team takes great care when installing a new generator system for your home.
We start with a site assessment. During this step, we determine the most strategic location for placement, accounting for factors such as ventilation, access, and distance.
Then, we install and test the generator, ensuring proper wattage, voltage, and frequency. Then, our experienced technicians can install transfer switches and other necessary equipment for a smooth transition. We want to make sure your home can easily switch to generator power.
Proper fuel storage and maintenance are critical to ensuring the longevity and effectiveness of the generator. Our team can provide guidance and support every step of the way. We can give you tips for keeping your generator in top shape, reducing the need for a replacement.
Types of Temporary Generators
There are various types of temporary generators available for different power needs.
Here are some common types:
These generators are compact. You can easily move them around. People often use them for outdoor events or as a power source during outages.
Inverter generators are known for their quiet operation and stable power output. They are suitable for sensitive electronics. People often use them for camping or recreational activities.
Gasoline generators run on gasoline and are readily available. They are commonly used for small power needs, such as powering tools or appliances during outdoor activities.
Diesel generators are more fuel-efficient than gasoline generators. They are often used in commercial or industrial settings. They are known for their durability and longer running times.
