Generac® Whole House Generators
Keep Your Home's Electrical System Running During a Power Outage Emergency
What happens in your home when the power goes out?
When adverse weather shuts everything down, or rolling blackouts sweep through your neighborhood? Are you prepared when you get the warning that a flood, an electrical storm, or an ice storm is headed your way? Upstate Electrical Solutions helps homeowners keep the power on 24/7 with Generac® Whole House Generators professionally installed and serviced by our team of expert licensed electricians
You might already have a portable generator on hand — the kind you take on a camping trip or to a tailgate party. But is that enough? Will it keep you comfortable and safe when you need heat or air conditioning? What will you do when you run out of fuel (which will be hard to find in a local emergency)?
As the weather gets more extreme and the electrical grid struggles to keep up with demand, it may be time for you to consider whole house generator installation. Take a look to see what a whole house generator can do and whether it's the best standby generator for your home.
What Is a Whole House Generator?
A whole house generator is a generator that is hard-wired into your home's electrical system. When the power goes out, for whatever reason, your whole house generator switches on automatically. You don't need to power anything up or run around the house (or the potentially dangerous outdoors), running miles of extension cords everywhere.
Your whole house generator is connected to a reliable source of fuel (often propane or natural gas) to keep your home's electrical system running. It provides the heat and power you need during an emergency situation, even if you're not home when the calamity strikes.
Uses and Benefits of a Whole House Generator
When the power goes out, you may be stuck with no electricity for hours — or even days or more. Without electricity, you're subjected to the dangers of extreme heat or extreme cold with no way to protect yourself. You lose the ability to work from home or to enjoy entertainment. The food in your refrigerator and freezer can be spoiled. And, most importantly, any life-saving health care equipment ceases to function, putting members of your family at extreme risk.
With a whole house generator, you know that, wherever you are, the power has turned back on as soon as a power outage hits your home. That's because whole house generators are automatic standby generators, which means they stay on standby until needed, then click on automatically.
Your whole house generator protects the work equipment you have running in your home. It keeps you from losing data on your computers. It powers medical devices, so you don't have to risk going without your CPAP machine, home dialysis machine, respirator, powered wheelchair or other life-support devices.
What to Consider When Choosing a Whole House Generator
Generac created the home backup generator category and is the #1 selling brand of home backup generators.
generators are preferred by 7 out of every 10 homeowners who invest in home backup power, and Upstate Electrical Solutions is proud to offer this quality product to homeowners in Greenville and Upstate, SC.
A permanently installed Generac home backup generator protects your home automatically. It runs on natural gas or liquid propane (LP) fuel, and sits outside just like a central air conditioning unit. A home backup generator delivers power directly to your home's electrical system, backing up your entire home or just the most essential items.
If you're thinking of adding a whole house generator to your home's electrical system
, you should consider the differences between various whole house generators to determine what you need. Two key factors in this choice are generator capacity and the type of fuel the generator uses.
The size of your whole home generator is linked to the size of your home. Generators are classified by the wattage they produce (e.g., a 20-kilowatt generator produces 20,000 watts of power). The size of your home and the number of appliances you need to keep powered up determine the size of the generator you need.
For example, a medium-size home that needs to keep heating and air conditioning systems working is likely to need a 20- to 24-kW generator.
