Home Standby Generators
Preserving Your Safety & Comfort at All Costs
There are certain things in life that you don’t truly appreciate until they’re gone. Take, for instance, your home’s power. You use it every single day, but do not realize how much you rely on it until the lights suddenly go out. But, by that point, you’re at the full disposal of your township to repair the utility line and get your power up and running again.
Here at Integra Electrical, we believe that homeowners deserve better.
Rather than relying on others to restore your power, we help you take matters into your own hands by installing for you your very own home standby generator.
More at Stake than Meets the Eye
Losing power can affect everything from convenience to health. A power outage might not be serious for the family living in mild temperatures that is comfortable counting on their township to make the repair.
However, for the family that’s living in excessive heat or cold, power is precious. Losing power will take a direct hit on some of the home’s most essential appliances, such as the furnace, air conditioner, refrigerator, sump pump, security system and more. One of the most detrimental circumstances is when someone that’s dependent on their medicine can no longer use their supply because it cannot be refrigerated.
How Does a Standby Generator Work?
A home standby generator does more than keep the power going—it also has the capacity to know when it’s time to step in and help, versus when it can step aside and let your utility line get back to work.
Returning power to your home within seconds, these generators will kick in full-force, even when you are not home. Free of extension cords and gas tanks, your generator will get to work without any involvement on your part. You can also decide whether you want power to disperse throughout your entire electrical system, or through specific dedicated circuits that connect to your home’s most vital appliances.
When the utility line voltage is repaired, the automatic transfer switch immediately detects this new power source and will hand the reigns back over to your utility lines. To guarantee that your system is always on deck and ready to save the day, your standby generator will run a 10- to12-minute self-test cycle on a weekly basis.
