3 Things to Consider Before Buying a Standby Generator, Henrietta, New York

Just a few years ago, owning a standby generator seemed like a luxury. However, with power outages occurring more frequently and major storms sweeping through upstate New York, having a guaranteed source of electricity is becoming a necessity. In addition to installing the most effective water purification systems in Rochester, Anderson Water Systems also provides standby power generators to help get you through the next power outage. Here are some things to consider before purchasing yours:

  • The size of the generator affects both the price and the amount of power it generates. Before settling on a model, decide what you would want to use during a power outage. If you think you will need to run your central air conditioning, for example, you may need a much larger unit.
  • In areas where natural gas utilities are available, the generator will be powered by natural gas. However, bear in mind that in many areas without natural gas, you will have to find room for an exterior propane fuel tank, if you are not currently using propane.
  • A main breaker determines the maximum amount of power your house can pull at once. However, you are almost never using that much, so determine what percentage of your total power capacity you wish the generator to engage.

Standby generators are large, complex pieces of equipment and should only be installed by trained professionals. If you are considering securing your power supply with your own generator, give Anderson Water Systems a call to discuss options and schedule a free consultation at (800) 836-2509. Visit them online or follow them on Facebook.
