The Benefits of Generac Generators

Why choose a Generac brand generator for your home or business in Gaithersburg? It’s all in the perks of course, and Generac offers many:

  • Reliability. Generac isn’t at the top of the industry for no reason! Generac generators are built to perform and to last, helping you stay secure in your home for years to come.
  • Solid warranties. Generac offers extensive warranties for generators that receive routine maintenance services, so you know you’ve got a product you can trust.
  • Fuel options. Choose between propane or natural gas according to availability and personal preference.
  • Versatile generator solutions. Generac offers generators in a wide array of sizes, everything from small portable units to simply keep lights or a fridge running, all the way to systems that can power an entire home without any trouble at all.
  • Automatic transfer availability. Automatic transfer switches will instantly swap over your home from utility power to your home generator without so much as a blink, making accessing generator power quick and safe.

Transfer Switch for Your Portable Generators

A transfer switch allows you to connect a portable generator to your household circuit breaker. It makes it possible to power all critical appliances permanently connected to your house grid. It is the best solution that follows all building codes and safety measures.

Backup Generators for Whole-House Purposes

A permanently installed Generac whole-home backup generator protects your home automatically. It runs on natural gas or liquid propane (LP) fuel, and it sits outside just like a central air conditioning unit.

How Does a Generac Home Backup Generator Work?

Generac’s home backup generators, also known as standby generators, are a permanent solution to power outages. When the power fails, your generator starts and automatically supplies electricity to your home. Generac home generators run off your natural gas or liquid propane supply, so you don’t need a separate fuel supply. For safety reasons, we install generators on a concrete plinth outside your home.

How Do I Choose the Right Generator?

The first step is deciding the size generator you require. This depends on whether you want to supply power to the entire house or only to essential circuits. We can supply multiple circuit transfer panels to power those circuits you need or whole-home generator transfer switches. Our experienced team can assess your needs and help you choose the best configuration for your home.

What’s Involved With Installing a Home Backup Generator?

The first step is to prepare a foundation for the Generac generator at a convenient spot outside your home, where we install the generator and its durable aluminum housing. Our licensed electricians then run a power supply to your utility box and install the transfer switch according to codes for Howard, Montgomery or Frederick Counties. We also run a supply line from your natural gas or LPG supply. We test the generator, making certain it starts reliably and powers everything in your home.

Why Install a Standby Generator?

Power outages are a common occurrence throughout most of Maryland. Reasons include high winds, storms and adverse winter weather. Although many outages are short, it’s not uncommon for some residents to be without power for a day or more. 

Unlike portable generators, which can power a few appliances at the most, whole home generators provide the backup power you need to power your lights, refrigerator, air conditioning and heating. That’s why Generac generator installation is one of our most popular services!

Importance of Professional Generator Maintenance

Just like a car, your generator needs regular maintenance. Typical services carried out by our technicians include topping up oil, cleaning filters, checking spark plugs, and performing battery maintenance. Without regular maintenance, it’s more likely that your generator won’t start when required or will fail prematurely. We also offer repair services for standby generators.
