Benefits of Whole-Home Generators for North Shore Area Homes
Your home has many systems that rely on electricity to keep things running well. Yet power outages can happen at any time and without warning. Whole-home generators provide peace of mind that you can have reliable power, even if an outage occurs. With a whole-home generator, you can protect your:
- Heating and cooling systems
- Refrigerator, freezer, and contents
- Security and surveillance cameras
- Medical equipment
Anything that requires power can continue to run with a whole-house generator, saving you money and protecting your home.
For generators that are in need of an inspection, Cranney will send a trained, qualified, and experienced professional to your home or property. Your generator should be inspected every year or so, even if there are no signs of a problem. During a routine inspection, a generator technician will be able to assess the condition of your system. If there are any flaws or pieces that need repair, they will tell you.
For generators that need repair, Cranney is ready to help. Our generator experts will locate the problem and fix it completely. We assure you that repairs will be done in a timely manner, and the price will be a fixed, flat rate. For problems that range from small to severe, we can fix them.
For generators that are beyond repair, Cranney will help you pick out a replacement that will best suit the needs of you and your home. Depending on the size of your home or business, we will go over appropriate replacement models and you will be aware of all advantages or disadvantages. Our professionals will install a replacement model with ease. We know that these situations can be stressful and we want to be as minimally invasive as possible. Not only will your replacement be an improvement in function from your previous generator, but it will be more energy-efficient as well.
Installation of Transfer Switches for Generators
Have you ever wondered how your generator knows to turn on when the power goes out? A transfer switch is a switch in your generator that allows it to turn on by itself in the event of an outage. At Cranney, we can replace a faulty switch or install one to your existing model. These switches give you added protection in the event of a power outage or emergency situation.
At Cranney, we realize that a malfunctioning generator is a situation that needs to be addressed immediately. We offer emergency services, and flat, fixed prices. Our professionals are fully trained and experienced and will provide you with excellent customer service.
Frequently Asked Generator Questions
Are you considering a whole-house generator for your North Shore home? Check out these common questions about installing one of these in your home.
What is a whole-house generator?
A whole-house generator connects to the electrical system in your home at the circuit breaker box. If you lose power, it will switch on to give your home power until electricity is properly restored. This happens automatically, so you don't have to be home to switch on the generator.
What size generator do I need?
The size of generator you need depends on the size of your home and how many critical systems you need to run if the generator turns on. This calculation should be done by a qualified professional. Cranney Home Services can help you determine what size backup generator would be ideal for your North Shore home.
How can I maintain my whole-house generator?
To make sure your whole-house generator is ready to deliver service when needed, make sure you change the oil and filter regularly. Also, check the electrical connections and circuits to ensure they're working properly. Cranney's electricians can help with these maintenance tasks.
What are the benefits of a whole-house generator over a portable backup generator?
A whole-house generator switches on automatically when the power goes out, so you have protection right away. They also are larger, so they can run more systems in your home. They have less risk of fire or electrical injury because they are installed permanently in your home.
How long do whole-house generators last?
The lifespan of a whole-house generator will depend on how it is maintained and long it gets used, but they typically last 20 to 40 years with proper maintenance.
