When The Power Goes Down, A Standby Generator Keeps You Up And Running

When the power goes out, you’re at the mercy of nature. Here in Arkansas, a severe storm or tornado can leave thousands without power for days or weeks. That’s why it’s wise to have a standby generator on hands for such events.

Aspects of A Standby Generator

Standby generators are more popular than they have ever been. That popularity has caused a drop in price, so that they’re more affordable than ever. They are safer, more powerful and easier to operate than the old portable style. Here’s how a standby generator operates:

  • Transfer switch: The generator is housed outside on a concrete pad and wired into your home. When a transfer switch senses normal power is off, it signals the unit to start up and begin producing power — in seconds. All this is automatic, and no one needs to even be in the home.
  • Fuel: Standby generators are able to operate on diesel, propane or natural gas. As long as they have a supply of fuel, they continue to run.
  • Size: The larger the generator, the more of the home services it is able to run. Determining what needs to run when power goes out is the decision of the homeowner. Running the whole house requires a larger, more expensive unit. Running heating and air, refrigerator and freezer and a few other outlets calls for a smaller and less expensive investment. Either way, the unit functions the same, automatically starting up and shutting off once power is restored.

For information on the outstanding benefits of these generators, contact the experts at Paschal Heat, Air & Geothermal. We’ve been serving the northwest Arkansas area for more than 40 years — we’re ready to answer any home comfort question you may have.
