Top 4 Benefits of a Whole Home Generator

  • < Back to Blog

    Homeowners throughout Central Texas with whole-home generators know the feeling of relief when a power outage occurs, and their lights and appliances stay on. Once considered a luxury, electricity is now the source behind most of our daily activities. Something so valuable needs a backup plan for those unexpected weather conditions and major power outages.  

    Maintaining the AC during the hot summer months isn’t the only advantage of having a backup power generator. It can also save you from throwing out spoiled food from your refrigerator/freezer and keep your family safe and comfortable when powerful storms knock out your electricity.

    If your home relies on electricity to function effectively, a whole-home generator is a valuable asset to your home. Here are the top four benefits of a whole-home generator.

    What are the Benefits of a Whole Home Generator?

    1. Protection Against Power Surges

    In an unprecedented event like a hurricane, ice storm, or severe thunderstorm, electricity is usually the first thing to go. A whole-home generator protects your home against blackouts and power surges that would otherwise leave you powerless and in the dark – often for days at a time.

    2. Reliable

    Whole-home generators turn on within seconds of your power going out – and they can work for hours without stopping! With an adequate fuel supply, you’ll never have to worry about being without electricity again. They are the safest and most hassle-free way to keep all your electrical essentials running during a power outage. A whole-home generator is wise investment if you live in an area where hurricanes and thunderstorms are common.

    3.  Convenient

    These systems are also automatic and extremely convenient. Our experienced technicians can hardwire your new generator into your existing electrical system. When it activates, it cuts off the electrical system from the grid and takes over until it’s not needed anymore. Your whole-home generator can be customized to automatically turn on the appliances you need the most when your home loses power – such as your HVAC system and refrigerator.

    Since it’s automatic, you don’t need to go outside during a terrible storm or at night and struggle to get the generator going. When you’re not at home during a power outage – your house is still protected.

    Generators either run on natural gas or liquid propane. If your home has a natural gas line, your generator has an unlimited supply of fuel flowing to it – no need to worry that it will run out of fuel, no matter how long the power is out. For homes without natural gas, a propane generator is a good option. Propane has a long shelf life and an ample supply can be housed in compressed tanks.

    4. Peace of Mind

    The most valuable benefit of whole-home generators is the peace and comfort you’ll experience knowing that your home is protected whenever you lose power. They provide peace of mind knowing that you’ll be able to carry on with your life as usual during a power outage – no matter how long it may last.

    Generator Installation Process

    Malek’s installation process is simple and efficient. Before the installation process begins, though, we’ll help you decide what kind of generator will best meet your needs. Some of the factors to consider include:

    Fuel Source

    It’s vital to know what fuel source you want when choosing the right backup generator. Depending on your personal preference and what your home has access to, your generator can be powered by natural gas, propane, or diesel.

    Price

    You also need to consider your budget and how much you can afford to invest in a generator. The prices range widely depending on the fuel source and specific unit. Knowing your budget will help you make the best decision for your home.

    Wattage

    Before installation, we’ll also need to know what size unit you need to meet your home’s electricity requirements. A 22kW unit may be the best option for you if you’re looking for a simple and effective system that’s inexpensive. If you’re looking to back up your entire home, a 48kW generator is a more common option for Central Texas homes. Because it can run the entire home instead of just a few appliances, you’ll stay comfortable and have everything you need!
