A generator is an emergency power source. It is a reserve electrical system that runs on natural gas, liquid propane, or—less frequently—diesel in the case of a power outage. Generators serve as a safeguard in case of emergency, so taking care of your generator installation early on is advisable. At Ferree Electric, we offer efficient installation services for properties in and around Eden, UT.
Having a backup generator improves the resale value of a home. More importantly, it provides a sense of safety, knowing that you always have another source of power for your property. When you have a generator, you can be assured that your basic needs—refrigerator, furnace, water heater, etc.—will still receive power in the case of an outage.
Installing a Generator
When you recruit our Ferree Electric team for your generator installation, the first thing we will do is come and assess your property to find the right place to put it. The perfect place is outside near the home in an area that will not flood and with enough room to access and service it as necessary. We provide a precast concrete pad to protect it from the elements and keep it stable.
The kind of generator you settle on for your property will depend on the fuel source you prefer (natural gas or liquid propane), and the size will be determined by the size and energy demand of your home. We will take all of these into consideration during the preparation before installation. We will also secure all the necessary city permits to keep your generator and property in compliance with the relevant building codes.
With our wealth of experience, our team can install your new backup generator as fits your schedule. We will arrange a time with you and stick to it, completing the installation efficiently and letting you get back to your day. We know you’re busy, so let our team manage the task according to our professional codes so you can enjoy your generator worry-free.
Backup vs. Portable Generators
Portable generators are a less permanent solution if generator installation looms a bit large, but a permanent backup generator is an investment that offers many perks that the temporary alternative cannot.
Backup generators are safer than portable generators for a number of reasons. They have no extension cords that run through your home, which lowers the risk of electrical shock or fire. Using a permanent generator can protect the residents of a home from carbon monoxide poisoning, which is a greater threat from portable generators especially in poorly ventilated rooms. A generator is designed to sit outside of the home, very well ventilated.
A portable generator must be set up each time a power outage occurs, which often means fumbling around in the dark and cold. Permanent units start within seconds after a loss of power, whether you are at home or not. The automated systems provide 24/7 protection and shut off again when power returns.
All things—including generator installation—considered, backup generators are generally less expensive than their temporary counterparts and are, as a rule, much quieter than gasoline-powered units. They also require less monitoring.
