Backup Generators – Providing Power When You Need It Most
Anyone living on the Atlantic coast is no stranger to the agony of a power outage, especially during hurricane season. No matter what the season, having no access to air conditioning, running water and lights is enough to make anyone miserable. Aside from the general discomfort of not having power, a power outage can also be a major cause for concern for very young children and the elderly.
One of the great services Michael & Son offers is generator sales, installation and maintenance. With a standby generator, you’ll no longer be at the mercy of the power company. A backup generator installed by a trained Michael & Son technician can restore power back to your home in seconds after the outage.
How a Standby Generator Works
- The generator transfer switch monitors incoming voltage from the utility line.
- When the outage occurs, the generator is signaled to activate.
- The utility line to the generator is shut down and the new power line from the generator opens.
- Within seconds the generator provides power to critical circuits.
- When the utility line voltage has returned, power transfers back to the source.
Since each home is different in size and energy consumption, a Michael & Son technician can audit the energy use of your home and tailor a generator package just for you. While some generators will only target essential circuits, others will cover every circuit in the house. Whichever you choose, installing a backup generator will save you and your family from having to sweat out another summer power outage.
