Are You Ready For The Next Hurricane Season?
When it comes to being ready, starting sooner than later is always better. This is particularly true when it comes to being ready to face hurricane season. Each hurricane season sparks a flurry of questions. How many storms will there be this year? How strong will they be? Will they make landfall where I live? Will I lose power to my home or my business again?
While some answers stay unknown, there is one certain answer: when a hurricane strikes South Florida, everyone loses power. As long-time South Florida residents, the experts at Rack Electric know all too well that it doesn’t take much effort for utility power to cut out. A broken tree branch, transformers damaged by debris, or downed power lines felled by a coconut palm is all it requires.
There is another certain answer about power during hurricane season: you won’t have to worry about losing it when you have an automatic residential standby generator, a commercial standby generator, or an industrial standby generator.
Residential Standby Generator, Commercial Standby Generator, and Industrial Standby Generator Installation
No matter the size of your house or your business, Rack Electric has a high-quality, dependable standby backup generator to meet your power needs. Our state-certified, licensed electricians are experts with installing, maintaining and repairing standby generators. Rack Electric has backup generators able to power your entire residence or the most critical electrical circuits in your company.
The sooner you start preparing for hurricane season, the sooner you’ll be ready for June 1st — when the season begins. While the team at Rack Electric provides the experience and the training that makes selecting and installing a residential standby generator or a commercial standby generator efficient, there are some initial hurdles you’ll need to overcome. First and foremost, every city, town, local municipality, and county has laws and regulations overseeing construction.
Depending on where you live in South Florida — whether it’s in Boca Raton, Kendall, Marco Island, or Jupiter — you may be unable to even get a permit to install your new residential generator. Many areas require that a professional, licensed installer obtain the permits needed. Having a professional electrical contactor like Rack Electric makes this process easier.
Laws, Regulations, and Permits
For the permits, it’s pretty much guaranteed that you’ll need to obtain an electrical permit to install a residential standby generator. In some areas, a plumbing permit may additionally be required. A construction permit is another possible necessity as your new backup generator needs to sit on a concrete pad. Considering the zoning laws and electrical, plumbing and construction laws for where you live might not be the end of it, however. If your neighborhood is managed by a homeowners association (HOA), there are more rules you’ll need to navigate.
If you’re looking for a residential standby generator, it’s better to get started on the process as soon as possible. Rack Electric handles each phase of the project, from helping you select the right backup generator from our inventory to obtaining all the necessary permits for quick, expert installation.
