Residential Standby Generators
Residential standby generators are the right solution for people looking to keep the lights on, even when the rest of the neighborhood is sitting in darkness. Your home is normally powered by the utility company through a network of transformers, substations, and miles of power lines. When any of these pieces are disturbed in any way, the homes powered by it will be shut down until it’s fully restored. Unfortunately, this time frame is fluid, ranging anywhere from a few seconds to days. With a residential standby generator, you guarantee yourself power throughout a blackout. When the main power switches off, the standby generator shifts on and continues providing power to your home as if nothing ever happened. A standby generator can provide roughly 3,000 hours of use or around 30+ years.
Residential Standby Generators For Hurricanes
Since they were first recorded, Florida has been hit by approximately 500 large storms. In fact, there have only been 18 hurricane seasons since 1851 that haven’t featured a named storm that directly hit Florida. As proud Floridians, we yawn and scoff at these storms, putting up our hurricane panels hours before a storm begins and casually waiting it out. It’s not until we lose power where we begin to realize the true strength of these storms. Hurricanes bring with them intense winds and heavy rains, both capable of causing significant damage. Even a category 1 hurricane brings a minimum wind speed of 74 miles per hour. These winds are strong enough to knock over power lines and cause severe flooding. Instead of attempting to power one appliance at a time with a portable generator, consider a residential standby generator. Hurricanes are notorious for causing major blackouts lasting several days, which you can certainly avoid with a standby generator installed by Rack Electric.
