For those who live in Florida, you simply must have a built in backup home generator. For those who haven’t considered having a backup generator installed, Burley Electrical Services would like to share the many benefits of having your own built in home backup generator.
What is the Purpose of a Backup Generator?
Powered by propane or natural gas, a generator is a complex machine that can help provide enough power to your home during a power outage. A generator can provide power to a home for a few days when a storm rolls in, causing blackouts. There are a number of different types of generator systems you can invest in. A built-in generator is directly connected to your home, providing power as soon as a power outage occurs. They run on another fuel source such as propane or a natural gas.

A built in backup generator will require the aid of an electrician to install the generator. You can also invest in a portable generator, but these systems are usually smaller and have limited use. Meaning, they have outlets that you can run extension cords from and power up the essential system of the home. The number of outlets are limited which means the size of the generator you invest in will determine how many electrical machines can be powered. A built in system often provides power to the whole house. However, the more power you use, the faster the generator will run out of fuel.
