The Differences Between Standby & Portable Generators

Although there are many specific distinctions between individual brands, models, and makes of generators, the first step you will need to undertake during the installation process is choosing whether a standby generator or a portable generator would be better for supplying power after an outage. A standby generator is highly beneficial because it is permanently installed in a single, convenient location, and because it is automatic, it will start instantaneously when power is interrupted. 

Portable generators, on the other hand, actually need to be started manually directly after a blackout has taken place. Portable generators are quite convenient, but cannot supply as much power, particularly large appliances. Instead, select devices will be protected by being plugged into an extension cord. Since there are pros and cons for each system, speaking to a knowledgeable technician will help you make a fully informed decision.

What Is Involved in a Whole Home Generator Hookup

A whole-home generator is a great method of keeping all the appliances in your house safe during a blackout. Whenever they begin to set up your whole house generator, a team of professionals will carefully undertake a step-by-step process to ensure that everything is safely installed.

This hookup will involve:

  • A team of qualified electricians will begin setting up a special sub-panel with its own transfer switch, directly by the main panel of your home.
  • After redirecting the required circuit to this sub-panel, technicians will ensure the generator is securely set up on a flat, sturdy base. 
  • All electrical components will be carefully connected, from the generator to the house and from the transfer switch to the generator.
  • Finally, the generator will be properly attached to its fuel source. 

Because this installation process involves a lot of hazardous parts, it is important that only experienced electricians are involved, like our team members at Cravens Electric.
