How To Choose The Best Home Generators In Plano

Home Generators Plano TX - Adis Electric LLC

Whether your power goes out due to a lightning storm, tornado weather, or a blackout from the service provider, the situation could put you and your family at risk. It at least makes the time very uncomfortable.

A generator is an important backup power source for times when you have no way to keep the lights on, the refrigerator running, or a security system functioning.

At minimum, you'll want the lights on and the ability to plug in some appliances. This is why so many in Plano are choosing a whole-house generator instead of using a portable generator.

Another advantage of a whole house generator is the sound. Portable generators can be loud and extremely annoying, especially when they need to run for hours. A whole house generator is made to be quieter, with some extremely quiet.

Plus, portable generators have to be continually fed fuel by hand whereas a whole house generator is fueled by the natural gas service provider, a large tank that holds diesel or propane, or solar power. Let the Expert Plano Electricians at Adis Electric give you some tips.


Generator Sizes

Home generators come in many sizes to support various systems in your home. The smaller standby generators installed into your electrical system will operate plugged in appliances such as the refrigerator, stove, lamps, etc.

A 10,000 watt generator will run most of these types of appliances in a 1500 square foot home. A 30,000 watt generator will also run an HVAC system, garage door opener, and other important systems.


Generator Features

Generators come with different features as well. Some standby generators provide seamless, automatic operation as the main electrical power source goes out or comes back on. Portables need to be fueled by hand. Still others can tie into all the smart systems of your home. And others run very quietly.

 

Whole House Solar Powered Generators

A solar powered generator uses solar energy to operate the electrical system in the home when the main power goes out. They can be installed as an off-grid system for the main power source of the home or as a grid-tie system standby generator.

 

Generators Integrated Into Gas Fueled HVAC Systems


A gas furnace will not operate if the power goes out. A gas fueled furnace requires a small amount of electricity to turn the furnace on. This means no power = no heat.

A generator can be installed to operate either an electric HVAC system or gas fueled furnace so the home stays comfortable during a blackout or brownout.

Generators can be installed into the gas system of the home so they are powered by natural gas. They can run on natural gas from the service provider, propane, or diesel.
