What Is A Standby Generator?

Transcription of video:

Hi, I'm Ed Del Grande. I'm often asked, "What's one of the best investments I can make in my home?". Well, as far as I'm concerned, a standby generator is a great investment.

Standby generators can protect you whole family by keeping the power going no matter what the weather is doing. While we can all benefit by a standby generator, many of us should make it a top priority. For instance, if you have a home office and you need to keep that internet going. Or, if you have special need family members living at home, like the elderly or young children, you want to keep things like your heating systems and your air conditioning going. In my case, I have a well pump, so I want to keep my water on too. If you do a lot of traveling, you want to keep your security systems up and running. And finally, if you live in a storm prone area, or experience frequent power outages, a stanby generator should be a top priority.

Standby generators are installed outside the home, much like a standard air conditioning unit, and they can be used on older homes, or new contruction. They also run on propane or natural gas, so there's no manual refueling.

A key component to the system is a transfer switch. The transfer switch will automatically start up or generaotr, so you can manually power up your home in seconds, whether you are home or away. Once running, the generator will power anything in your home, without the need for extension cords. This includes things like the lights, your TV,, and most importantly, the homes critical systems.

Well, I've showed you the basics of a standby generator system. For more information, continue reviewing the Knowledge Center, or send an email to info@rtmarineinc.com
