Do Not Get Left in the Dark

Living in the beautiful, vibrant community of the Charlotte Area can be fun, exciting, and fulfilling.  However, an unexpectedly heavy storm, strong winds, or a snowstorm can quickly create a sudden power outage. Don’t let the weather leave you in the dark, let’s talk generators.

Having a reliable, efficient, and safe backup generator can be immensely beneficial (and sometimes crucial). Gone are the days when you would have to wait for the power lines to be repaired. Having your own power on standby can be the smartest and most efficient approach, especially with the wide range of options available today.

The Many Reasons for Having a Generator in Your Home

There are many reasons why a generator installation in your residence can be a great solution that mitigates all types of power outage problems. 

Backup Generators Automatically Turn On in the Event of an Outage

A backup generator is highly reliable and efficient. It is designed such that it can provide power to your entire home in a matter of seconds in the event of an outage. If there is a power shutdown, a transfer switch automatically disconnects the home power system and starts the generator. 

When the power is restored, the generator shuts down, and utility power is spontaneously restored to the home system. All of this is effortless, requiring no manual intervention on your part. Here’s a video from Generac for more understanding on how it works

Never Shut Down Your Home Business and Risk Losing Revenue 

Home businesses often rely heavily on power every day, and being in the dark can cause a huge dent in your income. Losing power can pose a significant safety risk to your family and any team that might be working with you. 

Ensure that your home office has a dependable, steady backup system that can automatically provide you with the reliable supply of electricity that you need to keep working through any weather conditions. 

Keep Your Indoor Temperature Regulated During Extreme Weather 

When the heater stops working in the middle of winter or the air conditioner is not cooling your home in the scorching summer heat, it can be an incredibly stressful situation and even a health hazard. Plan ahead and avoid getting into this situation the next time the unexpected happens. 

Have the Electricity to Keeping Your Loved Ones Safe and Sound

With a foolproof backup generator, you can avoid the discomfort and interruptions that typically happen with a power failure. Never again have a storm or bad weather affect the quality of your life. Keep your family safe, especially elderly parents and young children. 

Have Your Home Security System On at all Times

CCTV cameras and home alarms require electricity to run. A sudden outage can compromise your security system. With a backup generator, your alarm system and cameras will be up and running, thus being able to protect your property from burglary or vandalism during an outage.

Avoid Wasting Tons of Food

One of the most common problems with a power outage is the loss of hundreds of dollars worth of food. With a generator, you can rest assured that all that food won’t go to waste. If you have a home business that relies on refrigerated or frozen inventory, you can ensure that you won’t end up losing valuable products when the power fails. 

Save Space with Compact Models 

Many customers express concerns over how much space a generator installation can take up. Our technicians will be able to install the unit in a small unused and discreet space of your choice on your property. We are able to provide solutions for every type of property, regardless of the size or location.

No Matter Your Requirements, We Can Help You

Generators can be very versatile. They are not just useful during emergency power outages. A generator installation can also be a reliable secondary source of power for all types of uncertain electricity conditions, including brownouts and scheduled outages. 

Moreover, they are also a critical source of power in remote locations where a steady conventional power supply is unavailable. They can be used to power tools and appliances for construction projects and during other development when mains power might not be available. 

Customizable Generator Solutions to Give You Peace of Mind 

At GB Electrical Services, we offer services for both portable and backup generator installation. 

Portable Generators

Portable Generators are small, light, and easy to take along with you everywhere. They can be moved easily and manually started. They are ideal for use during short outages, camping, and to power appliances or tools. However, without the proper switches and wiring installed, they should not be used to power your whole home.

Backup Generators

Backup Generators can be great to use during extended power outages. They provide a reliable source of electricity that you can depend on. They are about as big as an air conditioner, and our technicians can install them in a relatively small space in your yard or any other desired location.

Don’t Regret Your Inaction the Next Time Power Goes Out

We have many customers call us for generator installation right after the power goes down. Why wait? During an emergency, the demand for generators skyrockets, and the supply goes down drastically. 

Our technicians try their best to serve each and every customer as soon as possible, but the wait is always longer during critical times. We recommend planning in advance so that you have the best possible solution in place before an emergency strikes.

Professional Generator Installation and Maintenance

Highly skilled electricians will be able to answer all of your questions, analyze your individual requirements and devise the most efficient and cost-effective solution for your home. 

Installing a generator can be a complex process and is definitely not a do-it-yourself operation. We will determine the most suitable generator for you based on:

  • The size of your property
  • Your individual household needs
  • Number of appliances you use
  • Daily energy consumption

Generators come in a variety of sizes and price ranges. Our team will work with you to decide the perfect one based on your budget and individual requirements. Our customized recommendations are guaranteed to satisfy your needs.

Maintaining Your Generator Is Crucial

Generators are very simple to run and operate. In fact, they are some of the most low-maintenance solutions to any power outage. However, as with any machine, they will need to be maintained periodically in order to keep them in great working condition. 

Our experienced and qualified electricians provide regular maintenance and inspection services to your generator units.

Just like a car your generator needs a tune up at least once a year!

A well-maintained generator can last for up to 30 years or more. Many units have automatic weekly self-testing systems in place to ensure that they are prepared to run in the event of a power failure. We highly recommend that you schedule maintenance every six months to check for any potential issues.

Our hassle-free generator maintenance service will protect your unit from damage and extend its life, thus giving you better value for your money. If you are having problems with your generator, our technicians also specialize in repair services. We will try our best to accommodate you at the earliest possible time.
