In this storm and hurricane prone region, you don’t want to be caught off guard when the power goes out. Prolonged power outages are a normal occurrence in Hampton Roads due to hurricanes, lightning storms, ice storms, utility demand problems, transformer damage and more.
If you have a home-based business or home office, downtime due to a power outage can cost you money. And if you have in-home medical equipment, including oxygen machines, a power outage can be a dangerous event. Power outages can also be costly due to loss of food and perishables.
Smith & Keene can install a home standby generator with an automatic transfer switch that will ensure your home has electricity, no matter the conditions outside. When your power goes out, the generator’s automatic transfer switch will turn on, starting your generator. When the power is restored, the generator will then turn off automatically. These new, efficient systems don’t require the hassle of manually hooking up the generator in the dark or during a storm, so that you can stay comfortable and safe year-round.
A portable generator with an electric starter is another option for keeping your lights on in a storm. While these generators are designed for limited power usage during short-term intervals, they can help to keep your family more comfortable when the power goes out.
No matter your generator preference, the Smith & Keene team can help you in determining and installing the right generator for your home.
