The installation of a whole house generator ensures your home receives the electricity it requires. A whole house generator is a permanent installation connected to the home’s electrical panel. The generator is powered by an external fuel supply, typically natural gas, liquid propane, or diesel. Natural gas is the preferred choice, as it will provide fuel without the worry of running out.
The generator is available in a variety of sizes and capacity, capable of operating the bare essentials, or systems that will power an entire home. Determining the system required for your home’s electrical needs requires the advanced knowledge and expertise of a Mister Sparky licensed electrician in Huntsville, AL.
Whole House Surge Protection
Whole-house surge protection provides protection for sensitive electronics, appliances, and the electrical system from powerful power surges. Almost everyone has surge protection power strips in their home for TVs and computers. However, strips shouldn’t be considered a primary protective device, but rather are a last line of defense in a surge protection system. In addition, it’s essential to realize surge protection strips provide no protection at all for the electrical system, but only to the electronics plugged into it. Only whole house surge protection can provide protection for the entire electrical system, and the appliances, electronics and other devices connected into it.
There are three types of surge protection used in a whole-house surge protection network. They include:
- A Type one device is installed at the power meter, and has the capability of discharging most of the high current surges of lightning.
- A Type two device is installed in the electrical service panel, and protects against residual lightning and also surges originating inside the home.
- Type three devices are surge protector strips, and provide point-of-use protection for electronics and appliances. A strip is the third stage of the network, and is the last line of defense.
Only a licensed electrician is qualified to install types one and two. Contact a Mister Sparky electrician in Huntsville, AL for professional installation.
