Alabama residents are no stranger to power outages. Whether from snow or ice, tornadoes, residual effects of winds of inland moving hurricanes or the frequent severe thunderstorms, power outages are a part of life in our beautiful state. However, knowing they will occur again doesn’t mean dealing with them is any easier. A whole house generator is the solution for extended power outages. An automatic standby generator is an even greater convenience. Testing itself each week and automatically starting when the power fails, prevents you from the need to go outside in the rain, snow or storms. Mister Sparky electricians in Huntsville, AL can provide the generator installation and/or electrical repair you need.
In addition, a standby generator will keep your family comfortable, safe, and out of the dark when a power outage occurs.

Generator installation provides peace of mind knowing that a standby generator is always prepared to deliver the power you need throughout the year.
How an Automatic Generator Works
Whole house generators are available with manual start and automatic start. A standard manual whole–house generator can provide the electricity you need, but will only start manually. On the other hand, an automatic standby generator starts automatically when the power goes out. It offers the convenience of allowing you to remain indoors when a storm rages. The benefits extend beyond convenience by ensuring if you are away from home, you won’t return home to a refrigerator and/or a freezer filled with spoiled food. Finally, it tests itself on a weekly basis, ensuring reliable operation when you need it.
Whole house generators are available for diesel fuel, propane and natural gas. Natural gas it is the best option when available, because you won’t have to worry about it running out of fuel. With diesel fuel you’ll want to store extra when a bad weather event threatens, and with propane you will be required to call a gas company to refill the tank. However, natural gas is the cost-effective and environmentally friendly option of the three. Contact our electricians in Huntsville, AL for additional information or to schedule the installation of an automatic standby generator.
For an automatic standby generator to work properly, it must be professionally wired into the home’s electrical system. Once hardwired into the system, the generator can detect when the power has failed and will automatically start.

Why You Should Have a Generator Installed
Floods, accidents, snow and ice, thunderstorms, winds from inland hurricanes, tornadoes, and utility company system failures and other unforeseen events can lead to the loss of power. This is vastly inconvenient, especially when you need the heating system working, or when you have family members who rely on medical equipment to survive. Small, portable generators may offer limited power, but are unable to operate all the systems the average home requires. A professionally installed backup generator is the solution for the loss of power.
