Back-Up Generators and Emergency Power
Updated: May 25
A back-up generator was once a “nice to have” piece of equipment in case of a power outage. More and more they are becoming a necessity for home owners all over the U.S.. Heating in the winter, cooling in the summer, keeping your refrigerated or frozen food supplies from going bad, operating life-sustaining medical equipment, and maintaining the ability to charge new electric vehicles are part of today’s modern home owner requirements. According to government and utility providers’ data, in the last 10 years, weather-related power emergencies have risen 69 percent (Consumer Reports Generator Buying Guide, July 20, 2021).
While an important tool to have around, it is unwise for a novice to try to install a back-up generator on their property. As with any major home renovation project, most city building governances require permits, for safety reasons above all. Thus it is advisable to hire a licensed electrician to install generators in the safest and best accessible space that meets all local building code requirements.
