Confidence & Comfort During a Power Outage
Few scenarios for a family are met with as much universal frustration as waiting out a power outage in the dark. A power outage interrupts a family’s daily routine and forces life to be put on pause until the power returns.
Standby generator systems prevent that. Period. Standby generator systems are designed to keep lights and home appliances powered in the event of a power outage – automatically. Best of all, they provide peace of mind that your family won’t have to endure another headache-inducing power outage in the dark.
There’s a lot to like about owning a standby generator system. It provides security and confidence that home life will continue uninterrupted, no matter the weather conditions outside.
Lower Your Homeowners Insurance Rate
Keeping your lights and home appliances on during a power outage is the major benefit of owning a standby generator system. But owning a standby can lead to some serious savings for homeowners, too.
Home standby generators keep a home humming. Insurers know that when your house’s lights and security system are on, it’s less likely that you’ll be making a home theft claim. That’s why many insurance agencies view standby generators as a theft prevention investment, which can reduce your homeowners insurance rate.
Prevent Storm Damage & Power Outage Costs
Standby generators prevent unexpected repair or losses that occur when a home sits without power. National averages1 for such power outage costs include:
- $150 per night for a hotel stay.
- $200 in spoiled food losses.
- Even more painful, a home with an unpowered sump pump can incur $20,000 in basement water damages.
Increase Your Home Value
Property values increase for homes with a standby generator system. A recent study by Remodeling Magazine showed standby generators increase home resale values by 52.7 percent of the cost of the generator system.
Prevent power outage-related home repair costs and realize additional savings. With systems and home generator installation costing around $5,000 total, it’s easy to see how quickly standby generators can become a valued investment – especially after customer-friendly generator financing options are considered.
Choose Between Natural Gas & Liquid Propane Generators
A home standby generator system consists of two products: a standby generator unit and an automatic transfer switch. The two work in concert with your home to ensure when power is lost, it’s only for a matter of seconds before backup power kicks in.
A standby generator system and automatic transfer switch are professionally installed to your home’s existing wiring. Constantly at the ready, the system senses when utility power stops flowing to your home for any reason, thus sensing a power outage. Within seconds, the automatic transfer switch seamlessly transfers your home’s selected electrical circuits and appliances to backup power. Once the generator system senses utility power is back online, your home is automatically transferred back to utility power and the standby generator is shut down until it’s needed the next time.
Standby generator systems operate on either natural gas or liquid propane vapor. Both natural gas and propane generators provide a seamless transition from utility to backup power. If your home already utilizes one fuel or the other, it makes sense to use what’s already available.
Simple Generator Maintenance
Even though an automatic standby generator system seamlessly provides backup power to your home within seconds of sensing a power outage, it is still important to remember that it’s a major piece of outdoor power equipment with an engine. Routine generator maintenance is required to make sure it will perform as expected when you need it most.
Lean on Your Dealer
Not only is your standby generator installed professionally by then team at Feldmann Power, we will also work with you moving forward. From the simple to the more serious, Feldmann Power will be able to provide any maintenance needs your system may encounter while under warranty and throughout the lifespan of the unit. Be sure to ask your dealer about your standby generator maintenance agreement.
Weekly Self Cycle
Every week, your standby generator system will run a test cycle for about 20 minutes. Your home won’t be transferred to backup power during the test, but it’s a critical cycle to self-diagnose any generator issues that may prevent the system from providing backup power when it counts. This cycle will happen automatically at the same time every week once you set the day and time.
Monitor Your Generator
Keeping your pulse on the status of your generator system ensures it is ready to power your home’s appliances when it’s called upon. Wireless generator monitoring systems like Infohub™ are compatible with your computer, tablet or smartphone and can send you and your dealer alerts about any generator maintenance needs and overall performance.
Much like other products in your garage, simple maintenance is required from time to time to keep your backup generator system humming. Generator maintenance kits can be purchased and include an air filter, spark plug, oil filter, funnel, and oil for routine repairs. For cold climates where the temperature drops below 30° F, a cold weather kit includes a battery warmer and two oil heaters to keep your generator warm and ready to start up when the temperature outside drops.
