Home » Electrical » Automatic Standby Generators

Electricity is obviously a very popular, and very necessary, resource. Its use is so ingrained in our daily lives that it is easy to overlook just how vital electricity truly is. Unless, of course, the power should happen to go out. Then it becomes very clear, very quickly, just how important it is to have dependable electricity in one's home.

In Florida, the heat of summer often comes with high winds, torrential storms, and even hurricanes. That means that a power outage is a very likely occurrence in our neighborhoods. If you want to keep your home up and running when the power goes out, we cannot recommend the use of an automatic standby generator in Jacksonville, FL strongly enough. Schedule your generator services with the pros at AA Service and Repair-North Florida AC.

How Does an Automatic Standby Generator Work?

An automatic standby generator is a much different beast than a portable generator that you may use when camping or tailgating. An automatic standby generator, for starters, is a type of whole–house generator. That means that it can power your entire home, from your AC to your lighting system, at once. Provided, of course, that it is appropriately sized and professionally installed.

You won’t be plugging anything into this type of generator directly. Instead, you’ll need to have it wired directly into your electrical system at the service panel. For this reason alone, an automatic standby generator must be professionally installed and serviced. When the generator senses that the power has gone out, it will automatically start up, keeping everything going until the power from the grid is restored.

We Install and Replace Automatic Standby Generators

There are a few reasons as to why any whole–house generator must be professionally installed. Safety is the main concern, of course, as these systems are hardwired into your electrical system. So too is the sizing of the system, though. You need to know that your system will generate enough power, measured in kW (kilowatts) to handle your electrical needs. With diesel, natural gas, and LP models to choose from, you also need to know that you are using the ideal fuel for your situation.

If and when your existing automatic standby generator gives out on you, remember that the professionals on our staff are here to help. If you have any issues with this generator, we’ll be happy to help you find a replacement that will operate more satisfactorily. Not only that, but you can count on the replacement of your generator to be completed flawlessly.

Call for Automatic Standby Generator Repair and Maintenance

It would be great to know for certain that your automatic standby generator would never falter. Unfortunately, this just is not the case with any mechanical system. At some point, you are going to need to schedule automatic standby generator repairs in Jacksonville, FL. When you do, you don’t want it to be when you need that system the most.

That is why routine automatic standby generator maintenance is so important. Yes, your system will run self–diagnostics and will have indicators that can alert you to issues. Even so, allowing a professional electrician, such as those on our staff, to evaluate and tune up your system regularly is completely necessary. With our staff on your side, you can know for certain that your automatic standby generator has got you covered.
