The Benefits of a Whole-Home Generator

Excel Electric has experience working on whole-home generators throughout Eugene, OR. Whole-home generators are a versatile piece of equipment that prevents your home from losing power. The following covers the top benefits of having a whole-home generator.

Avoid Losing Your Food Due to a Power Outage

Whole-home generators can supply up to 20,000 watts of power, which is enough for an entire house. Other generators only give you enough power for a few appliances.

Using a whole-home system means you won’t lose anything if there’s an outage. It’ll supply enough electricity to keep everything on until the power returns.

We can help you figure out how large your system needs to be for a house the size of yours. Each home has different power demands, so they need different equipment.

Stay Connected With a Continuous Power Supply

Modern generators can detect when there is an interruption to your power supply. Then, they’ll kick on and begin generating electricity. You won’t even notice that the power has gone out.

We actually tie them into your home’s existing electrical panel, assuming it’s compatible. That’s how they’re able to detect if there’s been a disruption to the power.

Boost Your Property Value

There’s always the consideration of cost when you’re about to embark on a new home project. Spending a ton of money on something like this wouldn’t make sense unless you’re going to use it.

Thankfully, you can get a lot of use out of a generator if you plan on living in the same home for a while. Even small power interruptions won’t disrupt your daily activities if you have one.

Try and sell a home with one installed. It’s not hard to see the way people react when you tell them about the home’s generator. They’ll be much more likely to offer you more than the asking price if they make one.

Adding a generator to your property usually returns most of what you’ve invested. The exact return will depend on market factors specific to your area. Take a look at comparable homes that have sold nearby to see if any of them had generators. That should give you a good idea as to how much one of them would add to yours.

Never Worry About What’s Going to Happen During a Storm

Nothing is more intimidating than feeling like you’re stuck in a storm. The only way to make it more overwhelming would be to cut the power to your house. Of course, if you have a generator, that won’t be a problem.

Turbulent weather and storms won’t force you to hide in the dark once you’ve installed a generator. It’ll make sure your house always has the lights on.
