Home standby generators are more affordable than ever. Modern models are smart, automatic, durable and accessible home solutions to the problem of power outages. Dempsey Electric Socal Generators can guide you through the process of choosing the right backup solution for your power needs.
Whole House Or Just Essential Circuits?
Choose the size generator that fits your needs. Most homes can be backed up completely with a more powerful generator. More powerful does not mean significantly larger. Higher kW generators have a very similar footprint to lower kW models. If you only need some essential “emergency” circuits backed up, such as lights and refrigerator, they can be moved to a sub-panel and backed up by a smaller generator. Every installation is different and we’ll help you identify your needs and provide the right solution.
Some of the benefits of having a reliable source of backup power at home are:
• Keep the lights on!
• Refrigerators and freezers stay cold
• Power home security systems
• Power electric garage doors and gates
• Keep the home office operating
• Appliances and even a single A/C
• Charge cell phones and other devices
• Watch TV
• Run electrical appliances
• Use medical equipment
• Power your car charger
• Backup your solar or backup battery array!
Dempsey Electric Socal Generators installs smart products that sense when the power goes out and start themselves automatically, restoring electrical power through the existing electrical system in seconds. Generators are smart enough to wait out a momentary brownout preventing unnecessary starts and stops. Installations with load sensing capability can be used to protect from overloading a generator by prioritizing some loads over others. It’s designed to be a hands-free process.
For example, power goes out while the A/C is running, along with the rest of the house. When the generator starts, it will sense that the house plus the A/C would lead to overload. The generator automatically locks out the A/C circuit and prioritizes the home electrical circuits for lights, outlets, refrigerators, etc. This smart, efficient feature opens up options for smaller generators that can power larger loads. Measures to protect your investment are implemented into each generator mechanically and electronically.
Versatile Fuel Options
Fuel options are available for varying applications. Most residential units run on natural gas or propane, depending on service availability. Natural gas is the most efficient and typical fuel source for residences. Propane is available for areas where natural gas is not accessible.
Generators can be connected to your WiFi to provide remote monitoring. This monthly fee service will allow monitoring of the generators performance and health. It can also provide scheduled service reminders to keep the generator in top shape and extend it’s life cycle.
Load management options are available for more controlled and efficient generator backup, such as when a smaller generator provides a partial backup.
Most generators installed by Dempsey Electric Socal Generators come with a five year limited warranty for parts and labor from the factory. Our installations carry a five year limited warranty on the installation work. Service and maintenance programs are available for the many generators that have outlived their warranty period and are still running today. Call for details.
We offer scheduled maintenance service programs to keep your generator running reliably. Scheduled maintenance is critically important to maximize the life of your generator and be sure it starts when needed.
Along with scheduled maintenance, proper installation is key to maximizing a generator’s performance and lifespan. There are many factors to take into account: Size, location, code considerations, access to fuel supply, maximum load size, load management, whole house backup or partial backup, and others. Dempsey Electric Socal Generators will advise and assist through the process of choosing the right solution for you. We have experience with installation details, best practices and code compliance issues.
Drawing on years of electrical experience, a manufacturer trained master electrician oversees every installation, making sure each install is efficient and up to quality and durability expectations.
