Whole House Generator
There was a time, not so long ago, that if you lost power for any length of time, it was something you probably viewed more as a nuisance than a calamity.
That was then
Today, our homes require much more power to run our appliances, home comfort systems, computers, home entertainment equipment and more. It could prove very costly to lose power for an extended period of time. And that doesn’t even factor in the obvious health risks for family members who can’t properly be treated at home without electrical power.
That’s why Cheetah Electric offers you whole-house generators. A Moscow Whole House Generator offers numerous advantages over portable generators:
- The American Red Cross recommends permanently installed standby generators vs. portable generators for added safety.
With an automatic standby generator properly installed outside, your home is protected from deadly carbon monoxide poisoning.
- It runs on your home’s natural gas or LP fuel supply for a steady supply of power.
- They start automatically within seconds of a power outage, and eliminate the need to haul a portable generator outside or run extension cords throughout your home.
One of the key features of a whole house generator is the automatic transfer switch, which is designed to turn the unit on as soon as it detects that there has been an electrical power failure. Even if the voltage suddenly drops due to a fluctuation, the automatic transfer switch disconnects the house from the grid and the whole house generator takes over the job of providing your home with continuous power at the proper voltage.
A whole-house generator automatically turns itself off, too. That means there’s no need for you to be running outside to turn the unit on or off manually. In the meantime, you’ll enjoy the benefits of uninterrupted power, 24/7, as if the power outage never occurred.
While whole-house generators vary in size, they are roughly the same size as an AC condensing unit, which means they won’t take away from the aesthetic appeal of your home.
