Home Generators 101

When you lose power, you have no lights, no air conditioning or heating, you can’t open your refrigerator, and you can’t use your laundry or your dishwasher. Your life is majorly affected. And, this does not even include the possible safety implications that accompany a power outage.

A whole-home generator can save you from the inconvenience and the worry that typically follows a blackout. How does it do that? Well, a generator is your power supply’s second line of defense. It is powered by gasoline, propane, diesel, or your home’s existing natural gasses, which is then converted into electricity. Home backup generators can power your home for weeks!

Which Generator Should You Get?

Here at Bob’s Heating & Air Conditioning, we recommend the Honeywell Automatic Home Backup Generator to all of our clients. We highly suggest the Honeywell brand and system, as it detects when power is lost and responds instantly, turning on automatically.

You won’t have to start it, you won’t have to fill it with gas (it runs on your home’s existing natural gasses), and you don’t need to plug it in. This is the most reliable whole-home generator on the market.

Depending on your home power usage, we will be able to fit the right Honeywell Home Generator to meet your power needs during an outage. We have generators that can cover up to 22,000 watts. There’s no shortage of power here!

How Does The Honeywell Home Line Of Generators Work?

  1. Once a power outage is detected, your Honeywell Home Generator will prepare to restore your home’s power in a matter of seconds.

  2. Your generator will automatically turn on. The automatic transfer switch will send the power from your generator to your home, and it will continue to provide power to your home until it senses that your main power source is restored.

  3. Once it detects that your primary power supply is back up and running, it will automatically switch back to its standby mode.
