Whole-House Generators Vs. Portable Generators

You’re most likely familiar with portable generators. These devices are great for keeping an RV powered during a camping trip, but that’s their limit. Portable generators don’t have what it takes to power your home in the event of an extended power outage. Their range is limited, they must be placed outside in order to properly vent their exhaust, and they require gasoline to run. This poses many inconveniences for use in the home.

A whole-house generator, on the other hand, is a system that you won’t have to put so much effort into. These house generators are permanently installed outside your home, connected directly to the electrical system. When the power goes out, they automatically switch into action. They’re built specifically to withstand extreme weather while fueling your home without fail through the duration of your outage.

Generator Installation Requires a Professional Electrician

During an extended loss of electricity in Tacoma, WA, you’ll need to make sure that your house generator is capable of keeping up with the demands. That requires a thorough assessment of your home’s electrical system long before the generator is installed. Miller Comfort Systems’s electricians have one of the highest compliance records in the local jurisdiction, meaning that we never skip the technical work. You can rest assured that your generator will be capable of keeping your home powered on when you need it most.

Part of what keeps your generator running through an outage is its direct connection to a fuel source. A natural gas generator has a virtually unlimited supply of fuel—it can provide as much fuel as you’re willing to pay for. On the other hand, you can also opt for propane installations, which comes from a giant storage tank installed on your property. Both have their pros and cons, so you’ll want to speak with one of our electricians to determine which fuel source is best for you.

Offering Whole-House Generator Installation and Repair in Tacoma

Even more important than installation is generator maintenance. The worst possible outcome is that you turn on your generator during a disaster, only to find that it’s not working. Generators are machines, and like any machine, it requires regular maintenance and inspection to ensure it’s working the way it should. In addition to installing your generator, we’re happy to do your repairs and maintenance on them.
