Weatherford Generator Installation & Repair
Backup generators are an invaluable resource to have when the power goes out. When severe weather knocks down transmission lines, grid failures bring down service to wide areas or even an unexpected surge causes immense damage to electrical equipment, a backup generator can keep you supplied with power that keeps your life on track.
With how dependent we are on electricity in our day-to-day lives, losing access to electrical power can be more than just an inconvenience—it can be disastrous. At Hobson AC, we make it our goal to ensure you never lose access to power through a high-quality backup generator setup. From configuring your home to run on generator power to outfitting you with a full-fledged emergency system, count on our Weatherford electricians to get the job done!
Which Generator Is Right For Your Home?
Generators come in a wide variety of styles, sizes and functions. Some are small, convenient and can be easily moved from place to place. Others are significantly larger, heavier and impractical to move around. Different generators also produce different amounts of power, burn various amounts of fuel and have differing price tags. At Hobson AC, we make it easy to sort through the confusion and make the best decision for your emergency power services.
Our Weatherford generator installation team will work with you to help you understand what size of generator is best suited for the electrical needs of your home. We'll even teach you how to properly fire up and configure your generator so your emergency power will be as safe as possible.
Portable generators are designed to be moved from place to place. Generally powered by a small gasoline engine, these generators are ideal for those who would like to be able to power an RV or trailer but wouldn’t mind using their generator in a pinch to power areas of their home. Portable generators are typically smaller (though not always) and have a limited output capacity compared to larger generators, so you shouldn’t plan on powering your entire home with one for extended periods of time.
Standby generators are always “on standby” for your Weatherford home, meaning they're ready to turn on and fire up at a moment’s notice. This comes with one significant change: standby generators are always connected and can't be moved or easily relocated. This permanent connection offers you the benefit of never having to worry about refueling your generator, though. Most standby generators run on a natural gas or propane connection from your home, meaning they can run almost indefinitely.
Standby generators are bigger investments than portable generators, but their size and output make up for this difference in cost. Whereas most portable generators are going to be too small to provide your home with enough energy for all of your needs and appliances, a standby generator is capable of supplying power to your appliances, heating systems , air conditioner and more. Be sure to consult with a Weatherford electrical expert about what size generator you need before making your choice in order to make sure you’re getting one that will provide you with the power output you need
