How Home Generators Work

When you purchase a home generator from Towles Electric, Inc., you can always expect high-quality and reliable products that get the job done right. Our generators detect a loss of power and automatically turn on to supply power to all the electrical applications in your home, such as lights, refrigerators, and alarm systems.

Another generator feature we can set up for you includes the ability to program circuits that supply electricity to specific nodes or areas in your home. This gives you the opportunity to choose critical areas within your home that would benefit from constant access to electricity and light.

Once the power comes back on, the generator detects the restoration of power and will switch off. This reverts the home back to relying on utility power, forcing the generator to switch back to its stand-by mode and wait for the next power outage.


Who Benefits from Generators

Different people benefit from home generators for a variety of reasons. No matter your home situation, it is always easier to function in a home that has electricity when that’s what you’re used to.

One reason many people choose to get a generator for their Delaware home is that temperatures fluctuate and can be quite uncomfortable during different seasons. Having a generator allows you to combat extreme temperatures by keeping your heat or air conditioning running even when the electricity goes out.

Not only is this a general convenience, but it also is a necessity for some people. For example, keeping home temperatures regulated is especially important for the elderly, as well as individuals with healthcare needs or intolerance to temperature fluctuations.

In addition to temperature regulations, having a generator is also imperative for individuals who require oxygen therapy. If you rely on oxygen, you also depend on your home’s electrical supply, which means you can’t afford to lose power.

Choosing the Right Briggs & Stratton Standby Generator

The primary factor for finding the best standby generator for your home or business is what you want to power. Depending on whether you simply want to power the essentials, the whole building, or something in between dictates what the best option for you is. Here are a few key things to consider when choosing a generator:

Propane vs. Natural Gas

Natural gas is a more efficient fuel source that can power your generator for weeks, while liquid propane is generally a shorter-term fuel supply that can last several days. Liquid propane generators produce more power and demand more fuel, so large tanks may be necessary for your propane supply depending on your application.

Generator Size

Another major factor to consider when trying to determine the appropriate generator size is what household or business items you want to remain functioning normally during a power outage. Determine what is considered a necessity for you and use these factors to determine the size and cost of your standby generator solution.
