POWER THROUGH THE STORM
Downed power lines, natural disasters, lightning strikes, you name it—there are countless ways a home or building can lose power. No matter how dire the situation, a generator can provide safety, security, and peace of mind. In some cases, emergency backup power can mean the difference between life and death. As a Generac Power Pro Elite Dealer and Installer, All American Electric, provides the most comprehensive generator service for new and existing generator owners.
Who should own a backup generator?
Historically, it was assumed that people living in areas prone to volatile weather were at the highest risk of extended power outages. However, in recent years, extreme weather conditions have increased across the globe exposing more people to dangerous interruptions in power. Now, people everywhere can benefit from a reliable secondary source of power for emergency situations.
Outside of environmental factors, generators can help protect residents who rely on medical devices such as oxygen, dialysis, and medical beds for their livelihood. Generators can also power security systems, emergency lighting, and sump pumps to keep residents and their homes safe from harm.
How backup generators work
Permanent standby generators sit outside the home, just like central air-conditioning units, and are designed to automatically engage whenever the home loses power. Depending on the size of the generator, it can be used to power the entire home or only specific, critical devices.
Generac generators connect to the home’s natural gas or liquid propane fuel supply and deliver energy directly to the electrical panel. Once power has returned to the home, the generator automatically shuts off and awaits the next outage.
Air-cooled vs liquid-cooled generators
The difference between air-cooled and liquid-cooled generators lies in the engine. Air-cooled generators are powered by engines that use fans to force air across the engine for cooling. Liquid-cooled generators use enclosed radiator systems for cooling, similar to an automobile. Generally, liquid-cooled engines are used on larger kW generators due to the size of the engine required to achieve a higher power output.
