Like any other machine, a generator has a lifespan. Repairs can help but your generator will need to be replaced eventually. There is unfortunately no magic number for when you should replace your generator but there are a few things our Neighborhood Electric experts can evaluate to determine whether you need a generator replacement. These factors include the number of hours the generator has run, whether replacement parts are available, its size as well as your property size, and more. Give Neighborhood Electric a call to have one of our trained professionals evaluate your needs it may turn out that you dont need a complete replacement after all or we may discover that you need a revamp to keep your electricity supply steady.
While portable generators are convenient to carry and have a lower initial cost, the initial savings can quickly be outweighed by the replacement costs and the frequency of power outages. Though a standby generator may have a slightly higher initial cost, its advantages outweigh its disadvantages in the long run. A permanent standby generator will start up in a matter of seconds in the case of a power outage; there is no need to run around in the dark looking for the portable generator. Standby generators also last much longer and are safer than portable generators. Call Neighborhood Electric to have an expert electrician install your standby generator safely and securely.
