Home generators can be very valuable assets in areas that frequently lose power. While power outages are often short lived, there are times where you cannot afford to lose power. Maybe you have a loved one with medical devices that rely on power, or you’re feeding a baby and have milk in the freezer. Regardless of the situation, it is never a bad idea to add a home generator.
There are two types of generators: portable generators operated by a switch or generators that are on automatic stand by. Marines Electrical can help you figure out which kind is right for you.

Generators can be helpful when you lose power for an unknown amount of time, providing power to your main appliances.
It will vary based on the brand and size of generator. We’ll need to pick a size that is compatible with your home.
Portable generators operated by manual switch require someone to turn them on in the even of a power outage. A portable generator on automatic standby will automatically turn on when it detects no power.
A portable generator will supply enough power to run septic systems, kitchen appliances (stove, microwave, fridge), and some lighting.
You don’t need a generator, but it can add a sense of security as it makes you more prepared for an unexpected situation where you don’t have power for multiple days.
