Even on a stable power grid, you should always plan for power outages when living in the northeast. Our unpredictable weather means outages are common and can last anywhere from a few hours to days on end. This is why so many families are considering whole-home standby generators as an alternative to small battery backups and portable solutions. With a standby generator, you’ll never have to worry since they engage as soon as an outage occurs. And better still, they’ll automatically shut themselves off when your power is restored.
Whether you’re just researching your options or looking for service on an existing generator, the generator experts at Heritage Home Service are here to help.
Whole Home Generator Services in Massachusetts
Depending on the size of your home, portable generators and battery backups will only get you so far. This is especially true if you live in a remote area where storms could leave you without power for extended periods of time. Another consideration is for family members who may be oxygen-dependent, or who need access to constant electricity for their comfort and wellbeing. If you check any of these boxes, a whole-home standby generator can be a lifesaver for you and your family’s comfort.
The biggest benefit of a whole-home standby generator is that it can be powered by an existing natural gas line to your home, or through propane tanks buried in the ground. Portable generators require you to store bulky equipment and brave the elements outside to refill throughout the day when needed. With a near-constant self-supplied fuel source, a whole-home standby generator can power your entire home without moving a muscle.
Heritage Home Service has a dedicated team of experienced generator technicians ready to serve our Massachusetts customers. For new generator installation, we choose Generac, an industry leader in performance and quality, but we can work on almost all residential makes and models, including Kohler and Briggs and Stratton. Whether you need replacement, maintenance, or repair, when it comes to generators, we do it all.
You may think that since your generator only runs when there is an outage that routine maintenance is rarely needed. This isn’t the case. In fact, your generator runs through test cycles periodically throughout the year to ensure it’s operating effectively. Just like all emergency equipment, they should be checked annually for wear and tear and have common failing components replaced before a problem occurs. Routine maintenance also helps to maintain your manufacturer’s warranty.
