KPRC News: Generator Safety
Standby generators are quieter and safer than portable models and they operate automatically. Since they are fueled by propane or natural gas, they are very energy efficient. They will provide power to your home within seconds of a power failure and switch off automatically once utilities have been restored, even when you are not home. However, these systems are more expensive. They require a licensed, expierence electrician to inspect the electrical system and install the appropriate sized generator for your home. They will also need regular maintenance to ensure they are safe and reliable. Standby generators will recoup a significant amount of their cost upon resale of the house. And for some families with medical issues, the availability of constant power for medical equipment can save lives.
