Buffalo, NY Whole-House Generators

Do you worry about your home’s power on stormy winter nights or during the summer heat waves here in Buffalo? It’s a perfectly understandable fear. The elements put your home’s electrical system to the test and increase your chance of facing a power outage. While small, portable generators work well in situations where you just need temporary relief, they can’t support your home in a power outage that lasts for anything longer than just a few hours.

Since we’re at risk of long-term power loss in our area, a whole-house generator is a wise choice. If you’re going to invest in your home by choosing a whole-house generator, make sure you also extend this care to the team you choose. Our professionals at Scherer Electric can help you choose the right whole-house generator and provide the best electrical services available for this system.

Choosing a Generator for Your Home

If you’re interested in installing a generator in your home, then you’ve probably already done your fair share of research. You probably know that there are a wide variety of systems on the market including whole-house generators, standby generators, and portable generators. While each of these systems has their benefits, we only recommend whole-house generators.

Whole-house generators are the only house generators capable of handling the power needs of a home for an extended periods of time. Investing in this type of house generator is the only way to ensure that you’re freeing yourself from the hassles and risks of a power outage. If you have older loved ones who rely on medical devices for their livelihood, young children, or you personally just want to be safe in your home in the face of a disaster, make sure you opt for a whole-house generator.

When to Upgrade Your Generator

Not sure when you need to upgrade your generator? Here are a few signs:

  • Increased Power Needs: Sometimes the home you move into can’t accommodate your needs forever. If your family has grown and you’ve renovated or added on to your home as a result, you might need a more powerful generator to back up your home. Contact our professionals to assess the system.
  • Updated Technology: If you’ve had your generator for more than 10 years, it’s a great idea to update your system. Newer generator models have more advanced technology that helps you monitor the system and prevent future problems. The worst time to find out that your generator is out of fuel is in the middle of a power outage! Make sure you invest in the system that backs your home.
  • Past System Failure: Has your generator ever failed in the face of an outage? Don’t just explain this problem away as a fluke because you don’t want to deal with the hassle of upgrading your system. Finding a new generator can save your home during an outage.
