One of the best ways to do this is by installing a standby generator. A standby generator is a type of generator that automatically turns on in the event of a power outage. This means that you'll never have to worry about losing power during a storm or other emergency. However, installing a standby generator can be a complex process, which is why it's important to work with a licensed, experienced electrician like Horsell Electrical.
The first step in installing a standby generator is to choose the right location for it. The generator should be placed in a well-ventilated area that is away from any potential hazards, such as flammable materials or high-traffic areas.
It's also important to consider the size of the generator and how much space you have available. There are regulations to be followed (see below) but we will ensure they are met and your generator is safely installed.
Once you've chosen the right location, the next step is to get the necessary permits. This will typically involve obtaining a building permit and an electrical permit. The process can take some time, so it's best to start this process as early as possible but it’s fairly simple and we can assist with this process. More info can be found here and here regarding permits and the safety rules and regulations for generators.
Once you have the necessary permits, it's time to start the installation process. This typically involves running electrical and gas lines to the generator, as well as installing a transfer switch. A transfer switch is a device that automatically transfers power from the utility to the generator in the event of a power outage. It's important to have a licensed electrician like Horsell Electrical for the whole installation process as it can be dangerous to do it yourself.
When it comes to the actual installation of the generator, it's best to leave it to the professionals.

As generators are mostly installed outside (even in sheds or lockers) they still get worn by the elements and so need maintenance or repairs. They can go unused for long periods and are also prone to wear and tear so sometimes they need fixing. Most generator faults can be fixed so give us a call if you have a faulty generator.
