Home backup generators and whole house generators can keep your home’s power running throughout power outages. Generators can keep your whole home or your essential appliances such as heat, water, refrigeration, lighting, and more, running. Generators will sit outside and provide power automatically to your home’s electrical system within seconds of the power going out.
In-Home Generator Placement
Generators should be far enough away from the home to avoid exhaust entering through windows, doors, or other openings. They should be in a location that doesn’t flood and is non-restricted so technicians can perform maintenance and repairs when needed. Generators need to be placed on flat and safe surfaces such as concrete slabs or gravel. They are typically placed in an obscure location away from trees and neighbors.
How Long Can In-Home Generators Run?
Generac generators typically last for around 25 to 30 years, or around 3,000 hours of run time when they are properly maintained. When generators are neglected or ignored they are more likely to experience expensive problems in the future or fail when you need them during a power outage. Not running your generator regularly can cause additional problems such as contamination, sludge, clogs, and leaks.
