How do whole home generators work?
1. Utility Power Is Lost
Perhaps it’s a storm. Maybe it’s equipment failure. In any case, the electricity you depend on is suddenly gone and you’re stuck in the dark.
2. Your Generator Senses a Problem
Within seconds, your generator prepares to restore your home’s power.
3. The Generator Turns on Automatically — Whether You’re Home or Away
Within seconds, it is up to speed and generating electricity.
4. Your Electricity Is Restored
The automatic transfer switch sends generator power to your home. And it will continue until utility power returns.
Just like any other engine-powered machine, generators require regular maintenance. Whole home generators keep themselves in shape throughout the year with weekly low-speed exercise cycles. Electrical Works can work with you to ensure that your whole home generator is operating at peak performance to ensure that when the power goes out, your generator will be ready to bring you back into the light.
Many generator manufacturers support Mobile Link. With Mobile Link, owners can view their generator’s status and maintenance needs, set the unit’s exercise schedule, review it’s running and maintenance history, and receive push notifications to indicate status changes. They can even arrange to send notifications to Electrical Works. This makes maintenance easier since dealers can spot any issues in advance and can ensure the generator is operating smoothly.
