What is a Backup Power Generator?
With a portable generator, you can provide a source of electricity in an emergency. Generators create mechanical energy and have a rechargeable battery. A fuel tank holds diesel, gasoline, or natural gas to power the generator. An engine and alternator convert the mechanical power of the residential backup generator into electrical power for your home.
If you have a generator already, proper maintenance ensures that it remains in working order when you need it the most. If you don’t have a generator, invest in a standby generator so that you never have to experience a day without electricity. If your area’s electrical supply goes down, a residential generator provides backup power to your essential systems.
When it comes time to replace your portable or standby generator, we recommend Kohler, a brand that stands by its products. Here is a brief description of the two main types of generators.

Frequently Asked Questions About Generator Installation
Installing larger generators, especially whole home generators
designed to power multiple systems in a house during an electrical outage, requires a licensed electrician. Professional installation is necessary to avoid inadvertently voiding your warranty for the generator due to errors. Having your generator Installation performed by a licensed master electrician also ensures proper connections and safe operation of your generator.
If you plan to power your entire house with a whole home generator, you will need enough wattage to supply multiple major electrical appliances. A large, high-quality, dual-fuel 10,000-watt generator is a good option for many homes.
If you want a generator for your travel trailer, a 3,000-watt inverter generator can probably power everything you want to use, including the air conditioner, refrigerator, TV, lights, and more.

The cost of a large generator for emergency home power use varies widely, depending upon the type and size of the generator. Generator installation costs also vary, depending on the location of the generator, the amount of electrical wiring needed, and other factors, plus any annual maintenance and repair allowances that may be included.
On a monthly basis, depending on the current price for natural gas, the cost to run your emergency generator in exercise mode should only cost a few dollars per month. Running the generator during power outages, at a 50% load can be expected to cost about $20-$30 per day for gas. This is, of course, much less than the price of renting a hotel room or replacing ruined food, and much more convenient!
Air-cooled generators emit a noise volume of approximately 66 decibels at a distance of around 20 feet. This means that you can carry on a typical conversation between a couple of people at normal speaking volume while standing beside an air-cooled generator that is running.

must be properly performed to ensure safety and optimum performance.
You may need to have your gas meter upgraded to accommodate a large whole-house generator. Part of having a generator installed by a DK master electrician is a site survey that includes a Gas Inventory Report. After recording the model of your present gas meter, an inventory will be taken of all gas-fueled appliances in your home. Typically, when a gas meter upgrade is required by the local gas company, the process is simple and only minimal cost is charged to the homeowner.
