What to Know About Home Generators

Whenever you hear the word "generator", so many individuals immediately think of a small device that runs on gas and creates enough electricity to power a few appliances. However, home generators can do so much more than their smaller, portable counterparts. Depending on the size you buy, a standby home generator could power just the bare necessities, or keep your life completely uninterrupted in the event of a blackout. In hurricane-prone areas such as Southern Florida, a home generator is a must for anyone who does not want to, or can’t afford to lose power. Families with children and elderly relatives living with them especially benefit from home generators, as these individuals require more consistent and higher quality care.

Generators are extremely important and practical pieces of equipment, and they have been for many years. It is such a great feeling to know that when everyone else is town has lost power, that you are still able to function inside of your home and continue with your life uninterrupted. If you are really curious about what to know about home generators, contact the experts at Assurance Power Systems today!

The Benefits of a Standby Home Generator

Simply put, a home generator keeps the lights running even when the power is out. Unlike portable generators, a home backup generator is installed directly onto your home and automatically comes on whenever it detects a power outage. This means that even if you are out of town, you won’t have to worry about coming home to spoiled food due or a sweltering house. Whereas portable generators run on gasoline, a standby home generator is attached directly to your natural gas line, meaning you don’t have to worry about running out of fuel and being left in the dark! If maintaining your quality of life, no matter the weather conditions is important to you, a home generator is the way to go.


When it comes to pricing on generators for your home, it all depends on the size of the generator, and how much power you want. At Assurance Power Systems, we offer three basic powering options: Partial House Protection, Whole House Managed Load, and Whole House Protection. Partial House Protection will ensure that the basic necessities of your home stay on, so you keep comfortable while you ride out the outage. Whole House Managed will power an entire averaged sized home, and the automatic load shedding feature will keep your generator from overloading itself. Our Whole House Protection option makes it as if the power never went out in the first place! It powers your entire house – no exceptions.

Hire the Best

It is important to make sure and hire a professional to install your standby generator, someone who extensive experience with installation and is knowledgeable about the local building codes as well.
