Frequently Asked Questions

Generator options vary, but the two main categories are standby generators and portable generators. Standby generators are permanently installed and automatically turn on when power is lost, offering seamless backup power. Portable generators, on the other hand, are mobile units that require manual setup during an outage. Your choice depends on your specific needs and budget.

The generator’s size, also known as its capacity, depends on the electrical load you want to support during an outage. A professional assessment is crucial to accurately size your generator. Local Choice Electric can conduct a load analysis to determine the ideal generator size for your property, ensuring it meets your power needs without overloading.

Generators are reliable, but like any machine, they require regular maintenance to stay in peak condition. We recommend annual maintenance to inspect, clean, and service your generator. This ensures it’s ready to perform when needed most. Our maintenance services include oil and filter changes, battery checks, and comprehensive system inspections.

Generator installation costs can vary significantly based on factors such as the generator’s size, brand, location, and any necessary electrical or plumbing work. Local Choice Electric offers competitive pricing and can provide you with a detailed quote after a site assessment and consultation.

Maintenance and repair services are not typically included in the initial installation cost. However, we strongly recommend investing in a maintenance plan to keep your generator in top condition. Routine maintenance is essential to ensure your generator performs reliably when needed. We also provide generator repair services if any issues arise.

Benefits of a Standby Generator Installation

North Carolina weather can be tricky, we could receive hurricane type weather to frozen precipitation so any time there could be an outage of power.

Being without power isn’t only inconvenient; it can be dangerous for some residents. So, if you’ve never considered installing a standby generator, here are a few things that might change your mind.

Protect Your Food From Spoiling

A power outage can lead to rapid food spoilage. The CDC warns that food in refrigerators can spoil within 4 hours, and in freezers within 24 hours, during a power outage. A standby generator acts as a safeguard, ensuring that your food remains preserved and safe to consume, averting the risk of foodborne illnesses and the financial loss of spoiled groceries.

Ensuring Continuous Electricity for Essential Needs

For those who depend on electrically powered medical equipment, a power outage is not just a matter of inconvenience but a serious health hazard. In today’s world, where many people work from home or operate home-based businesses, an uninterrupted power supply is essential to maintain productivity and livelihood. A standby generator ensures that your life and work continue seamlessly, even during a power outage.

Maintaining Normalcy with Water and Appliance Access

Extended power outages severely limit access to basic amenities like hot water, making tasks like showering, cooking, and cleaning challenging. The absence of a standby generator means resorting to cold showers and limited cooking options. The inability to use everyday appliances like ovens and microwaves can disrupt your daily life significantly.

Weighing the Cost vs. Benefits of a Standby Generator

While the initial cost of installing a standby generator may seem substantial, it pales in comparison to the potential costs and stress of living without power for extended periods. The comfort, safety, and convenience a standby generator provides during uncertain North Carolina weather are invaluable.
