During a natural disaster or other power outage situation, there is no substitute for having a power back-up. Having connections to power allows you keep up with your responsibilities and to keep your home functioning normally. You will save a lot of money, time, and energy by having an electrical backup system professionally installed. At Harrison Electric in Plymouth, Minnesota we install smart generator power backup systems. Here are some of the ways a backup electrical system is essential:

Smooth Transition Between Power Losses

A home power backup provides supplemental power throughout your entire house through the circuit breaker. The added generator only takes a few seconds to power up when it detects an outage. When the power comes back on, it runs a few more minutes. This lag time ensures the power is stable enough for the generator to shut down and recharge its self-sustaining supply.

Keep Work Connections Running

Having a power backup can keep business equipment operating when the power goes out. The transitions from primary power to secondary power are necessary if you run a small business or work from home. A standby generator sends power to your outlets, so you can keep operations running smoothly throughout the day. We can install a custom generator that suits your home’s most basic power needs.

Keep Necessary Machinery Running

Sometimes you need to run critical machinery even though the power is down. Many people are dependent upon medical devices. Devices such as power wheelchairs and scooters, breathing machines, respirators, ventilators, oxygen, suction, or home dialysis equipment all depend on power to keep functioning properly. A backup battery is excellent, but if you're out of power for days, it doesn't help much because there is no actual power source to recharge it. A backup generator makes depending on these medical supplies possible when primary power fails.

Depend on Normal Conveniences 

You depend on many of the devices and appliances in your home for your daily activities. Refrigerators, water heaters, washers, and dryers add convenience to you and your family. If you want to continue your daily routine, an electrical backup system can keep things moving so you don’t have to be left in the dark.
