Prepare for Hurricanes with a Backup Generator You Can Count On

In South Louisiana and Mississippi, the risk of hurricanes is very real. Compared to a rolling blackout hitting a few neighborhoods for a couple hours at a time, whole cities can go without electricity for days, weeks at a time. But with a standby generator it doesn’t have to happen to you and your family.

With generators kicking on only a few mere moments after the power has gone out during a hurricane, you will maintain access to one thing that’s more important than anything else during an emergency: communication with the outside world. By having the power available to run your television, operate your computer and charge your cell phones, you will be able to monitor what’s going on in your area direct from news sources instead of waiting for word of mouth to make its way to your home.

As far as hurricane preparedness is concerned, you’ll already be set with many of the things you already have in your home. Your fridge and many of your cooking appliances will keep operating, allowing you to prepare the meals you already had in mind for the upcoming days. Since your meats, dairy and other perishable items won’t be going bad for lack of refrigeration.

And for those who have a sump pump or rely on well water for many of the home’s needs, having power running to the systems that operate them could mean the difference between waiting out a hurricane and its aftereffects in relative comfort or attempting to rely on the government while battling long lines and impatient crowds for limited resources.

The generator engineer will need to know the following to confirm your backup system design:

  • Yard space: Where will the generator go? Is there any aesthetic requirement?
  • Backup equipment: wall space is needed for the power transfer equipment
  • Circuits: Are there critical circuits to be powered by the backup system, or does the whole house need to be powered?
  • Loads: What are the average and peak loads of the backup circuits?
  • Permitting jurisdictions, gas utility, Homeowner’s Associations, and other requirements for project fulfillment
