St. Johns Generator Installation

Our Electricians Keep St. Johns Comfortable When the Lights Go Out

It’s not a question of if the power will go out, it’s when. And, for many homeowners in St. Johns, a blackout is a major inconvenience. It not only means no TV but also no heating or air conditioning. A small percentage of people, however, might not even notice. This is because they have a standby generator and all the convenience that one provides. If you’re ready to get that same peace of mind, contact Chasco at (989) 224-3034 to schedule generator repair or installation.

How Does a Standby Generator Work?

A standby generator knows when the power is cut to your house and automatically starts up to restore electrical power to your home, even if you're away. This entire process takes less than a minute. Through electrical storms, brownouts, and blackouts, our St. Johns generator installation experts will back you up!

A standby generator—as opposed to a portable one—is designed to completely replace the power grid. Instead of powering one or two key appliances, you get to live life as normal. Once power is restored, a modern unit will return to its dormant state. If you have an older generator, the switchover might have to be done manually.

The Benefits of a Backup Generator

Could you and your family handle five or six days without having the lights on? How long would it take before your home became a place you could no longer stay? Beyond simple convenience, backup generators offer a number of benefits to homeowners in the St. Johns area.

Just imagine a future where you never have to worry about:

  • Packing up your family in the middle of the night to go stay at a family member or friend's house.
  • Needing to replace hundreds of dollars' worth of food and drinks and dealing with the mess of a thawed-out freezer.
  • The potential damage the loss of power can do to your home..
  • Scaring away potential homebuyers that have standby generators at the top of their shopping list.
  • Having to worry about those members of your family who are reliant on electrically powered medical devices and equipment.
That's the peace of mind that installing a standby generator in St. Johns can give you.

Whole-Home Generator FAQs

How Loud is a Whole House Standby Generator?

While older generators are deafening, new ones run at around 60 decibels. This is the equivalent to the sound of a conversation a few yards away. A typical AC unit, meanwhile, operates at a similar level. So, even if the new generator sits right outside your window, it won’t take long for it to fade to background noise.

To ensure it's there when you need it, you'll need to schedule regular generator service in Generator Installation and Service. During the appointment, our electrician will examine the unit for broken parts, switch out any bad filters, and change the oil in the machine.

Though the cost varies based on home size and the amount of power desired, the average homeowner will pay somewhere between $5000 and $25000 for a professionally installed generator. Much of the cost variation is due to the wide variety of generators available. Portable and temporary units, which can be purchased for around $300, are much more affordable but can only power a few devices at a time. In general, the more you pay, the closer you can be to normal during a power outage.

The cost depends on the price of natural gas or propane. During standby mode, an average sized unit will cost around $5 a month to run. While in use, that cost shoots up to between $20 and $30 per day. Though this may seem like a lot, it's way cheaper than a fridge full of wasted groceries or a night at a good hotel.
