Don’t leave generator installation to amateurs.

Texas families are adding home generators at an exponential rate. Power outages affect homeowners at the most inconvenient time, which is why generators for the home are in such high demand. Home generator installation offers families immediate relief and peace of mind during an unexpected event.

Generators supply electricity to your home during power outages. During a power outage, it allows you to continue to operate essential appliances such as refrigerators, computers, heating and cooling systems, and lighting. The process that generators employ involves converting mechanical energy into electrical energy. This is the same process that is used, on a larger scale, to produce electricity for entire communities by your local utility provider. In essence, a spinning shaft powered by an engine is used to produce a magnetic field through a coil, which in turn produces an electromotive force.

Home generators are either stationary or portable. They run on a variety of fuels including, gasoline, diesel, natural gas, propane and oil. Generally, gasoline portable models are less expensive to purchase; however, they typically have shorter run times because of the need to refill the tank, if used constantly. And if the outage is due to wide spread outages or severe weather conditions, gas pumps may not be operational. Natural gas with its constantly available supply tend to be more reliable for stationary models.

Del Rio Electricians offers customers three main options for generators. You can choose a whole house generator, a point of use generator or a portable generator.
