Between severe weather, wildfires, and other unpredictable grid disruptions, serious power outages can happen at any time in Boulder, Denver, Golden, Westminster, CO, and the surrounding areas. Make sure your home is ready with a high-quality standby generator installation from Vectra Mechanical Residential and Commercial HVAC.
If you aren’t prepared for it, a power disruption may be much more than a temporary inconvenience. It can lead to all sorts of problems, from food spoilage and waste to a loss of heating or cooling. If you have a powered medical device or medication that needs to be refrigerated, an outage can even be life-threatening.
Portable generators can be useful in emergency situations, but they’re often inconvenient and difficult to operate. They also pose a grave threat of carbon monoxide poisoning if used improperly. By contrast, standby generators automatically provide safe, steady power within moments of an outage. Even if you aren’t at home, you can be confident that you’ll be protected.
Standby generators are typically designed to last 10,000 to 30,000 hours of operation, which can potentially cover several decades. Nonetheless, like any mechanical system, even the most robust generators can unexpectedly wear out and break down. Changing electricity demands can also cause problems, potentially exceeding a generator’s rated capacity. Whatever the issue, Vectra Mechanical Residential and Commercial HVAC make generator replacement easy and affordable. We’ll remove your old system, help you choose a suitable replacement, and ensure it is installed properly. We can even help you determine whether replacement is necessary at all. In general, we recommend calling for a consultation if you’ve noticed:
Compared to portable generators, standby systems incorporate a few unique features. First, they usually run on natural gas or liquid propane instead of gasoline. Second, automatic backup generators are connected directly to your home’s electrical service panel using a transfer switch. This type of system is very safe and dependable, but proper installation is crucial.
At Vectra Mechanical Residential and Commercial HVAC, our skilled service techs have years of training and experience performing generator installations.
