Backup Generator for Home

Backup Generator for Home. Imagine the great sense of annoyance and dread when you're inside relaxing or working away looking at your screen. Then without warning you hear the distinct sound and dullness as in an instant the power goes out. All is quiet now, lights out, even the familiar humming of the refrigerator or air/con have gone. It's a humbling feeling knowing loss of power is out of your control. This is why homeowners who like to be prepared are choosing backup generator power.

Is a backup generator worth it?

Power outages seem to happen at the worst possible times, from storms, bush fires, falling trees, planned power outages maintenance works or other issues. Many homeowners in Australia experience prolonged periods without power, for days, causing all sorts of problems. Losing food due to fridges/freezers not working, loss of comfort because the air-con can't run, electric powered water-pump not working, and not being able to see in the dark at night are some of the common problems.

Don't worry Genworks Australia can help you get your power back, with a backup generator. Taking all the hassle out of power outages! 

Which backup generator is best for a House?

We work this out by determining the type and number of appliances you want to power. Then consider how often you may need the generator? If you're in an area where power outages happen only once in a while then a basic portable generator with manual changeover switch is the cheapest choice. If you are at risk of severe prolonged power outages, have medical equipment that is critical to run, or work from home then a stationary generator with automatic transfer switch (ATS) is the best option.

How to install backup generator at home?

There's a couple ways to do it:

You could have a Manual Changeover Switch installed into your power board by a licenced electrician and use a portable petrol or diesel generator for backup power.

Portable Backup Generator

The best option for backup generator power is to have a fully automatic system installed, Stationary Diesel Generator with Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) panel. These systems are built in our workshop, they are customised to suit your individual generator backup power needs.

We could quote to install the generator for you or you may only need us to provide assistance to your own electrician. If you're ready to power-up with our generator works expertise and support on hand then call the Genworks Australia team now. (07) 3466 0658
