Prepare for the Next Outage

At ARC Electric Company we stress preparedness – whether its having smoke detectors properly installed in your home, or having a CurrentSAFE test done to make sure your home’s electrical is top notch or even having a whole home generator installed. We want you to be prepared for anything – so why not prepare for the next power outage?
 
Sometimes Mother Nature throws the South a curve ball and we temporarily lose power due to a storm, sometimes our power companies have issues causing homes to lose power and sometimes human error can lead to an entire block being without power. Whatever the reason is, be prepared for the next outage!
 
After our most recent storm and outage, we received several calls inquiring on a whole home generator. One homeowner even mentioned they had a portable generator, but typically when they need it the weather is rough and its in storage and its a hassle. On top of a portable one being a hassle, it doesn’t come on within seconds of an outage like a whole home generator with an automatic transfer switch would do. Sometimes peace of mind is the best feature. For me, knowing my heat will still run and my freezer will still get power during any outage is worth this purchase.
 
While ARC Electric Company offers several different brands of whole home generators, we strongly recommend KOHLER whole home generators. KOHLER Generator offers some of the best warranties in the business with an impressive 5-year, 2,000-hour warranty protection, plus a corrosion-proof enclosure that’s built to last. (14kW and 20kW models feature corrosion-proof enclosures; all other models feature corrosion-resistant enclosures.)

How does a Generator work?
The whole home generator is comprised of two basic parts – the transfer switch and the generator itself. The transfer switch monitors the electricity coming in from the utility. When it detects the power has stopped, it sends a signal to the generator, which starts running. The house then receives the electricity being generated at your home. When the power is restored by the utility, the transfer switch transfers the home’s electrical needs to the utility and turns the generator off. All of this is done without involvement of the homeowner.
 
Why do I need a whole-house generator?
When the power to your home fails a whole home generator with an automatic transfer switch will kick in automatically providing you with continuous power to essential appliances. Many people can live without lights in the bedroom, but have you considered that no electricity in your home means:
* Food spoils in the refrigerator
* Basements can flood because sump pumps stop working
* Water may stop flowing if you are on a well pump; worse still, sewage may back-up into the house if you have a septic pump
* The heat shuts off even if you use natural gas, propane, or oil – no electricity means those devices won’t work either
* Security – you are sitting, possibly alone, in a dark home – security systems will start to fail after just a few hours
* Telephones land lines fail and you can’t charge your cell phones
* Excessive heat – Who likes living in a home with no air conditioning, no fans, and no cool drinks while waiting for the power to be restored?
* Medical needs – Do you care for someone who may need electricity for health reasons or is weakened and can not handle extremes of temperature?

 
What size generator will I need?
The answer is “that depends”. Smaller electrical loads need smaller generators and bigger loads require bigger generators. We will be glad to help you decide what electrical loads are important to you. We do offer FREE Generator quotes – call us to schedule your appointment today! (704) 821-7005.
 
How big is the generator?
Generators are actually quite small. Air cooled units (up to 20 kW) take a 3’ x 5’ mounting area and are nominally 2’ wide, 4’ long and about 2.5’ tall. Liquid cooled units are a about a foot longer in each direction.
