Stop worrying about power outages with a backup generator installed by Pipe Works Services
Extreme weather used to be rare. Today it’s the new normal. That’s why many homeowners are protecting themselves from power outages with standby generator installation.
When severe storms take down the power lines, a whole-house generator can provide backup electrical power to keep key home systems operational.
With a properly sized home generator, you won’t need to empty your refrigerator or move into a hotel.
There will be no need to prevail upon friends if you need to take showers, wash clothes or enjoy the comfort of a heated or air-conditioned living space. A home generator comes to the rescue with backup electrical power when the grid goes down.

Permanent installations are preferable to portable generators
Pipe Works Services recommends that homeowners opt for a permanent standby generator rather than a portable model. Portable generators can pose safety hazards if they’re not set up or operated correctly.
In contrast, a permanent standby generator is installed in a safe location and has built-in controls to ensure safe operation under all conditions. Natural gas and propane are the preferred fuels for permanent home generators.
Pipe Works Services installs Kohler brand home generators that are designed to come on automatically when utility-supplied electricity is interrupted.
Special circuitry installed between the generator and your main electrical service panel can allocate standby electrical power to different circuits. This control circuitry ensures that key home systems (water heaters, HVAC systems, refrigerators, etc.) can keep operating.
Difference between standard and whole-house generators:
There are a few major differences when deciding on a generator for your home. A whole-house generator provides your home with full backup power from 22kW to 48 kW. A standard generator only provides power to a few items at a time with 9kW to 20kW. A whole-house generator has a larger engine and can run for a longer period. They are also a lot quieter than the standard backup generator. Our professionals are ready to help you decide on the best generator option for your Chatham home.
