Stafford Backup Generator Services
Prepare for an Emergency, Call Aces Electric Today
What happens when the power goes out in your home? Your lights go out,
your heating and cooling stops working, and your important appliances
like your refrigerator, freezer, and computers all stop working. At best,
this can be particularly annoying. At worst, this could jeopardize important
things that you depend on. Food can spoil if it is not temperature-controlled
for too long, and important medicines could be ruined when they are allowed
to warm up. For this reason, going without power for even a short amount
of time may not be an option for you.
If this is the case for you, reach out to Aces Electric and learn more
about how a backup generator can help you through these emergencies. We

Standby Generator Services
Standby generators are by far the easiest and most popular type of backup
power that’s readily available for your home. A standby generator,
as the name implies, is always on standby, waiting for the moment you
need it. They are wired into your home directly, meaning they can detect
when the power goes out and automatically fire up to start generating
power when needed. Because they are permanently installed, you won’t
need to pull the unit out of storage, plug it in, and worry about the
engine firing up properly.
Most standby generator units are powered by natural gas, meaning they can
be hooked into your already-existing utility line to provide you with
power in the event of a disaster. This also means no need to worry about
refueling your generator to keep it running. Likewise, this also makes
standby generator units substantially quieter than most portable generators,
and more eco-friendly. However, they do come at a greater cost: the investment
to install one of these systems is much higher than the cost to purchase
a portable generator.
Portable Generator Preparation
Portable generators are what most people think of when they hear the words
“home generator.” These systems usually use a small, gas-powered
engine to turn a motor that generates an electric current. This current.
This electrical power can then be hooked to your home to provide limited
electrical capacity for a short duration. The process is simple, effective,
and requires very little investment.
Portable generators are also a more affordable option. Generally, a small
portable generator can be purchased for as little as a few hundred dollars,
though prices go up as generator capacity and features improve. Before
hooking a new portable generator to your home for the first time, we recommend
letting our experienced electricians inspect your home to determine the
safest way to do so. We’ll also make sure you know how to properly
hook up your generator so that you can use the power it produces with
