Understanding the Value of Whole House Generators for Aurora Homes

A backup generator installed outside a home

Living in Aurora, we all know how unpredictable the weather can be. Power outages are more than just a nuisance—they can be a serious risk, especially for those relying on medical devices that need constant power. At Done® Plumbing, Heating, Cooling, and Electric, we prioritize your safety and comfort, ensuring that your home remains powered no matter what.

What is a Whole House Generator?

Imagine never having to worry about power outages again. A whole house generator, also known as a standby generator, is your home’s ultimate backup power source. Unlike portable generators that only cover the basics and need manual setup, a whole house generator kicks in automatically as soon as the power goes out. It supports your entire home, from lights to appliances, and is seamlessly integrated into your electrical system, running on natural gas, propane, or diesel.

The Benefits of Installing a Whole House Generator

Stay Powered, Stay Safe: When the power goes out, a whole house generator ensures that your life continues without interruption. Keep your refrigerator running, stay warm (or cool) with your HVAC system, and maintain lighting and security systems. This is crucial in Aurora, where blackouts can be frequent and long-lasting. For those with medical needs, a whole house generator is more than a convenience—it’s a potential lifesaver.

Cost Factors of Whole House Generators

Investing in a whole house generator is a smart decision, and several factors can influence the cost:

  • Size and Power Output: The right generator size depends on your home’s needs. Typically, a 15-20kW generator is perfect for most households. Choosing the right size ensures optimal performance and cost-efficiency.
  • Fuel Type: Most generators in our area run on natural gas or propane, which are both readily available and cost-effective. Diesel options are also available for homes without natural gas access.
  • Professional Installation: Proper installation is key to ensuring your generator works safely and reliably. Costs can vary based on your home’s specifics and local regulations, but our experts at Done ensure a seamless and compliant setup.
