Electrical Services: Whole-Home Generators for El Paso and Surrounding Areas
If you need supplemental electrical service in El Paso, Texas, whole-home generators can run major appliances, lights and heating cooling systems for a typical household. The certified technicians at Scott Heating, Cooling & Plumbing can evaluate your power supply needs and recommend a generator that will provide hours of continuous use.
Features of a Home Generator
Home generators come in various sizes, rated by kilowatts. They must have enough power to start up, called KVA, which requires high wattage for a short time. Standby generators turn off and on automatically and must be connected to a breaker panel with the correct amperage to run the unit. Smaller generators are usually air-cooled, using fans to blow air over the motor. Large units are usually liquid-cooled, using a radiator and hoses to circulate oil or coolant that absorbs heat from the motor.
- Small home generators, generally below 7 kW, can power lights, well pumps, refrigerators, furnaces and garage door openers.
- Mid-sized units, up to 22 kW, are usually ample for a 2,500 square foot home with a 4-ton central AC system and gas cooking range, heating and water heaters. They support small appliances, computers and kitchen ovens.
- Large units, up to 60 kW, can power virtually anything in a home.
Generator Installation and Safety
Proper installation is key to performance, safety and service life. Technicians at Scott Heating, Cooling & Plumbing use industry standards to size and install every piece of equipment we sell. We talk with you about your backup electrical requirements and recommend robust, easy-to-use units that will suit your needs.
We place a high value on safety. Generators run on natural gas or liquid propane and produce carbon monoxide, an odorless gas that can be deadly. Industry standards require placing the unit at a safe distance from the living space and ensuring it is properly exhausted. Our technicians match the generator to an automatic transfer switch and connect it to the appropriate power supply. After installation, our technicians instruct you about how to operate your new generator safely.
