Whole-House Generator Services in Pittsburgh, PA
The weather doesn’t always play nice here in Pittsburgh, PA. As a result, you need the right systems in place to stay comfortable, safe, and healthy. This means having an exceptional HVAC system and the right indoor air quality systems to keep your home and your family happy. None of this matters, however, if the inclement weather we experience causes a widespread power outage, and you’re without a backup generator to use your HVAC system, indoor air quality products, and more!
At Boehmer Heating & Cooling, we provide comprehensive whole-house generator services. It’s not enough to have a portable system, which can only manage an appliance or two and is mostly unreliable. You need a quality whole-house generator to keep your heater or AC running, your IAQ systems, your refrigerator and cooking appliances, and any other important electronics that are in your home, including medical devices.
For superior whole-house generator services in the greater Pittsburgh area, contact Boehmer Heating & Cooling today.
It can be easy to feel a bit overwhelmed by all the options when you’re shopping for a backup generator. Fortunately, our Pittsburgh generator experts can match you with the right system for your specific needs. Also referred to as an automatic standby generator, the whole-house generator is vital, and professional generator installation is even more important.
Folks throughout our area often think they can get by with a portable generator, but unfortunately this is not always the best option. Portable generators are great for purposes such as running a grill when you’re out camping, or providing lighting to an unattached garage or shed. When a storm shuts off your power for days, or even for hours, a portable system won’t do much to help you stay warm, keep your food from spoiling, and provide lighting and power to other important home components.
Just like any other important home appliance, a generator of any kind will eventually need to be replaced. The timing of this will depend on how well the system was maintained, and how often it was used. But typically, if your generator is over a decade old it’s time to consider an upgrade.
This is because in 10 years’ time, homeowners often make many electrical upgrades to their home and therefore have increased power needs. You might have also remodeled your home, adding on to it and adding on to the electrical system. If your generator is outdated, you won’t be able to rely on the necessary service it will bring in a power outage.
The best way to fend off the worst of repair needs is with professional generator maintenance. During this service, we inspect the entire system to make sure all the components are functioning as they should and there isn’t any sign of wear. It’s a good idea to have generator maintenance done once a year, and after every time it’s used.
There’s always the chance, as well, that even with maintenance you will eventually need professional generator repair. If you struggle to get power to certain appliances during an outage, or if your generator makes strange noises while its operating, it’s worth giving our team a call. It’s better safe than sorry!
A generator is one of those appliances you hope you’ll never need. But when you do need it, you’re thankful for it! Portable generators are great for one or two appliances.
