Generator Services in Hammond, LA
We have a reliable electrical grid in the Hammond, LA area, and the public utilities do a good job of getting electrical power up and running again when storms or other problems knock down the power lines. Mother Nature still has the final word, however, and we’re no strangers to hurricanes and other wide-scale disasters which can knock out the power for days or even weeks.
The solution is a whole-house generator installed by the friendly professionals at Professional Heating & Air. A backup generator in your home will ensure that you always have power during an emergency: keeping you comfortable, safe and in touch with the outside work. Other types of generators include: portable generators and automatic standby generators. We provide a full range of generator installation, generator maintenance, generator repair and generator replacement services throughout the Hammond, LA area. Call us today and let us show you what we can do.
Start With an Energy Audit
Generator installation in the Hammond, LA area requires a fair amount of preparation, which is why you should always rely on a trained professional to put a back–up generator into your home. You first need to determine the power levels of the system. Your technician will perform an energy audit to determine how much power your home requires.
Ideally, the whole house generator should be able to power all of your electronic devices, but if you need a smaller generator, the audit will help you separate what you really need to run (the refrigerator for example) with what you can leave turned off until the emergency passes (such as a video game system).
Placement Is Key
Once you know the size of your new generator, the question becomes where to place it. Some generators rely on diesel fuel and the like to run, while others can be fed by natural gas lines (which are rarely affected by storms or hurricanes). Either way, the generator needs proper ventilation, access to your home’s electrical grid and placement where it can be easily reached in an emergency. In some cases, it also requires fuel set aside to last at least several days and replacement parts for vital components such as spark plugs. (Specifics vary by the type of generator.)
Once all those calculations are complete, the technician can set the generator up and have you ready to go in a flash! Technicians can also provide generator replacement services if you have an older generator that needs to be put out to pasture.
Generator repair & maintenance
A properly installed generator can power your home reliably for many years in the event of a disaster, but it won’t do you much good if a problem suddenly arises in the face of an oncoming storm. That’s why we offer a full array of generator repair & maintenance services in Hammond, LA to check your system in the off–season and generator repair services for those times when it needs a little TLC before going to work.
