Types of Generators

Whole house generators come in all sizes. Some are small enough to keep the essential power on during a storm, and some are large enough to power an entire house. Our generator experts will help you figure out exactly which type works best for your home or business. We are proud to be certified installers for Briggs and Stratton, Generac Generators, and Kohler Generators.

Types of Fuel

Most generators are fueled by either propane or natural gas. Diesel fuel may be needed for larger commercial buildings which require a larger generator. Rely on the experts at Bailey & Shipp to help you choose the most appropriate generator for your home or business.

Turnkey Generators

Bailey & Shipp Electric is proud to offer generator installation services as part of our turnkey generator solutions. We understand the importance of having a reliable generator in times of power outages, and we make it our mission to provide quality generator solutions that meet your needs and budget. Our team of experienced technicians will take care of everything from generator selection, delivery, and setup, to maintenance and repairs. With Bailey & Shipp Electric’s turnkey generator solutions, you can rest assured knowing that your home or business will have the uninterrupted power you need when you need it most.

Standby vs. Portable Generators

Standby generators are larger units that require professional installation because they operate on natural gas, propane, or diesel fuel. They offer greater power output than portable models and automatically turn on when electrical power fails due to bad weather or other external factors. The generator's automatic start-up ensures you won't even notice the disruption of electricity - making them an ideal choice for homes and businesses where an uninterrupted power supply is critical.

On the other hand, portable generators are excellent for providing temporary power when on vacation or during emergencies. They are powered by gasoline and are generally smaller and more lightweight than standby models, making them easier to transport and install. They can be used to power lights, small appliances, tools, etc. 

Choosing the Right Generator for Your Home

When it comes to selecting a generator for your home, there are several factors to consider. Our team at Bailey & Shipp Electric can help you navigate through the different types of generators and determine the best option for your specific needs.

Some key considerations when choosing a generator include:

  • Power requirements: Assessing the electrical needs of your home will help determine the size and capacity of the generator you need.
  • Fuel type: Generators can run on various fuel types, such as natural gas, propane, or diesel. We can help you choose the most suitable option for your home.
  • Installation: Our experts can handle the entire installation process, ensuring that your generator is properly set up and connected to your home's electrical system.
  • Standby vs. portable: We can explain the differences between standby and portable generators and recommend the best option for your home's backup power needs.

By choosing the right generator for your home, you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with having reliable backup power during outages and emergencies. Contact Bailey & Shipp Electric today to learn more about our generator installation services.

Commonly Asked Questions

What are the signs that my generator needs repair?

Some signs that your generator needs repair include strange noises, leaks, failure to start, or uneven power output. If you notice any of these issues, it's best to have a professional inspect and repair your generator.

How often should I have my generator serviced?

It's recommended to have your generator serviced at least once a year, preferably before the start of the storm season. Regular maintenance can help prevent unexpected breakdowns and ensure that your generator is ready when you need it.

Can I repair my generator myself?

While there are some basic maintenance tasks you can perform on your generator, such as changing the oil and spark plugs, complex repairs and troubleshooting should be left to qualified professionals. Attempting to repair a generator without the necessary expertise can lead to further damage and safety hazards.

What should I do if my generator fails during a power outage?

If your generator fails during a power outage, first ensure your safety by following proper shutdown procedures. Then, contact a professional generator repair service to diagnose and repair the issue. Attempting to troubleshoot complex generator problems on your own can be dangerous.

How can I extend the lifespan of my generator?

To extend the lifespan of your generator, make sure to adhere to the manufacturer's recommended maintenance schedule, keep the generator clean and free of debris, and operate it according to the manufacturer's guidelines. Additionally, consider investing in professional maintenance services to ensure optimal performance.
