Generators in Chicago, IL
Think about the last time there was a power outage in your home. You might have been without power for a day or more, or you might have only lost it for a few hours. The problem is that, when there is a power outage, you typically have no way of knowing when it will turn back on. You spend hours in your home feeling uncomfortable without any air or heat. And finally, you may have to decide to spend the night at a hotel or a relative’s house.
All of this is a major hassle, and it is rather expensive as well. You spend money going out to eat, traveling, staying the night elsewhere, and losing all of the food in your refrigerator. And for some people, a power outage takes out the sump pump, making flooding and water damage more likely. That’s why a whole-house generator is so useful for residents of Chicago and the surrounding areas. Call Elm Heating & Cooling, Inc. for generator installation or service. We’ve been keeping Chicagoland comfortable since 1953.

How Whole–House Generators Work
A whole–house generator is unique in that it doesn’t need to be switched on manually. Many whole–home systems installed today come with automatic transfer switches, which automatically switch to gas power as needed. When the power goes out in your home and all of the lights turn out, just give it a few seconds. Your transfer switch is always on, and it’s able to detect when electricity has stopped flowing, generate power shortly, and deliver it to the entire home via natural gas. Some generators use alternative fuel sources, but natural gas is typically the easiest way to power a generator if you have a connection to a gas line.

Servicing Your Generator
If your generator were to quit working suddenly, you might not be able to tell. You only really need your generator to work a few times during the course of a year, so a sudden breakdown may not be obvious. Call in technicians to service your system once or twice a year if you want to see that it is always working properly. And if you notice problems with the system, such as external damage or frayed wiring, report them promptly so that a technician can start working on the repairs. Newer systems also often have self–testing features which alert you to problems automatically, so check for these when you are on the hunt for a new system.
