Best Home Generator for Potomac, MD Homeowners

This last year saw an increase in extreme weather incidents in our area. Homeowners across Maryland lost power, sometimes for several days, until their utility company could restore power. For most residents, a day without electricity is a good reason for family members to talk to each other again over a delivery pizza and a board game someone pulls from the back of the hall closet. When a family member has certain medical needs, however, even a short interruption can quickly become a problem.

Every homeowner and resident in our neighborhoods need a reliable emergency power source when storm season strikes our area or when an accident cuts a major power line or knocks down a utility pole. PSI, Inc. is a licensed electrical contractor, ready to provide our Potomac, MD customers the best home generator available.

There are other concerns than medical of course. Once the power goes off, refrigerated items such as milk, vegetables, and many juices spoil quickly. Even if the power went out overnight and no one opened the refrigerator until morning, all of these items already began to warm up. By the time breakfast is over, nearly everything inside is spoiled, or too warm to taste good. Frozen foods usually survive longer. After 24 hours, every steak, chop, hamburger, and hot dog needs to be thrown on the grill for cooking and consumption.

That grill might be your only option. If the stove top and oven are not gas powered, then there is no way to cook much of the food in your refrigerator and refreeze before it spoils except for the propane or charcoal powered grill in the backyard. When did you last check to see how full the tank or bag is? The only reliable solution to save hundreds of dollars in food costs is to have the best home generator available and ready to support your Potomac, MD residence when the power goes out.

If the power goes out when the weather is warm or just beginning to cool, it might be uncomfortable, but not life-threatening. If the temperature has climbed over 90 for more than a day or two, the lack of air conditioning can be dangerous for older people, small children, and women late in their pregnancy. A reliable generator can keep everyone not just cool, but safe.

Even worse, the power could go out in winter weather. The threat to the health and safety of your family is much greater when the temperature dips below freezing. An ice storm can and has weighed down and snapped power lines across the state. When that happens in multiple locations, electricity can be interrupted for several days and even a week in remote areas without a backup generator.

PSI, Inc. exclusively sells and installs Generac Power Systems residential, diesel generators. The American manufacturer designs and builds power supplies for private residences, as well as light commercial and heavy industrial uses. We also provide complete servicing for every generator sold at our retail outlets across Maryland. As a licensed Pro Dealer for Generac, we can also offer price deals and additional services not available from retail outlets and other dealers.

So regardless if the problem is extreme weather, a damaged transformer, or a cut power line near a construction site, PSI, Inc. has the best home generator options for your Potomac, MD residence.

We can help you ensure both the safety and the comfort of your family when the power goes out. Each Generac model we offer senses the electrical interruption and engages automatically to keep your lights on, food preserved, and security system active.

As a Pro Dealer for Generac, PSI, Inc. can also offer a no-cost, no-obligation in-home assessment to everyone interested in securing a power source ranked as number one for standby generators. One of our inspectors performs a complete walk-through of your home and addresses what your requirements are when the area electrical grid fails due to weather or another difficulty.

It all makes us specifically qualified to provide the best generator option for your home. After completing the inspection, and if you decide to go with our company, PSIians help you determine the safest location for your new generator and then get to work.

The safest option is to place the generator outside the home, but limit the exposure to the elements. This means placing the generator next to the home, but away from the wind. In many cases, it is necessary to set a concrete pad in place, so the generator has a solid foundation while operating. For very large home, or one that may have limited farming requirements, we may recommend placing the generator close to the home, but provide it with its foundation and a shed to protect it from the elements.

The best home generator for the average Potomac, MD home is a Generac 7.5 kW PowerPact™ standby. Keep in mind that a standby generator is not a portable generator. These machines are much quieter, and can usually generate far more power than a portable device.

Unlike a portable, standby generators are hardwired into the home’s electrical system. Each turns on automatically when the power is interrupted and protects the circuits leading to appliances like refrigerators and medical equipment, along with well water pumps and septic systems.

The Generac 7.5 kW PowerPact™ provides power to and protects 8 circuits in your home using a 50-amp, NEMA 1 lightweight transfer switch. It is rated for indoor lights and appliances, and comes with a 3 Year Limited Warranty. The proprietary, True Power™ Technology provides best-in-class rated electricity with only a minor distortion (5 percent) for smooth, continuous operation for days and weeks when the power grid is down. Each generator is enclosed in a galvanized, steel shell, and has a powder-coated finish to protect it from even the extreme weather our area occasionally experiences. All Generac products are engineered and assembled in the USA.

In addition to 24/7 support from PSI, Generac provides a 24-hour customer service support line that operates from its headquarters in Wisconsin. Additionally, customers and dealers have access to their Mobile Link™ Remote Monitoring System. It allows anyone with access to monitor the status of their generator, to include if it is operating, when it activated, and how long it can operate before running out of fuel. Mobile Link™ also provides alerts and notices when your Potomac, MD best home generator requires an inspection or other routine maintenance.

If you already have a home generator, Power and Systems Integration can provide regular servicing of your backup power supply.
