Backup Generators Are Essential For Many In Southern Utah

Air Conditioners Don’t Work Without Power & St. George and Southern Utah Gets Hot!   

Let me share a personal experience.  Last summer the condenser unit on my homes air conditioner failed and within 3 hours the temperature inside my home had increased to 92 degrees!  It was too hot to stay in the house and so my household stayed with friends and family for a few days until the replacement unit could be installed.  It was inconvenient and frustrating not being able to be comfortable in my own home.  But, it started me thinking… what if there was an extended power outage?  Not only would by air conditioner not work… my refrigerator and freezer would stop working, my microwave and electric oven would stop working, my wifi routers and home computer would go offline, my CPAP machine wouldn’t work, and I wouldn’t be able to charge my electric vehicle, and of course my lights would be out. When we think of a power outage the first thing we think about is “the lights being out”, based on my experience the lights being out is the least of my concerns.

Important Considerations

Independent Fuel Source: Home standby generators need to have an independent fuel source, most of the communities in Southern Utah have natural gas connections directly to your home. If your home doesn’t have a natural gas connection you can power the generators with propane.  A common questions is– “If the power goes out will my natural gas still be flowing?”  The short answer is yes. Natural gas distribution is separated from the power grid. Natural gas distribution is powered and pressurized by its own fuel.  The only reason both electricity and natural gas distribution may stop is in the event of an earthquake.  Natural gas lines are intentionally shut off until all lines can be pressured tested.  

Permits and Licensing: When considering a home backup generator installation it is important to get the necessary permitting.  HOA’s and cities have different requirements for home backup generators.  

Professional Installation:  You have probably seen the generator displays in the local hardware stores.  It is important to note the sticker price that you see in the stores are indicative of only the generator equipment cost.  It often will not include the cost of an automatic transfer switch, professional installation, underlayment, permits, etc.  Unless you are a properly trained electrician home backup generator installations are not a weekend do-it-yourself project.  Home backup generators are powerful and operate with high amperage improperly installed generators can cause a fire hazard.  Additionally, backup generators installed too close to doors or windows can cause additional hazards.
