Whole-House Generators in Butler County, PA

In the event of a power outage, there’s no appliance you need more than a whole-house generator. And we're not talking about the portable generators that you wheel around and fill with gasoline—whole-house generators outclass them completely. Also referred to as standby generators, these devices are installed by a licensed electrician just outside your home and are capable of powering your entire home for the duration of the blackout. In times of emergency when the future is uncertain, these systems are lifesavers.

Installing a whole-house generator is not a task for an amateur or DIYer, however. The system must be properly rated for the demands of your home’s electrical system. It also must be properly integrated so that it turns on and off automatically. If you have the work done with Kennihan Plumbing & Heating, Inc., you can rest assured that your installation will go off without a hitch.

Generator Maintenance and Repair is Crucial

The only thing more important than a proper installation is proper maintenance and repair—and that’s not something we can overstate. There’s nothing worse than experiencing a dire need for your generator in Butler County, only to find that it has fallen into disrepair. It’s not uncommon for startup batteries to lose their charge after remaining inactive, and it’s possible that fuel or coolant lines can crack over time.

We highly suggest running your generator once every few months, for about thirty minutes at a time. If you notice any issues with it during that time, you can call our generator service experts to get those problems squared away. Aside from that, you’ll want to get annual maintenance just to ensure that you’ve covered all of your bases.

Generator Fuel Types

Whole-house generators are available for installation with several different types of fuel. What you choose will depend on what’s available to you in your Butler County home, what you already have installed, or simply what you think would be most convenient. Some of your options include:

  • Propane Generators: Propane has a long shelf life, but propane generators do require a storage tank on your property. You’ll want to be sure that you have enough propane on-hand for even prolonged power outages.
  • Diesel Generators: Diesel is an efficient fuel source that’s readily available even in times of emergency, but diesel generators are not always the most eco-friendly.
  • Natural Gas Generators: Natural gas is perhaps the most convenient fuel choice; all you need is access to a fuel line and you have "unlimited" fuel. Natural gas generators are ideal, but not everyone has access to gas lines.
