Choosing a Backup Generator in Greensboro

Greensboro Generac generator installation services from Roby Electric

Generators come in various sizes based on how much power they provide. In other words, the number and type of appliances you want to power determine the size of the generator you need — not how big your house is.

One of our Greensboro residential electricians can help you decide which level of wattage you need from your backup generator. Most people want at least overhead lighting, air conditioning or heating, the refrigerator, and some cooking appliances to remain powered. Other devices you might want a backup generator to charge include:Roby Electric offers Kohler generator installation in Greensboro, NC

  • Sump pumps
  • Televisions and cable boxes
  • Computers, modems, routers
  • Medical equipment
  • Security systems
  • Garage door openers
  • Wine coolers and other specialty appliances

Natural gas, liquid propane, and diesel are all fuel source options for backup generators. Diesel generators offer great fuel efficiency, but cost more upfront. Gas and liquid propane generators are still very efficient and are easy to refuel with replacement tanks.

For help choosing a backup generator in Greensboro or its surrounding areas, contact Roby Electric or call (336) 791-2161​ to discuss your electrical needs, fuel options, and budget.

Greensboro's Generator Installation Experts

Roby Electric can help you get the most out of your backup power supply. Our team of professionals helps homeowners: 

  • Find the proper-sized generator - We can help you determine how many amps of electrical service are needed to power the appliances you want to use during an outage.
  • Prevent damage to the grid -  Improper wiring and switches connected to your new generator can feed power back to the power grid incorrectly, which can be dangerous and expensive to fix. We make sure the cut-off switch will prevent this issue.
  • Automated transfer - When the storm hits, you don’t want to have to figure out how to turn on a generator in the dark. Electricians can wire the generator with a transfer switch so you barely have a moment without power or install a standby backup generator that automatically transfers power at a moment's notice. You'll barely notice the power is out!
  • Safe manual transfer switches - If you prefer a manual switch (turning your generator on yourself), we will make sure it conforms to all appropriate NEMA safety standards.
